Cambridge Nationals (Lev 2) Engineering Manufacture

Awarding Body : OCR

Overview of Course

Engineering manufacture is a discipline dealing with different manufacturing practices and processes using machines, tools and equipment that turn raw materials to new products. Learners will discover the processes involved in manufacturing new engineered products.

It provides learners with the knowledge and skills required to operate manufacturing tools and equipment used to make products from the requirements of a design specification. It develops their understanding of the processes and systems required to transfer a design concept into a product.
