What do I need to do?

If you are a Bachelor of Engineering or Master of Professional Engineering student at Monash Clayton then you need to complete your CPD in order to graduate.

This 7 minute video explains the steps to complete for CPD:

There are three main steps to completing your CPD requirement:

Step 1 - Complete a minimum of 420 hours of professional practice activities outside the classroom during your Monash course

Step 2 - Create an online written record on Student Futures that demonstrates the skills you develop and apply during those activities

Step 3 - Submit your CPD record with supporting documentation on Moodle and complete the 6 assessment questions

Your CPD is usually due by 11:59pm on the Friday of Week 3 of your final semester.  Please note that an amended deadline of 11:59pm on Friday 25th September will apply for Semester 2, 2020.

You will find all the details about completing each step in the webpages below:

If you still have questions please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions and Where to get help page.

All students are also invited to attend CPD Drop-in sessions.

These sessions are held in Week 6 of each semester and the dates and times advertised to students via email and the CPD webpage. Academic and administrative staff, Learning Skills Advisers and Student Futures staff will be available to answer your questions about how to use Student Futures, your assessment piece, assist you in developing skills to write your reflections, and answer any other queries you may have about your CPD journey.

There will be severe penalties for anyone caught falsifying claims on their CPD. Failure to supply accurate and honest details about the activities you have attended, the hours you spent at those activities, the skills you have developed, the experiences you were exposed to, or accurate contact details and supporting documentation for verification purposes, would put your graduation in jeopardy if you were suspended or excluded from the university. Monash University’s policy on Academic Integrity applies in each of those instances, and for all CPD submissions. Furthermore, as a future Engineer, you should be upholding the Engineers Australia Stage 1 competency of ethical conduct and personal accountability.
