A recent Russell Group guide to making decisions about post-16 education states that Design & Technology is recognised and viewed as useful for many degree courses and future careers.  For example:

 Aeronautical Engineering

  • ESSENTIAL ADVANCED LEVEL QUALIFICATIONS - Mathematics and Physics.
  • USEFUL ADVANCED LEVEL QUALIFICATIONS - Further Mathematics, Design Technology, Computing/Computer Science.

 

 Architecture

  • ESSENTIAL ADVANCED LEVEL QUALIFICATIONS - Some courses say they want an arts/science mix. Some may require Art.
  • USEFUL ADVANCED LEVEL QUALIFICATIONS - Art, Mathematics, Design Technology and Physics.

 

Engineering (General)

  • ESSENTIAL ADVANCED LEVEL QUALIFICATIONS - Mathematics and Physics.
  • USEFUL ADVANCED LEVEL QUALIFICATIONS - Further Mathematics, Design Technology, Computing/Computer Science.

 

 Mechanical Engineering
