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.
