Administered by City & Guilds from 2001 - 2011, the Engineering Council Examination provided one means of meeting the academic requirements for professional qualification as a Chartered Engineer.

The Engineering Council Examination ceased to be available after 2011, with one last re-sit opportunity offered by City & Guilds in May 2012.  A joint Engineering Council and City & Guilds statement about the cessation of the Engineering Council Examination after 2011 was publicised and is available under Useful Documents. 

Past candidates who have undertaken any part of the Engineering Council Examination and wish to request affirmation of achievement or have any other queries should contact City & Guilds at 

City & Guilds has developed a Graduate Diploma and Postgraduate Diploma 9210 suite of higher level qualifications. These may be suitable for learners who were planning to take the Engineering Council Graduate Diploma or Post Graduate Diploma examinations (9107), or who took some of the units but did not manage to complete the required units for certification before the examinations were closed. This Graduate Diploma and Postgraduate Diploma 9210 suite of higher level qualifications were not developed with the Engineering Council’s involvement and cannot therefore be endorsed by the Engineering Council. City & Guilds has liaised with a number of discipline-specific engineering institutions to ensure the qualifications are aligned with the registration requirements for Incorporated Engineer (for the Graduate Diploma) and Chartered Engineer (for the Postgraduate Diploma). 

For further information, please contact City & Guilds at or visit the City & Guilds website at: 

Please do not contact the Engineering Council about these qualifications as we are unable to provide advice.
