Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

CPD - Continuous Professional Development

Some of the most important lessons occur outside the classroom.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a compulsory professional practice requirement for all Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Professional Engineering students at Monash Clayton.

CPD is part of meeting the Engineers Australia Stage 1 Competency Standard to be a Professional Engineer. It’s also an opportunity to engage in business and engineering-related activities, build your employability skills and grow your professional networks and contacts

To pass the CPD unit you need to complete a minimum of 420 hours of professional practice activities outside the classroom during your Monash course, create a written record detailing the skills you develop and apply during those activities, and answer assessment questions reflecting on the key Engineers Australia Stage 1 competencies.
