About Young Engineers Victoria
Young Engineers Australia (YEA) is a group within Engineers Australia, representing the 45,000 student and professional members under the age of 35 nationally.
We are the voice for young engineers and are committed to facilitating academic, personal and professional development for our members, easing the transition from being a student to becoming a professional young engineer.
The Victoria Division of YEA (YEA-V) includes students, associates, technologists, graduates and professionals from all engineering disciplines. The Victoria Committee organises various activities for members including panel sessions and seminars on topics relevant to young engineers, and social events to network with fellow young engineers.
The Victorian Young Engineers Committee consists of the Chair, Vice Chair, National Representative, Secretary and seven General Committee Members. Elections of office-bearers are typically held in November and advertised on the Engineers Australia website. The elections are open to all Young Engineers with an active Engineers Australia membership and require a quick speech to the audience by each nominee followed by a vote.
