Engineers Australia is a professional body that represents engineers in Australia, providing a national forum for the advancement of the profession while fostering the professional development of its members.

With more than 90,000 members embracing all engineering disciplines, Engineers Australia suggests that it is the largest and most diverse professional body for engineers across the country. Chartered engineers that are members are regarded as trusted professionals not only in Australia, but also worldwide.

Engineers Australia states that it seeks to:
  • advance the science and practice of engineering
  • cultivate lifelong learning by its members
  • promote the contribution of the profession as widely as possible
  • champion professional and ethical conduct
  • welcome all those who wish to practise engineering
  • allow members' aspirations to flourish, and learn from their creativity and innovation
  • celebrate excellence in engineering outcomes
  • draw inspiration from its engineering heritage
  • sustain the integrity of the profession; and
  • take the lead in advocacy of the profession.
One of its core activities is to make its position known on policies, inquiries and other government initiatives. In this way, Engineers Australia can ensure that the views of practicing engineers are considered when governments develop policies.

Engineers Australia is also responsible for the accreditation of undergraduate engineering programs. Accreditation provides a means to ensure that academic institutions are consistently meeting national and international benchmarks.

Engineering graduates of an accredited program are assured membership with Engineers Australia at the relevant career grade, and enjoy reciprocal privileges by equivalent professional bodies overseas.

International recognition is offered by countries that are co-signatories to international agreements on joint recognition, including:
  • the USA
  • United Kingdom
  • Hong Kong (SAR)
  • New Zealand
  • Canada; and
  • South Africa.
