NUTECH as Professional Engineering Body (PEB)

Introduction to CPD (Continuing Professional Development)

In a rapidly changing world where legislative, social and economic developments directly affect the environment in which we live and work, and where technological advancements provide radically different ways of working, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) provides a means whereby we can keep abreast of these changes, broaden our skills and be more effective in our professional work. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is the means by which members of professional bodies maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge and skills for developing personal qualities required in their professional lives. CPD framework of Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) sets parameters through a number of developmental activities which are as follows:
Short courses, trainings, workshops, seminars and etc. for the ultimate benefits of engineers in their career development.

Importance of CPD for an Engineer

Under CPD framework, the engineers (both PEs and REs) are required to learn innovative and soft skills to be more effective in a playing productive role towards nation building. At the same time it stipulates requirements for renewal of PEC registration as well as for elevation from Registered Engineer (RE) to Professional Engineer (PE) and then International Professional Engineer (Int PE). PEC is therefore working through various means and options taking advantage of latest IT and communication tools to facilitate the engineers. Under New Vision of CPD, specialized job oriented and global certification courses are being introduced to enhance employability and on-job performance. For wider coverage and remote outreach; webinars, online courses and video-conferencing facilities have been integrated. PEC itself and through its registered Professional Engineering Bodies, regularly conducts short course, trainings and seminars to facilitate the engineers in fulfilling the CPD requirements. CPD activities imparted by well-recognized and Chartered Institutions/Organizations are also acceptable subject to valid documents and verification.

NUTECH as Professional Engineering Body (PEB)

Professional institutions, CPD academies, engineering universities or colleges and private institutions, registered by the Council may impart CPD activities. All these institutions, associations and other bodies shall be known as Professional Engineering Bodies (PEBs). The Engineering Professional Development Committee (EPDC) of PEC administers the professional development activities according to specified criteria and guidelines laid down by the Council.

NUTECH has been approved and registered as a Professional Engineering Body (PEB) by Pakistan Engineering Council to conduct CPD activities.
