One year ago Engineers Australia sent out the first edition of Engineering News, your essential guide to the latest news, events and resources from the engineering profession. 

Engineering News was created to be your go-to resource for engineering updates from across the country. Every edition since has held essential reading on the latest developments for the profession, advocacy initiatives at Engineers Australia, and local events and professional development opportunities.  

Throughout the year we’ve been able to update you on changes to registration in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, we have connected volunteer engineers to the organisations helping to rebuild towns following devastating floods. And we have promoted our work with government pushing for better engineering outcomes for climate change, energy developments, infrastructure, STEM, skills and more.  

Below we look at some of our most impactful and popular stories. 

Engineering News will continue to land in your inbox every Tuesday morning and we welcome your feedback and content ideas for future editions.
