Frequently asked questions
How do I make a payment for my membership subscription renewal?
For your convenience, there are several different payment methods available, which are all listed on the right hand side of this page and also on the reverse side of your Subscription Renewal Notice.
If you would like to pay online, login to the website and click on the Make a Payment icon. Please note that you cannot make any changes to your subscription if you are paying online.
Why do I have an opening balance?
Members may find an opening balance on their subscription renewal notice. This is generally due to unpaid subscription fees from previous years which have been carried over to the new invoice period.
How do I make amendments to my invoice?
If you would like to amend your invoice in any way (e.g. add a publication or Technical Society membership), please fill out the details in the space provided on the reverse side of your renewals notice and return with your payment slip; if you require assistance, please contact Member Services.

When should I upgrade?

If you are a Student or Graduate member:
You can request for a change of College by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief explanation as to the reason of your request.
If you are at the grade of Member or Fellow but not Chartered:
Please send us a copy of your CV to email@example.com requesting for a change of College. Your CV should clearly indicate that you are practising in the engineering area which belongs to the requested College.
If you are a Chartered Member:
You need to apply for a change of College or an additional College Membership by sending us a completed form, Application for College Membership (PDF - 270kb), together with supporting documents as instructed in this form.
Chartered Members can claim to be a competent and current practitioner in relevant areas related to any Colleges of which they are a member. College membership may make them eligible for registration on NPER in that area. Therefore Chartered Members need to demonstrate their Stage 2 Competencies in the College(s) they are seeking by providing a statement of experience and CPD records.
The next CPD and Practice Review date of Chartered Members who obtained an additional College membership or an additional Area of Practice (National Registration) will still be five years from the admission date of their original College(s) or the previous Review completion date.
Expected study completion date
It is important that you advise us of your new expected study completion date if it has changed. Once the expected study completion date that we have recorded from your initial application passes, your membership will automatically be changed to that of a fee-paying Student member. If you need to update your expected study completion, you can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update your address and contact details
If you move to another place, please advise us so that we can update your details. This way you can continuously receive all the membership benefits and important communication from Engineers Australia without interruption.
Advise us your non university email address
Please advise Engineers Australia of your non university email address. This will ensure that you receive important notices electronically even after you graduate and when you travel around.
Readmission to Student membership
If your Student membership lapsed while you are still studying an undergraduate program and you wish to reinstate it, please complete a hard copy application form for Student membership and send it to us by post. Readmission to Student membership cannot be processed via online application.
