Engineering Design

The UK is in the business of high added value, high technology, sustainable engineering and manufacturing. We listened to, and worked closely with, employers such as JCB, Siemens and Rolls-Royce, and professional bodies like the Royal Academy of Engineering, as well as the University of Northampton and teachers from schools and University Technical Colleges, to make sure that the next generation of young engineers is equipped with the skills demanded by employers in the engineering community. Cambridge Nationals deliver these skills across the whole range of learning styles and abilities, effectively engaging and inspiring all students to achieve great things.

The Cambridge Nationals in Engineering provide sufficient breadth to maintain the skills central to engineering while also allowing specialist skills to be developed.

Engineering design is a process used to develop and enhance new products and systems as a response to market opportunities. This qualification is an opportunity for your students to study the processes involved in designing new engineered products. They’ll use practical skills such as drawing, computer modelling and model making to communicate design ideas. there will be 3 coursework tasks and one examination.  The qualification will also encourage them to consult with a client and, with its practical focus, will engage them in producing, testing and evaluating a prototype in the form of a model.
