The CPD Certificate in Professional Engineering for graduates, is specifically designed, in partnership with leading employers, to enable graduates to understand and gain the competences and professional standards expected of them.

Successful participants receive a certificate from Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), which is worth 5 ECTS credits at Level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).

The methodologies and structure of the programme have been chosen to facilitate the thinking and behaviours towards graduates becoming ‘T Shaped engineers’ for their employers – combining their depth level of engineering knowledge with a breadth of knowledge across many non-technical skills.

The online delivery of this programme allows graduates to attend from various locations within the country and abroad and join live/interactive virtual training modules. These modules comprise of: The Essential Skills of a Professional; Time Management & Organisational Skills; Communication & Presentation Skills; An Introduction to Project Management; Innovations in Excel and Technical Report Writing Skills.

Our fist Autumn 2022 Programme is now SOLD OUT. Contact the Programme Coordinator Marina Tiribelli: to inquire about other start dates in late September and early November.
