Membership through MRA

A guide to the application process, requirements and benefits for those applying through a Mutual Recognition Agreement.

Joining via a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA)

Engineers Australia has established mutual recognition agreements with Institutions around the world through which a member of such a body, on application, will be accorded an equivalent level of membership in Engineers Australia and vice versa. In some cases, the agreements cover more than one grade of membership and occupational category.

Please note: As a condition under the agreement, formal academic qualifications must be acceptable to both bodies in accordance with the Washington, Sydney or Dublin Accords. Where academic qualifications are not acceptable under this agreement the applicant may be asked to submit a Competency Demonstration Report for assessment.

Apply for Membership via a Mutual Recognition Agreement now! When you join in July you will save up to $90 with the admin fee waiver offer.
