Engineers Australia's groups, Colleges and Technical Societies play an integral role in setting the professional standards and providing continuing professional development (CPD) for all members from the full range of engineering occupations and career stages.

As knowledge sharing platforms, these groups provide the opportunity for engineers to give back to, become involved in, and connect with their local engineering community.

Find out more about Engineers Australia's Communities and Groups that includes Colleges, Technical Societies, Special Interest Groups, National Committees Communities of Practice, Awards, Focus Lecture Series, Standards Australia, Publications.

Engineers Australia plays an important role in recognising and celebrating engineering excellence and the contribution engineering makes to our communities. Our Award Programs identify, recognise and reward outstanding achievement, eminence in the practice of engineering and conspicuous service to the profession.

Engineers Australia offers a range of national awards, medals and scholarships, which highlight contributions to various areas of engineering.

Engineers Australia Darwin office would like to thank our sponsor partners. Without the support of these organisations, we would not be able to provide a number of programs and events. These include the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (AEEA), Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events, Engineering Diversity Scholarship and STEM programs.

We ask all of our members to support those organisations who support them.
