Monitored Professional Development Scheme (MPDS)

MPDS is an accredited company scheme, which follows an agreed structured programme, which can facilitate developing engineers in reaching the competence requirements for professional registration.

Having an accredited MPDS will raise your organisation’s profile with graduate engineers and promote high standards of engineering.

How does it work?

We assess and accredit your company graduate scheme to ensure the right opportunities, monitoring and feedback are in place for developing engineers, and particularly graduates, to apply for CEng or IEng.

Engineers from within your organisation who are already professionally registered will mentor those working towards registration. This not only builds the relationship between professional engineers and graduates, it also allow those who have already undergone registration to keep up their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).


How can it help your business?

Engineering businesses benefit from having professionally registered engineers – EngTechs, IEng and CEng. MPDS is an efficient way of supporting your engineers since it’s based on your existing training and development strategy. There is ongoing support from our business development team – including workshops, presentations, individual feedback sessions and interview preparation. So applicants via MPDS have a very high success rate at professional review interviews, so it is good for the company and the engineers.
