By Mike Tooley BA; Advanced Technological and Higher National Certificates Kingston University

BTEC First Engineering is a key path e-book masking the obligatory center devices of the 2006 BTEC First Engineering schemes from Edexcel. complete insurance is given to the typical center devices of the certificates / degree (units 1 and 2), plus the extra obligatory devices for degree scholars (units three and 4), for all pathways. It additionally covers the 3 universal professional alternative devices came upon inside every one pathway: picking out Engineering fabrics (unit 8), utilizing machine Aided Drawing concepts in Engineering (unit 10), and digital Circuit building and checking out (unit 19).

BTEC First Engineering scholars will locate this a transparent, easy and simply available textual content, which inspires self reliant examine and covers the entire center fabric they are going to be following all through their path. Knowledge-check questions and actions are incorporated all through, in addition to assessment questions, leading edge 'Another View' good points, and labored mathematical examples, all of which relate to real-world engineering contexts.

Students will achieve a worthy perception into a number of parts of engineering expertise and comparable industries, supplying a possible springboard to additional education, eventual development to skills inside of better schooling, or to acceptable employment. For these scholars wishing to development to BTEC nationwide, this article covers all of the important fabric required as a prerequisite for development to NQF point three.

The ebook is supported with huge on-line assets. At scholars will find:

  • a 2nd CAD package deal that may be used to hold out the sensible CAD actions defined within the booklet
  • downloadable CAD drawing templates and Visio image libraries
  • an engineering fabrics database which are transformed and further to by means of students
  • spreadsheets for fixing a few universal engineering calculations
  • additional software program and an online quiz for unit 19.

In addition, for teachers basically, has solutions to the evaluation questions in devices three and 4.

A Curriculum help Pack by way of a similar writer can be that can be purchased. This pack bargains a vital suite of educating source fabric and photocopiable handouts for the obligatory middle devices of the 2006 BTEC First Engineering schemes from Edexcel. complete insurance is given to the typical center devices of the certificates / degree (units 1 and 2), plus the extra obligatory devices for degree scholars (units three and 4), for all pathways.

Mike Tooley is previously Vice relevant and Head of school of Engineering at Brooklands collage, Surrey, and is the writer of many best-selling engineering books.

* bankruptcy by means of bankruptcy fit to the obligatory middle devices of the hot BTEC First Awards in Engineering
* extra assurance of the typical professional devices featured inside of all pathways of the syllabus
* full of positive aspects to motivate studying - knowledge-checks, actions and perform questions - and entire with extra assets to be had for obtain, for either teachers and scholars
