CEng Application for Registered Senior Engineers
PART (1) ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE & CPD
You need to submit
Preparing Your Engineering Experience Record (EER)
The Engineering Experience Record (EER) is a verified record of your engineering employment. It asks you to detail your engineering roles and responsibilities for the purpose of explaining these and having them verified.
The application for Chartered Status requires that the member has a minimum of seven years of verified equivalent full-time engineering experience .
The EER is a separate document from your CV. It is a verified record of your recent engineering employment. In the Role Description field, you need to provide a detailed description of the job roles you have held and your responsibilities and achievements for each role.
Preparing Your CPD Record
A key part of the application for Chartered Status and registration is currency of knowledge. The CPD Record is your record of Continuing Professional Development, made over the last three years of your engineering experience.
MPER Follows CPD system of Engineers Australia which has specific requirements for demonstrating adequate CPD for a Chartered Status and/or registration application. All participants must demonstrate at least 150 hours of CPD over the last three years.
Types of CPD
PART (2) Competency Demonstration Report for CEng
Engineering Competency Demonstration Report is to be presented by the appliants who do not have the academic qualifications in List 1 & 2.
Refer Page 13 to 19. Write the Engineering Competency Demonstration Report of
CPEng Application for Professional Engineers.
In addition to all evidences required for CEng, CPEng applicants will need to write Engineering Competency Claim (ECC).
The essence of writing an ECC is presenting convincing verifiable evidence of your competence, in the form of a narrative describing your actual experience in engineering activities over the past few years. Each ECC must be a minimum of 500 words, and a maximum of 700 words. Some things you should know before you start to write your ECCs are described below:
How we assess your Engineering Competency Claims
Your Engineering Competency Claims (ECCs) are the primary sources of evidence of your engineering competence. The evidence that you present in your ECCs will be tested by assessment and, ultimately, in a Professional Interview
Engineering Problems & Activities
Involve wide-ranging or conflicting technical, sociological, environmental and other requirements
Have no obvious solution and require abstract thinking and originality in analysis to formulate suitable models
Require the application of first principles
Involve infrequently encountered issues
Have complex or conflicting stakeholder requirements and consequences that involve diverse groups of stakeholders with widely varying needs
Can be dissected into component parts or sub-problems
Require the creation of successful, timely engineering solutions.
Involve the coordination of diverse resources (and for this purpose, resources include people, money, equipment, materials, information and technologies) in the timely delivery of outcomes
Require resolution of significant problems arising from interactions between wide-ranging or conflicting technical, sociological, environmental or other requirements
Involve creative use of engineering principles and knowledge, much of which is at, or informed by, the forefront of a practice area
Have significant consequences in a range of contexts, characterised by difficulty of prediction and mitigation
Can extend beyond previous experiences by applying first principles
Require the achievement of successful outcomes on time and on budget.
What you need to write in an Engineering Competency Claim (ECC)
You need to write
(1) PERSONAL COMMITMENT
You need to write:
how you deal with ethical issues when they arise
how you develop and define your areas of competence
how you display a personal sense of responsibility for your work
(2)OBLIGATION TO COMMUNITY
Community will change depending on the nature of the work you are doing. Sometimes it will be the client; sometimes the general public; sometimes your students; sometimes the regulatory authorities and sometimes it will be your employer. This unit of competence requires you to demonstrate:
how you delivered a safe and sustainable solutions
how you defined the community and considered the community benefit at various stages of engineering activities (within the context of your work)
how you identified and managed the risks associated with the engineering activities
how you incorporated legal and regulatory requirements into your solutions
(3) VALUE IN THE WORKPLACE
This unit of competency requires you to demonstrate:
how you collaborate and work with others
how you work within an organisation to provide value for stakeholders
how you initiate, plan, lead or manage and secure financial and other material resources to support engineering activities
how you apply your professional judgement
This unit of competency require you to demonstrate:
how you use advanced engineering science
how you make effective use of engineering knowledge provided by other people
how you analyse problems and how you develop creative and innovative solutions
how you evaluate the outcomes and impacts of engineering activities
The evidence from your ECCs is assessed, by MPER, to determine whether it provides a satisfactory basis for a Professional Interview by online chatting mode or by e-mail mode, where your claims to competence are validated. In looking at the evidence that you present in your ECCs, we will consider the following guidelines: authenticity, validity, reliability, currency, and sufficiency.
