Basic Engineering

Understanding basic engineering

Our basic engineering solutions are designed to meet the requirements stipulated within BTEC First, National and Higher National awards. A growing area of understanding and development for Matrix, here we provide resources that teach the basics. From applied electrical science to fault-finding in electronic circuits and basic pneumatics teaching, all of these kits are designed for those studying at a basic level of engineering from the age of 14 upwards.

Level 1, 2


Electricity, magnetism and materials

This kit provides a comprehensive range of practical assignments into electricity and magnetism and is ideal for those who are studying science and electricity.


Electronic devices and communications

This solution provides a broad-based introduction to electronics and provides substantial syllabus coverage of the relevant BTEC First Award (Unit 7).


Fault finding in electronic circtuits

This solution allows students to gain experience of fault finding, students learn how to use test equipement, to understand a circuit´┐Żs function and then to deduce a fault.


Automatics interactive courseware

The Automatics interactive courseware is a complete pneumatics and automation curriculum in the form of an interactive PC application.


Automatics essentials solution

This solution provides a complete introduction to pneumatic circuit design and construction.

"Matrix solutions are simple and easy-to-use and the resources provided allow students to learn at their own pace. With easy to read symbols on Locktronics and Automatics solutions students can see their experiments come to life which is a great way of reinforcing learning"
