Engineers Australia's calendar of activity for young engineers contains two pieces of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) content each month created to support, develop and grow early career engineers. The calendar is made up of two series: the YEA CPD Series and YEA Tech Talk Series. 

YEA CPD Series

The Young Engineers CPD series has been put together exclusively by young engineers for young engineers and is designed to support you on your career journey into the professional world.

The series aims to provide educational content that bridges the gap between what you learn at university and what you need to know in the workplace by delivering learning opportunities that you can practically apply on the job.

YEA Tech Talk Series

The Young Engineers Tech Talk Series will regularly profile technology platforms, programs and solutions, or topics of a technical nature, and will be pitched specifically at early career engineers.

Digital collaboration tool for Architecture, Engineering & Construction industries

In this session we look at the Bluebeam REVU software and how it is utilized in projects as a collaboration tool using the PDF file format. By using REVU the PDF file format now becomes the master drawing file and eliminates the need for data exchange between different CAD packages.

Participants will learn about:

  • How REVU can be used within the Design Office for Mark-ups and Revision Control.
  • How REVU can be used to do Quantity Take-offs from PDF files.
  • How REVU can be used as an As-Built Checking Tool.

Tech Talk with CAD Group

Automated to Advanced Clash Detection: A Step Towards Delivering Fully Coordinated Construction Models

BIM360 Model Coordination allows automated clash detection on BIM Data hosted on BIM 360. It allows the BIM/VDC Manager to have complete control over how to run automated clashes. For Projects requiring ISO 19650 compliance, it also allows the onus to be on the discipline lead to deliver the models ready for automated clash detection.

Participants will learn:

  • Activate the BIM 360 Model Coordination Service for Automated Clash Detection
  • Create Coordination Spaces for ISO 19650 Compliant projects
  • Create Issues using Clashes
  • Action and Resolve Clash Issues

Principles of Learning

Believe it or not, most human beings aren’t great at learning.  Despite our best intentions, we often undertake strategies that are either inefficient or ineffective.  During this session, we will explore several principles of human learning that will help you move quicker and easier through the learning process.  This, in turn, will help you move faster than others when tackling a new job, a new position, or a new project.

  • How to survive meetings and seminars.
  • What is the one key to deep, lasting, durable memories?

What is the single biggest impediment to learning (hint: it’s something nearly everyone does)?

Tech Talk with Bentley Systems

As Road Authorities throughout ANZ begin to develop and embrace Digital Engineering processes and standards, the broader industry is expected to deliver on these requirements.
It is obvious, the industry is being pushed into this paradigm shift. However, the question needs to be asked: Is the industry ready?

This webinar will demonstrate the progress of Bentley Systems ongoing work to highlight Authoring Application and Digital Twin workflows.
