Engineers Australia is the heart of the engineering industry throughout the Australasian region. The organisation has a 100-year history as the peak body representing engineers.

The prestigious institution offers more than just membership. Its professional development and highly regarded Chartered credential is an international mark of excellence.

In 2021 the majority of oil and gas and renewables companies and contractors require Chartered engineers to ensure quality and standards across their operations.

Earning a Chartered status means engineers within your organisation will be recognised as the professionals they are with global recognition.

For professionals working in the space the Chartered credential also offers career progression in senior or consultive roles. It's a competitive edge and shows an individual's commitment to the highest professional standards.

Chartered engineers are peer-assessed against industry-recognised standards and there are several pathways to achieving chartered status.

Charted certification is just one of the many roles Engineers Australia plays in the Australian energy sector.

Engineers Australia also regularly publishes extensive research and journals for industry, works with government bodies, the media, and industry as well as running events. It also upholds professional standards across engineer careers from students to honorary fellows.
