  • completed an accredited or recognised Australian engineering qualification or 
  • passed an Engineers Australia membership competency assessment or migration skills assessment, and
  • have less than three years post-graduate work experience in the engineering industry.

Fees  

We know that when you’re starting out, it’s not always an easy choice to invest in your future. That’s why for the first three years of graduate membership we offer lower fees – for all the same great benefits. 

If you’ve recently graduated, you could also be eligible for free membership through to end June.
