Lassonde Professional Development (LPD) offers unique, blended, online and experiential courses, designed to meet the professional development needs and interests of technologists and engineers. LPD is an integral part of the Lassonde School of Engineering at York University, committed to implementing Lassonde’s vision of providing ‘lifelong learning’ opportunities to engineers and those with a passion for technology.

LPD currently offers traditional executive management courses (i.e. Quality Management and Project Management) in conjunction with York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC), and technology focussed courses (i.e. Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence) relying on Lassonde faculty and partners. LPD is also developing a series of innovation management courses (i.e. Design Thinking and Creative Problem Solving), in partnership with SEEC’s Centre of Excellence in Applied Innovation Management, and the International Association of Innovation Professionals (IAOIP). We will continue to add courses based on the needs of our community.

LPD courses are characterized by high professional standards, expert instructors and immersive learning environments, where participants build a community where they learn from and interact with each other (before, during and after the course). Each course includes insights from global thought leaders, a summative assignment, and access to experts. Participants who complete each course, not only receive a certificate,but have the option of completing the appropriate professional exam. Each course is also designed to align with industry requirements for continuing professional development.
