Programme Overview

The CPD Diploma in Professional Engineering is a 12-month programme aimed at engineers with between three and six years experience who are committed to deepening their abilities as a professional.

This stand-alone Level 9 CPD Diploma programme, which is accredited by DIT, has been designed in collaboration with leading employers to specifically address gaps in knowledge, skills and behaviours across technology management, business acumen and engineering execution. The programme is designed for those who are committed to gaining the higher-order skills and abilities required to operate in new or unfamiliar contexts, such as handling complexity, and are linked to employment as a senior professional or manager with responsibility for the work output of teams. 

Programme Structure

The CPD Diploma programme is delivered on a part-time basis involving classroom sessions, project work, assignments, research and workplace mentoring. The major building blocks en route to high-level engineering competence are covered across five core modules over a 12-month period.

These five core modules are delivered via 11 module components (dates listed below) which are supplemented with pre and post component assignments. The programme is rounded out by the inclusion of a final team project (explained in more detail below) that spans the duration of the programme. 

Note: All module components run from 9am-5pm and will take place in Engineers Ireland, 22 Clyde Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. These dates are provisional and will be confirmed in December 2017.

Final Project

The CPD Diploma Final Project involves teams of participants choosing a real-world challenge from one of their organisations and presenting a project solution/recommendation based on team research and analysis.

This team project develops the skills of research and enquiry in order to enable learners to generate, evaluate and select ideas which demonstrate the role of a professional engineer in business and strategy formulation. Each project team will be have an industry expert assigned to their project who will act as a supervisor to guide each team through the process.

The module component concludes with an opportunity for each group to present a business case for their project solution/recommendation in December 2017 to a panel of personnel from Engineers Ireland, DIT and selected industry experts.

WHAT EMPLOYERS SAY

  • “The CPD Certificate and CPD Diploma in Professional Engineering play an important part in building on an engineering education and assimilating young graduates into the work phase of their careers and onwards towards Chartered Engineer status. Many practical and personal skills are delivered by expert tutors and through team assignments with demonstrated workplace application. This ensures participants can make an early impact in their chosen field, career and organisation.” Michael Loughnane MIEI, Manager, Senior Leadership Development, Group People & Sustainability, ESB

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY

  • “I have completed both the CPD Certificate and CPD Diploma in Professional Engineering and I would highly recommend both programmes to engineering graduates. The CPD Certificate helped my transition from college to the world of work and gave me a deeper understanding of the required approach and behaviours of a new recruit designed in tandem to meet my employer’s needs. The CPD Diploma made me realise that the academic education given in college was just the beginning, and that career-relevant continuing professional education is critical for career development." Bernadette McManamon MIEI, Junior Civil Engineer, Corrib Gas Project
