Engineering Technical Society membership

Many of Engineers Australia's associated technical societies offer discounted rates for students. Technical societies are a fantastic way to network within your industry and related industries. For example, an electrical engineering student interested in rail and train transport could join the Railway Technical Society of Australasia or the Transport Australia society.

Find engineers aligned to your interests and enrich your understanding of what your future holds by joining a Technical Society. With reduced rates for students, it's a worthwhile and rewarding step towards your life as a professional.
