At University of Birmingham School we want to prepare our young designers to think independently and become problem solvers of the future with the skills needed for industry, business and commerce.
New for September 2021
Our A level Design Engineering course is a fantastic choice for students looking to expand and apply their scientific and mathematical knowledge, whilst also developing practical skills and in-depth understanding of what Engineering has to offer.
When you study Design Engineering at UoBS you will learn practical and technical skills in our state of the art engineering workshop & classrooms, which is equipped with industry standard technology that will help you gain basic hand skills, milling, turning, laser cutting & 3D printing experience.
Our expert staff will also introduce you to aspects of robotics, simulation, modelling, electronics, systems & control, product engineering, computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D modelling, using software such as Matlab, Simulink , Solidworks & Google SketchUp Pro. This will be utilised when you undertake your own iterative design project (which is worth 50% of your overall grade).
These practical, technical and software skills are highly sought after by universities and employers alike.
We work closely with the School of Engineering at the University of Birmingham to broaden your experience and exposure to the world of engineering. Upon successful completion of the A level Design Engineering Course you may be able to progress to Undergraduate Engineering courses at the University of Birmingham’s School of Engineering or other competitive institutions. However, this course also offers pathways into advanced or degree level apprenticeships with companies such as BMW, Jaguar Land rover, HS2, Airbus, Bombardier etc.
