Use these documents for Chartered assessment.
Areas of practice
Leadership and management
Leadership and management deals with business management or administrative functions in an engineering environment.
Mechanical engineering deals with the application of the principles of engineering and physics with the study of advanced materials for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.
Mechatronics engineering is multidisciplinary and deals with integrating electrical and mechanical systems. It can include a combination of robotics, electronics, computing, telecommunications, systems, control, product engineering, and electronics to create functional, smart products.
Naval architecture deals with the safe design and specification of marine vessels and structures. The naval architect can also be involved in the construction, repair, refit or operation of such marine vessels and structures.
Oil and Gas Pipeline Engineering
Oil and gas pipeline engineering deals with the efficient transport of fluids. This area of practice relates only to the transmission of petroleum and gas and related fluid pipelines.
Use these documents for NER or State registration assessment.
Areas of engineering
Structural engineering deals with the understanding, prediction, and calculation of the stability, strength and rigidity of built structures.
Competency assessments are used to ensure engineering professionals who want to work within Australia meet the benchmarked qualifications and competency standards to practise.
Engineers Australia uses two sets of competency standards per occupational category. Each one is used for a different purpose.
Entry to practice
Entry to practice assessments (sometimes called stage 1) are used to assess some membership applications and some migrant skills assessment applications.
If you need to complete an entry to practice competency assessment, you’ll be assessed against the entry to practice competencies for your occupational category.
Download the entry to practice competency assessment documents for:
- Professional engineers – includes summary statement: professional engineers
- Engineering technologists – includes summary statement: engineering technologists
- Engineering associates – includes summary statement: engineering associates
- Engineering manager – includes summary statement: engineering manager
If you want to apply for a Chartered or NER credential you’ll be assessed using an independent practice assessment (sometimes called stage 2). You’ll be assessed against the 16 elements of competency that are related to your occupational category. These sit across four core areas:
- Personal commitment.
- Obligation to community.
- Value in workplace.
- Technical proficiency.
