  • Unit 8: Electronic Circuit Construction and Testing

Course structure

This BTEC engineering course is designed to give younger students a clearer understanding of engineering. It is the perfect opportunity to see how almost all material things in modern life have been designed and created by engineers.

This level 2 engineering course is assessed by assignment in units 2 and 8 and through an online test set by the qualification provider.

Unit 1: The Engineered World

The Engineered World focuses on learning about the many different types of engineering sectors, product materials and processes that there are. Students studying the Level 2 BTEC in Engineering will also look at the development of new ideas and will gain insights into how the future will continue to be influenced by ultra-modern engineering ideas.

Unit 2: Investigating an Engineered Product

Investigating an Engineered Product is a unit where students are able to reverse engineer several products to find out how they were made and why they were designed in a particular way. They will discover the issues of sustainability and learn how we can ensure that there will be enough resources for future generations. During the unit, students will also get to investigate making products using skills learned on the course.

Unit 8: Electronic Circuit Construction and Testing

The Electronic Circuit Construction and Testing unit is where the students will learn how to use a variety of soldering equipment, as well as how to manufacture a variety of circuits on different circuit boards. The students also learn how to design electronic circuits and use computer aided drawing programs to create their own electronic circuitry.
