Clean energy workforce capacity study
The Australian Government has commissioned Jobs and Skills Australia (JSA) to undertake a capacity study on the workforce needs for Australia's transition to a clean energy economy. JSA is identifying the pathways to develop the required skills and training, the contribution of the migration program and how opportunities are shared across regions and incorporate diversity. Our submission draws on the work we have done in strengthening the engineering workforce in Australia, women in engineering and reducing the barriers for migrant engineers.
Pathway to diversity in STEM review dialogue starter
Engineers Australia calls for diversity and inclusion efforts driven by commitment from organisational leaders and support from government.
Decarbonising infrastructure: Engineers Australia submission to Infrastructure Victoria
Engineers Australia recommends Infrastructure Victoria looks for consistency in collaboration with other Infrastructure bodies, and that they review Infrastructure Australia’s 2022 Replacement Materials report which shines a light on opportunities to use recycled materials in road infrastructure.
University sector review panel discussion paper WA
Engineers Australia believes there is an opportunity for significant benefit through increased collaboration between university and industry.
ANZSCO maintenance consultation submission
Engineers Australia gives advice on the term 'engineer' stating it should be limited to occupations which are underpinned by an engineering qualification accredited against international standards.
Fuel efficiency standard submission
The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communication and the Arts has conducted a consultation on the key elements of an Australian Fuel Efficiency Standard. This is an important initiative to cut costs and reduce the carbon pollution from Australia’s cars and light commercial vehicles. This consultation builds on the work done in developing the National Electric Vehicle Strategy to which Engineers Australia also made a submission.
Developing Australia's science priority
Engineers Australia's response to the federal government's statement Developing Australia’s Science and Research Priorities and National Science – a National Conversation Starter. We outline a brief summary of the most important challenges in engineering for Australia.
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.
Submission to the Australian Universities Accord
Engineers Australia's submission to the Australian Universities Accord, Aligning education with Australia's national interests, highlights the importance of engineers in our current and future workforce. We outline the significance of higher education in developing engineers to support Australia's sovereign capability and prosperity.
2023–2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy
Securing Australian cyber space and building a robust and resilient cyber ecosystem will require a comprehensive, agile, and inclusive strategy. Engineers Australia’s submission offers the view of its expert members on what the Government could do to achieve the goal of securing our nation’s cyber ecosystem and shift the dial to move cyber security front of mind.
