Accredited engineering programs — what it means for you

There are a multitude of options available for those who want to study engineering. Secondary students planning to become engineer will have much to consider. What type of engineer to become, what industry to enter and, of course, which institution to attend.

Engineers Australia is the accreditation authority for tertiary institutions in Australia. This means we are responsible for providing course programs with a seal of approval that carries with it an assurance of high quality.

An accredited program is one that meets Australian and global benchmarks. Graduates of accredited programs are guaranteed membership with Engineers Australia. Engineering bodies in other countries that have agreements with Engineers Australia are also more easily accessed when your degree is from an accredited program.
