Engineering Competency Model

The Engineering Leadership Institute 
is built around the
Engineering Competency Model


The Engineering Leadership Institute's Success Enabling Skills™ Performance Certification System is built around the Engineering Competency Model (ECM).The ECM was originated through a partnership between the US Department of Labor Education and Training Administration and the American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES). The curriculum was selected by the Engineering Leadership Institute because it:

  • Defines essential skill competencies to enter, advance, and succeed in the Engineering industry

  • Provides a model to identify gaps in skill competencies and performance

  • Utilizes the Competency Based Education (CBE) model

  • Provides resources for career exploration and guidance
