How to fill your Summary Statement (Element 1.1)

summary statement

Introduction: This is the first part of a set of guides on how to fill the Summary Statement document. This part of the CDR preparation is the most confusing for applicants, and in the same time the most crucial for the evaluators. CDRSample.com is attempting to enlighten you through easily understandable and comprehensive articles that explain each element in detail. The guides were created to “decode” Engineers Australia requirements while they also contain examples on how to fill each indicator for every one of the Summary Statement sixteen elements.

Section 1.1: “Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.”

This is the first element of the Summary Statement document and so filling it right holds special importance. Let’s take a look on what the first section concerns and what parts of your job experience you can populate it with.

For this element of competency, there is one indicator that needs to be filled and this is in regard to the generic engagement of engineering disciplines at a phenomenological level. This basically means that you can fill the indicator with tasks that showcase a fundamental engineering understanding through common practice skills applied to a broad range of systematic investigation, problem analysis and development of innovative solutions.

You can use Career Episode clauses that highlight adherence to generic engineering fundamentals. These clauses may be about the development of a solution to a problem, done through solid engineering conclusions based on analysis of data, or how you prevented an error from being realized by taking precautions that underlie fundamental engineering principles.

To make things clearer, when we talk about an understanding of “natural and physical sciences” we basically mean sciences like Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Physics etc, so the last two could apply to an engineer. The “engineering fundamentals” on the other side could be the Thermodynamics, the electrical circuit design fundamentals, the Newton’s laws etc.

Here are some indicative examples for filling the indicator:

1.) My conceptual understanding of Heat Transfer engineering in relation to oil plant safety, led me to the development of a modification on the piping network arrangement that would increase the efficiency and safety of operation of the processing unit.

2.) Knowing Ohm’s law imperatives in circuit design, I checked all the electrical schemes developed by the drafting team.

3.) I designed the heating, ventilation and air conditioning vents by utilizing my knowledge and experience in the field of the Fluid Mechanics.
