    You can do a foundation year with a BTEC (I know someone who has done just that), but some universities don't like admitting people fresh out of college - when did you do your BTEC? I suspect you could do a MSc in maths with a joint hons undergraduate degree, yes. Maths grads often end up working for engineering firms but they're not engineers themselves.

    Maybe, you need to research foundation years and look at university entry requirements. There are some that accept recent college leavers (Sheffield Hallam, for example). Click here to see list of foundation years: http://search.ucas.com/search/provid...=&SubjectCode=

    There are no maths foundation degrees by the way. Focus on foundation years.

    I don't know, he has to do some research.

    If you want to go into engineering just do engineering. It really is that simple.
