Dr Steve Mackay and Ms Edwina Ross met with Engineers Australia on the morning of the 28th March. Emmanuelle Wintergerst, their National Manager for Skills Assessment, outlined the process for those wishing to work and reside in Australia. It is summarised here: To have your qualifications assessed by Engineers Australia, 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.) *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. 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/Skill
