Bay of Plenty and Waikato YGP Symposium

The first Bay of Plenty & Waikato Young Geotechnical Professionals’ Symposium is happening on Thursday 27 February 2020.

For further details please refer to the flyer here.

Due date for submissions is Friday 24 January 2020

To register you need to provide a 100 to 200 word summary of a geotechnical topic which you can commit to making a 10 minute presentation on at the event. The topic should be something that your peers can learn from. This could be:

  1. A project in which you have learnt something
  2. An original investigation or examination of a topic
  3. A resource or paper you find valuable for your work
  4. An item of research
  5. Other – it just needs to be something geotechnically relevant that others can learn from.

The presentation should be at your level. We want to hear from graduates as well as those who are almost no longer “young”!

No written paper is required. There will be a short question time after each presentation.

Please register your interest by submitting your presentation summary to bopygp@gmail.com

Chartered Professional Engineer (Geotechnical) – Body of Knowledge and Skills

(Geotechnical) (CPEng(Geotechnical)) is expected to have in order to competently investigate, design and monitor the construction of geotechnical works in New Zealand. This Body of Knowledge and Skills (BOKS) is intended to complement and inform the Chartered Professional Engineer assessment process.

The purpose of the BOKS is to:

  • Define the prerequisite skills and knowledge that are required of a CPEng(Geotechnical)
  • Provide a framework for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and postgraduate training.

The BOKS is not intended to be a competence assessment framework. However, it is expected that the BOKS will inform the competence assessment process used by the Registration Authority to assess a CPEng(Geotechnical).

The title ‘CPEng(Geotechnical)’ is not proposed by NZGS or the Registration Authority. It is simply used as a convenient descriptor in this document.
