Compilation of a Competency Demonstration Report (CDR) describing your engineering practice.
The purpose of the CDR is to demonstrate how you have applied your engineering knowledge and skills;
The major assessable features of the CDR are narratives written in English of three career episodes and a Summary Statement of the competency elements followed by Identification of Continuing Professional Development
You are required to present an account of your engineering activities on each of three separate career episodes. A career episode is a documented component of your engineering education and/or work experience which captures a particular period or distinct aspect of your engineering activity. It needs to clearly demonstrate the application of engineering knowledge and skills in the nominated occupation, not the acquisition of knowledge.
It may use material from:
• an engineering task undertaken as part of your educational program;
• a project you have worked on or are currently working on;
• a specific position that you occupied or currently occupy (in this case, the career episode must comprise
more than a mere duty statement);
• a particular engineering problem that you were required to solve.
Do not present large amounts of technical material. It is recommended that each narrative be a minimum of about 1000 words and a maximum of about 2000 words.
Each career episode must clearly demonstrate the application of engineering knowledge and skills in the engineering discipline. That is, state "what you did" and describe "how you did it", with emphasis on your own personal actions, eg "I designed...", "I investigated...". Excessive technical detail (diagrams, photos, calculations, tables) are not required. Each career episode should emphasize any engineering problems identified and any particular problem solving techniques used by you. The purpose of this is to assess the nature of the contribution which you may have made to the engineering project or task - particularly if that contribution was of a novel nature or critical to the implementation of the task/project.
Please note that it is not sufficient to merely describe work in which you were involved. Your own role in the work must be clearly described by you, and be identifiable in the assessment.
