Policy, Media & Statistics

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.



The newsroom includes media releases, opinion pieces and resources for journalists.
Engineers Australia statements articulating our position on issues of interest, policy or matters affecting the engineering profession.

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