Engineers Australia

Engineers Australia is the largest and most diverse professional body for engineers in Australia. If you wish to work as an Engineer in Australia and apply for the Employer Nomination Scheme or any Skilled Visa, your application will need to include a dedicated skills assessment to be provided by the Engineers Australia institution.

The occupational categories recognised by Engineers Australia are:

  • Professional Engineer
    • Academic qualification required: Australian four year Bachelor of Engineering degree following twelve years of schooling, or overseas equivalent.
      Bachelor degree
  • Engineering Technologist
    • Academic qualification required: Australian three year Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree following twelve years of schooling, or overseas equivalent
  • Engineering Associate
    • Academic qualification required: Australian two year Advanced Diploma of engineering following twelve years of schooling, or overseas equivalent
  • Engineering Manager
    • Bachelor degree or higher qualification required
    • Must have a record of senior management over a period of five years or more
    • Letters of reference and organisational charts must be provided

As first step, Get Your Visa will work on a pre-assessment in order to evaluate your general, academic and professional situation before starting working on your skills assessment.

The skills assessment is a crucial document for your application visa and Get Your Visa will work for you to submit an exhaustive skills assessment to the Engineers Australia institution. We won’t submit it until we are sure that the chances for the skills assessment to be approved by Engineers Australia are high.

Engineers Australia FAQ

Do I need to complete the IELTS test?

Yes, you do unless you are from an exempt country. You will be required to provide evidence of your English competency and achieve a minimum of Band 6 in each of the 4 modules of Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking in either the general or academic modules of the IELTS test.

Should I include in the application the original copies of my overseas qualifications?

Absolutely not.  You will be asked to supply the copies of the original documents. If your qualifications are not in English, you will be required to get your documents translated into English. Get Your Visa can provide you with the NAATI translation service from any language into English.
