Vision 2020+3: Our Strategy for 2020-2023

Why we exist

Our purpose is to advance the science and practice of engineering for the benefit of the community.

Engineers Australia shapes the future of Australia – creating happy, healthy, prosperous and sustainable communities.

What we do

Over 2,000 volunteers and 300 staff work together to provide a wealth of valuable services to members, the profession and the community, including:

  • Raising the profile and understanding of engineering and its impact on society
  • Providing professional development for engineers
  • Awarding Chartered, NER and EngExec credentials to those who meet the standards
  • Delivering impartial, evidence-based advice to inform government policy
  • Accrediting engineering education to ensure that it is world-class and prepares students for work
  • Assessing the skills of migrants applying to work in Australia
  • Inspiring school students to become the next generation of engineers

Three areas of influence; Six Strategic Shifts

Our strategy sets EA up to deliver on our purpose by creating six shifts across three areas of influence: the profession, the membership and the organisation.

Strategy 2020-2023

What value will members and customers see?
