About the apprenticeship
Course length: 4 years, part-time
Start date: September 2024
Course level: Level 6
University award: BEng (Honours) Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology
How much it costs: funded through the employer
- Learn electrical principles and specialisms across electronic and embedded systems.
- Gain design and implementation skills and apply them in projects on the job.
- Study a range of electrical and electronic engineering specialisms, including the design and implementation of networks using communications and signal processing techniques, appropriate engineering management, and instrumentation and control systems.
- Work towards chartered engineer status to help you advance your career.
This apprenticeship is co-designed with a range of industry partners, including a local, national, and international network of leading manufacturers and engineers.
How you learn
You’ll gain the professional skills you need for a successful career, including business awareness and product design standards and legislation.
You’ll learn through:
- part-time study at Sheffield Hallam
- work-based learning assignments
- real time demonstrations
- investigative project work
- portfolio work
You will progress through the course following successful achievement of assessments, which address the learning outcomes for each module and allow you to complete the course.
You'll also complete an endpoint assessment towards the end of your course.
You'll study at our City Campus, with modern teaching labs and cutting-edge physical equipment and software applications which you will use during the course of your study.
Throughout the course, apprentices spend at least 20% of their working hours at university. They can be existing employees looking to develop their careers, or new applicants to the business.
- be over 18
- not be in full time education
- have the right to abode in the UK
- meet the course entry requirements
GCSE (or equivalent)
The usual entry requirements are GCSE (or equivalent) mathematics and English at grade C or grade 4, or above.
If you don't have this yet, you'll need to achieve this level before you take your end-point assessment.
UCAS points and college grades
- 112 UCAS points including at least 64 points from two A levels or equivalent BTEC. National qualifications to include mathematics or a mathematics-based subject to at least AS level. For example:
- BBC at A Level including mathematics or a mathematics-based subject plus at least one other from physics, physical science, engineering science, computer science, technology, chemistry or other science or technology subject.
- DMM in BTEC Extended Diploma in a science or technology-based subject (including passes in mathematics and two other science or technology-based modules).
Alternatively, we will accept a combination of qualifications but must include mathematics or a mathematics-based subject and may include AS levels, EPQ and general studies.
