Young Engineers Chartered Survey Results

Over the past year Young Engineers Australia has engaged with Engineers Australia members and the wider engineering community under the age of 35 to understand what challenges they were facing in obtaining and maintaining Chartered accreditation and determine what value they place on being Chartered.

The primary objective was to gain as broad a participation in the Survey and Focus Groups from across the engineering sector as possible in order to draw upon the deep knowledge and insight into issues, which exists at all levels and functions across the sector, and more specifically:

  • determine general opinion trends towards Chartered accreditation of engineering professionals under the age of 35
  • understand motivations for obtaining Chartered accreditation or choosing not to
  • identify the level of support or encouragement offered by employers with attainment of Chartered accreditation
  • examine views on the actual accreditation process
  • recognise general views on compulsory engineering registration, similar to the RPEQ registration in Queensland
  • conduct an opinion poll on whether Engineers Australia members would support spending their fees on public awareness campaigns

A graphical summary of the survey results can be downloaded here.
