Engineers Australia Queensland Division – Cairns regional group

Serving our members and the engineering profession in the Cairns region.

About the Cairns regional group

The Regional Groups throughout Queensland perform an important function in Engineers Australia's strategic role to provide state-wide advocacy, support and professional development opportunities for our members.

The Cairns Regional Group offers a comprehensive calendar of events and programs for local engineers including professional development opportunities, networking and social activities plus raising awareness of Engineering as a career. These opportunities and activities aim to be relevant, interesting, thought provoking and inexpensive for regional engineers across all disciplines of engineering.
