Sustaining Successful Continuing Engineering Education Professional Education Programs by Systematic Assessment of the Key Performance ResultsExcellent continuing professional development programs comprehensively measure its keyperformance results with respect to several elements: academic achievements, financial resultsand quality of the programs offered. Additionally, the customer and people feedback need to becritically reviewed. Also, societal impacts cannot be ignored. Based on the InternationalAssociation for Continuing Engineering Education Quality Program Self-Assessment Model,an engineering and interdisciplinary professional education unit in a national public researchuniversity has developed a systematic process for self-assessment, quality management andfinancial sustainment, and charted a path for achieving excellence. This paper will focus on thefollowing parameters: people, programs and processes, and will show the approach that thisunit has taken to define the organizational leadership, implement the strategies and itsadherence to the University and Continuing Education Division policies. Special emphasis willbe given on the development, management and financial sustainment of international shortcourses, online engineering technology programs, engineering management certificates andengineering conferences, and a model for sharing the financial success with the partners willalso be presented. The unit has a successful global presence; therefore, the key issuesassociated with the self-assessment as well as clients’ evaluations of continuing engineeringeducation units, as experienced in international programming, will be discussed.
