This must include Maths, plus either Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Engineering/IT-related Technology or an additional Mathematics-related subject. A further A Level in any subject at grade C or above is also required. Alternatively, you could have an engineering-focused Level 3 extended BTEC at DDM minimum. You’ll also need GCSEs (or equivalent) at grade C/4 in English Language and Grade B/5 in Maths.

You'll start by completing foundation training at a local further education college, which will give you a broad appreciation of manufacturing engineering principles. After this, you’ll be ready to embark on a series of six-month placements.

You’ll undertake internal job-specific training courses over the remaining three years as well as studying for your university qualification on day-release. All of this will give you practical knowledge in areas such as introducing new products or controlling change to existing manufacturing processes, acquiring new technology and continuous improvement.
