Survey of Working Environment and Engineering Careers 2012

Engineers Australia believes it is critical to better understand the issues influencing the retention of engineers in engineering and the impediments to increasing the number of women in engineering, as part of a longer term strategy to improve the domestic supply of engineers. To this end, in 2012 Engineers Australia undertook a comprehensive survey of its members to explore the working lives of engineers. The objective was to identify issues conducive to engineering careers and those that were not with a view to building the background necessary for a long term approach. This report documents the findings of the survey.
