Membership is a way of “giving back” to the profession, showing your pride in engineering and having your say on the profession’s future. Together, we can achieve more than we can alone –we can create tomorrow’s engineers by engaging with children and students and ensuring the engineering voice is heard within the community, media and government.

Engineers Australia actively encourages the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of members, offering access to a wide range of services and resources designed to assist you at every stage of your career. See more information here on our Grades and Occupational Categories.
