Urban Transport Systems Report (August 2023)
This paper has been developed by Engineers Australia’s Transport Australia Society (TAs) to provide expert advice to governments, policy makers and other stakeholders with a role in policy, planning, operating and delivery of Australia’s urban transport systems.
Responsible AI in Australia, an engineering perspective
Engineers Australia’s submission to the Safe and Responsible AI in Australia discussion paper.
Fundamentals of risk management for insurance purposes
A guide for engineering sole traders and small business engineering enterprises.
Victoria State Infrastructure Strategy Update
In this submission, Engineers Australia provides feedback to Infrastructure Victoria in response to the State Infrastructure Strategy Update. Engineers Australia broadly supports the principles and objectives defined in the Strategy and has provided responses and advice.
Guide for design engineers and building certifiers
This guide takes an in-principle approach, laying out best practice in terms of communication, problem solving, record keeping and teamwork, which design engineers and building certifiers will find helpful.
Managing building defects: roles, responsibilities and collaboration among owners, strata managers and engineers
This document is intended to provide high-level guidance on the obligations, responsibilities, and areas of expertise of owners, strata managers and engineers over the lifecycle of a building.
Submission to inquiry into developing advanced manufacturing in Australia
Developing Australia’s domestic capability in digital technologies is a must. Engineers Australia calls for government to look at the skills and resource requirements needed to upskill or reskill the workforce to achieve advanced manufacturing capability.
The future of transport discussion paper
With contributions from future of transport working group members this paper discusses pathways to a sustainable, decarbonised transport network including looking at transport though a systems view and enabling greater collaboration for project planning and funding.
Engineers Australia's Budget submission 2023
Engineers Australia advocates for skills, nationally consistent registration, engineering led climate action, a reliable energy transition and support for innovation in the 2023 Federal Budget.
Strengthening the engineering workforce in Australia
Women in engineering
Identifying avenues for increasing female participation in engineering, by understanding the motivators and barriers around entry and progression.
Commercialisation of engineering innovation
Despite having one of the world’s most educated and wealthy populations, Australia remains a chronic underperformer when it comes to the commercialisation of engineering innovation.
Enhancing productivity in infrastructure delivery
This document provides recommendations for implementation by Australian governments, in collaboration with industry and academia, to increase productivity in the infrastructure sector and to determine how engineers can best contribute to these aspirations.
Discussion paper: integrating DER in the grid
This discussion paper is intended to stimulate a conversation about what is possible for DER integration, and how Engineers Australia should engage with it.
Barriers to employment for migrant engineers
Overseas-born engineers make up over 58 per cent of Australia’s engineering workforce but are significantly more likely than their Australian-born counterparts to be unemployed. To find out why and identify how to overcome the barriers to employment these engineers face, Engineers Australia commissioned research to identify potential barriers to employment.
Barriers to participation in engineering and the value of interventions to improve diversity
Despite considerable effort, there is still much to be done to improve girls’ participation in STEM education and careers. The Engineering for Australia Taskforce has appreciated the need to act based on four issues they have identified. This paper reviews the international research literature that not only focuses on barriers to girls’ participation in engineering, but more importantly focuses on the value of interventions to improve diverse participation in engineering.
