    Short answer, both

    You can get into most universities to study pretty much any type of engineering (Mechanical, Aerospace, Electronic, Civil, Integrated etc.), however some will require a level maths or the 2 BTEC Maths units as listed below:

    The best universities that accept the BTEC Engineering with no A level in Maths include:

    UCL (D*D*D* inc. Maths/FM for Engineers)
    Southampton (D*DD inc. Analytical/FA Methods)
    Durham (with foundation year)
    York (DDM inc. Maths/FM for Engineers)
    Cardiff (inc. Maths for Engineers)
    Bath (Electronic Eng only. inc. Maths/FM for Engineers)
    Nottingham (DDD inc. Maths/FM for Engineers)
    Liverpool (D*DD inc. Maths/FM for Engineers)
    Lancaster (DDM inc. Maths/FM for Engineers)
    UEA (DDM fot BEng, DDD for MEng)


    In terms of going straight into employment, I think following the Level 3 BTEC a wise move would be to go for a Higher Apprenticship, in which you will usually be put through a relevant Engineering degree or other Higher level qualifications such as a HNC, HND FdEng, NVQ4 etc.

    Good schemes include:

    Rolls Royce where you can do many different roles and if you get onto their sponsored degree programme you get put through a degree in Engineering Management and also potentially an MEng and CEng certification. They say you will need the equivalent of 3 A*-B grades at A level, so for the BTEC that would be anything from DDD upwards, probably wise to aim for D*D*D* as it is a competitive programme.

    others include;

    Ford - http://www.ford-apprenticeships.co.u...-requirements/ : again they put you through HE qualifications including a degree also as before the requirements are similar, DDD+ and you will need the Further Maths for Engineers unit as part of your BTEC

    BAE Systems - also offer many higher apprenticeship schemes in various areas of Engineering and generally require MMM+




    Hope this helps
