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 undergraduate Engineering students at Monash Clayton. It’s an opportunity to engage in business and engineering-related activities and to grow your professional networks and contacts.

CPD is an important part of your engineering career. It gives you an insight into the life of an engineer as you network, explore and gain on-the-job training.

As a Monash Engineering graduate, you leave prepared for leadership, success and – most importantly – life. The harder you work at your CPD, the more employable you’ll be when you graduate.

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.
