Engineering Science 

In this course students will learn to create solutions to everyday problems. This course will introduce students to a range of engineering principles. Engineering Science is a study of the roles of engineers in society, and of the knowledge and skills modern engineers are likely to have.

The course is split into three main areas:

  • Engineering Contexts and Challenges 
  • Electronics and Control
  • Structures and Materials

Throughout the year, students will develop a range of theoretical knowledge and practical skills, to be able to plan, design, build and evaluate solutions to engineering problems.

Students will learn how to use a range of simulation software and equipment.


  • Engineering Science is recommended as a pupil choice along with Mathematics, Physics and/or Computing Science – it should not be seen as a replacement for other science subjects.
  • Strong skills in Mathematics are required to succeed in Engineering Science.
  • Meeting deadlines and being resilient are important features of being successful in this course.
