What is the Pearson BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Aerospace and Aviation Engineering (Development Technical Knowledge)?

The Pearson BTEC Level 3 Diploma and Extended Diploma in Aerospace and Aviation Engineering (Development Technical Knowledge) have been developed through close collaboration with the Aerospace and Aviation Apprenticeship employer group, professional bodies and other awarding organisations.

In both qualifications, learners have the opportunity to:

  • develop the technical knowledge, understanding and skills required to meet the requirements of a number of Aerospace and Aviation Engineering Apprenticeship Standards. This includes areas such as mathematical techniques, principles of aircraft materials and airframe construction, aerodynamics and the theory of flight, and human factors and behaviours in aviation
  • develop a range of positive attitudes and professional attributes that support successful performance in the aeronautical engineering work environment
  • achieve a nationally-recognised Level 3 qualification.
  • Each unit can be delivered individually, contact us for more information.
  • Each unit is graded at Pass, Merit or Distinction.
  • Level 3 is broadly equivalent to A’ Levels

UCAS

Grades available are Pass, Merit, Distinction

Progression Opportunities

Learners who have achieved the qualification could progress to engineering operative or semi-skilled fitter job roles in the engineering industry or to other qualifications such as the Pearson BTEC Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Engineering and the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Engineering Maintenance.

Students who gain enough UCAS tariff points will be able to apply to the HNC Engineering (RQF)
