Engineers are required to maintain currency in their respective fields (through continuous professional development). In Australia, engineering students are expected to progress towards Engineers Australia’s (EA) Stage 1 competencies throughout the course of their accredited engineering studies. Similarly, professional frameworks are well established internationally and recognised as key guide for the development of engineers in the workforce (Leslie, 2016). Throughout their professional careers, engineers are required to undergo formal, informal, and non-formal learning. The process of maintaining these records and mapping them to competency standards is rigorous and time consuming. This paper examines how this process is undertaken and investigate how this process can be automated to facilitate the alignment between education and industry needs.
