THIS COURSE IS FOR S4 PUPILS WHO ARE STILL AT SCHOOL
This course will provide the essential skills required for entry into the Engineering FA in S5.
Pupils will develop the skills and knowledge necessary for mechanical and electrical engineering principles and will experience practical working on a range of engineering systems, including fitting, using hand skills, fabrication engineering, manufacturing project design and electrical and electronic engineering. Pupils will gain an insight into other engineering disciplines and will be supported with SI units and ‘elements of engineering’.
You will attend College for two afternoons a week. In the year you will complete units at SCQF level 5 and this will be the building blocks for a successful continuation in the Engineering FA (in 5th and 6th year).
