What is the process for Engineers Australia to assess my qualification?

Engineers In Australia one of the relevant industry bodies is Engineers Australia. If you wish to have your qualifications assessed by them the following options are available:

1. If you need an assessment to gain eligibility for a Skilled Migrant visa, the following link will guide you through the process: https://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/For-Migrants/Migration-Skills-Assessment/MSA-StepByStep-Guide

2. If you wish to become a member of Engineers Australia you will need to have your eligibility assessed (Stage 1 assessment): https://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/Membership/Assessment-Of-Qualifications-And-Competencies

After acquiring our Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation), Engineers Australia will require the following if you would like them to assess you:
•    All academic documents
•    ID
•    CV/resume
•    Employment references and associated documents
•    Three essays/reports detailing three work projects completed during your career or during your studies.
(The links above contain instructions for writing the essays/reports.)

For general information about visas, points-based visas and SkillSelect the website for the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) will be of assistance:
https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/Skil.

*Note that the process is quite similar for both streams of assessment mentioned above. Furthermore, the standards of competencies to be assessed against are identical.

Professional Accreditation – do you need it?

In most countries there are two forms of accreditation for engineering qualifications - national accreditation/recognition by the Government, and professional recognition by an Engineering society or association.

In Australia, national accreditation of higher education qualifications is undertaken by the Australian Government regulator; “TEQSA” (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency) – by Law, TEQSA are absolutely critical to any higher education being recognised.

The other form of accreditation is ‘professional accreditation’ though engineering societies such as; Engineers Australia or Professionals Australia. This professional recognition may help in obtaining employment, although an employer's requirement for this seems not at the levels it used to be - generally because the type of degree being studied, one's actual experience and past training are far more influential with potential employers.
Few engineering Master, and no PhD, degrees are accredited by Engineers Australia. Remember, if a qualification is not accredited by Engineers Australia, you can still apply for professional recognition by Engineers Australia on an individual, case-by-case basis.We are proud that we already have two Advanced Diplomas accredited by Engineers Australia, and are continuing to work with Engineers Australia to achieve accreditation on our Master and Bachelor degrees as soon as possible.

It should be noted that whilst confident, EIT cannot guarantee or commit to when (and if) we will receive accreditation from Engineers Australia for any of our other qualifications.
