The City and Guilds Diploma in Engineering is a practical engineering course in Kent, with two distinctive pathway options. It is ideal for students who wish to learn or build upon existing practical skills in machining using machine tools, electrical installations and electronic circuit construction.

Assessment

The diploma in engineering is assessed at our Sittingbourne skills centre through student’s practical work, short answer written exams and multiple choice exams. There are also two online tests set by the awarding body.

The two mandatory units below will be externally assessed by an online exam:

  • Unit 201: Working in Engineering
  • Unit 202: Principles of Engineering Technology

These sessions are classroom based with all lessons set in an engineering context. In unit 201 you will study the health and safety requirements of engineering, communicating effectively and interpreting engineering information.  In unit 202 you will study the basic mathematic and scientific principles that underpin engineering, as well as the basics of material selection.

Alongside the mandatory units, Machining students study on the City and Guilds Engineering Diploma:

  • Unit 203: Principles of Manufacturing Technology
  • Unit 204: Machine Components using Milling Techniques
  • Unit 205: Machine Components using Turning Techniques
  • Unit 206: Using Bench Fitting Techniques

These units will be taught in practical lessons, with an emphasis on building skills with hand tools and machining metals to a variety of tolerances.
