Policy and Media

One of Engineers Australia's core activities is to make its position known on policies, inquiries and other government initiatives. Such high level representation raises the profile of engineers and ensures that the views of practicing engineers are considered when governments develop policies. We use a range of methods to ensure our voice is heard.

To enquire about our advocacy activities, or contribute to submissions, please contact: policy@engineersaustralia.org.au




Engineers Australia draws upon the intellectual capital of the membership of Engineers Australia when drafting policy statements and developing submissions.
