Professional Year in Engineering

An experience that will shape your life and engineering career.

As a migrant, the ability to experience the Australian workplace before starting with your chosen employer is invaluable. Engineering Education Australia's Professional Year in Engineering course will teach you all you need to know about working in Australia and give you a well-respected Australian resume.

As the only work-readiness program for engineers recognised by the Australian Government, you can even apply for five migration points upon completion.

Engineering experience and networks

The Professional Year in Engineering course is a comprehensive program that will prepare you to work as an engineer in Australia. It lasts for 44 weeks, giving you time to learn about the expectations of employers, begin building your network, and create a plan for career success.

The first 32 weeks consist of online study and classroom workshops, followed by 12 weeks of work placement at a professional organisation. During this time you will develop a thorough understanding of our work conditions, health and safety requirements, and other important aspects of working as an engineer in Australia.

Qualifying engineers and visa types

If you have graduated from an accredited course in Australia or at an officially recognised overseas institution, you could qualify for the Professional Year in Engineering course. This course is open to holders of various visa types. Before applying, we recommend you contact a migration agent or visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.

Applicants must have completed a successful Migration Skills Assessment with Engineers Australia to be eligible for entry into the program.
