Pitch For A Better Nation
Policies to influence the future
Engineers Australia is a leader in public policy thinking. Our work lends an engineering perspective to the big issues and acts to inform government, media, members, industry and the public at large on new approaches to shape a sustainable world.
Through our policy reports we aim to foster public discussion on key issues in the engineering sector in Australia. Here you can find our key policies that highlight our plans, research and recommendations.
Engineers Make Things Happen
The need for an engineering pipeline strategy
Today we can see there is currently enough engineers to sustain a low-growth economy, with just enough school students entering the engineering pipeline.
We’ve also created a helpful infographic to explain some of the challenges we face in developing Australia’s engineering capabilities.
The Future of Australian Electricity Generation
Our new report calls for a national transition plan for the Australia's electricity sector as a matter of urgency.
Without a plan, the next generation of electricity will be either very dirty, very expensive or very unreliable.
State of the Profession 2017
Our latest addition of the State of the Engineering Industry report.
We present an overarching vision for Australia to grow as a prosperous nation and maintain a high standard of living. Australia's future depends on a skilled workforce, a considered energy policy, improved infrastructure, and a strong defence industry policy.
