The BTEC Electronic Engineering
course leads to a nationally-recognised BTEC Level 3 Certificate
and makes an ideal entry to an electronic engineering career.
The course will teach you the
basics about Analogue and Digital Circuits and take you up to more
complex elements and the use and behaviours of components such as
resistors, capacitors, diodes, and transistors.
You will study the Principles and
applications of electronic devices and circuits, and also the
application of analogue electronics.
You will use your electronic
engineering training to explore different electronic applications,
such as the construction of digital systems in electronic
You will work on building practical
circuits using our kit of parts and learn to test your circuits to
ensure that they function correctly.
On completion of the BTEC
Certificate in Engineering course you will have the knowledge you
need to enter a range of electronic engineering jobs at trainee
To enrol in the
BTEC Electronic Engineering course, you must be over 16 and should
be educated to at least GCSE standard A*-C or equivalent in
Mathematics and Physics.
It is assumed that
you are already familiar with electrical theory; voltage current
and resistance; resistors capacitors and inductors; and the use of
basic instruments such as multimeters.
Once you've completed the BTEC
Level 3 Certificate in Engineering course, you'll hold an
industry-recognised qualification that can take you into a trainee
electronic engineer role. Alternatively, you can progress to
further study and enter the industry at a higher level.
On completion of your course, you
will receive the BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Engineering
(Specialist - Electronic) (QCF)
This qualification also attracts 20
UCAS points when passed.
UCAS Tariff is a means of allocating points to compare post-16
qualifications used for entry to higher education.
For more information on Tariff
points please see the UCAS website.
Assignments are a great way of
checking your progress. During your BTEC course, you will
complete three end-of-unit assignments.
- Assignment 1: Principles and Applications of Electronic Devices
and Circuits - Written test paper
- Assignment 2: Principles and Applications of Analogue
Electronics - Written test paper
- Assignment 3: Construction and Applications of Digital Systems
- Written test paper
Each assignment question may ask
you to write a short essay (of several paragraphs), draw a circuit
diagram, draw a waveform, and create a truth table. The
assignments could also ask you to write a report. Study the
grading criteria for each assessment prior to completion to
ascertain what is required for each paper.
You will also be asked to provide
photographic and video evidence to show the circuits you have built
Assessments can be sent to us
online via the ICS Student Community: it's the fastest way to
receive your results.
Because we're experts in home
learning, ICS knows about and offers all the support you need along
You'll receive study materials that
have been specially designed for distance learning by experts in
your chosen field.
You will also receive a free set of
materials called Mathematics to Help with Electronic
You'll receive a kit of parts for
you to use to build and test your analogue and digital circuits.
Your circuits will be built on solderless breadboard and use a
voltage no greater than 6V so it will be perfectly safe for
you to use.
Students will not be supplied
with standard equipment such as screwdrivers, wire cutters, wire
strippers or Anti-static equipment.
As a BTEC Level 3 Certificate in
Electronic Engineering student, you'll receive the complimentary
textbook: Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics.
Alongside your materials, you will
have access to an experienced personal tutor both online and over
the phone, ready to help you with guidance and motivation.
You'll also be part of the ICS
Student Community, where you'll have access to activities and
online resources, and your account information, as well as vital
links with your fellow students, with the chance to discuss your
work, ask questions and make new friends.
