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 three series: the YEA CPD Series, YEA Tech Talk Series and the YEA Collaboration 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.

YEA Collaboration Series

The YEA Collaboration Series has been created to provide young engineers with insights into how they can effectively interact with other professions within the scope of their day-to-day roles.

It is designed to provide practical tips, reference points and takeaways that can be used to help facilitate more constructive communication and interaction.
