APEC Engineer Register

The APEC Engineer Register is an initiative of the Commonwealth Department of Education Science and Training (formerly DETYA) and Engineers Australia to facilitate cross-border mobility for professional engineers in the APEC Region.

  1. Successful completion of an Engineers Australia accredited or recognised undergraduate engineering course
  2. Assessment by Engineers Australia as eligible for independent practice
  3. A minimum of seven years practical experience since graduation
  4. At least two years in responsible charge of significant engineering work
  5. Maintenance of continuing professional development at a satisfactory level
