Our Cambridge National in Systems Control in Engineering introduces students to how microprocessor control systems are used in a variety of engineering environments.
Students develop practical skills by designing, producing and testing the operation of simple electronic controls.
Students learn about the fundamentals of electronic circuits and how they relate to the design, maintenance and repair of electrical/electronic systems used in engineering products. They design, construct and test electronic circuits using appropriate techniques, procedures and equipment, including fault-finding and identifying potential electrical hazards.
Students develop their knowledge and understanding of the construction techniques and processes used in the manufacture of electronic and electrical circuits. They use computer-based simulation software to prototype and test the operation of circuits and produce designs for printed circuit boards (PCB). They also learn how to evaluate the performance of a simple electronic circuit.
Level 2 Engineering Systems and Control is essential for further Engineering courses and Engineering linked occupations, including electronics
Developing transferable skills that are widely recognised and applicable to the world of work including:
By choosing to study Level 2 Engineering Systems and Control you will gain access to a wide range of potential occupations and A Level courses.
Links with employers will be an integral part of the course and will develop skills to enhance career opportunities.
You will developed a range of programming and electronics skills that can be utilised in further pathways.
