Global engineers

Stay connected to your peers and Australian industry — wherever your work takes you.

Taking your skills overseas

An engineering career can grant global mobility, allowing members of the engineering team to take their skills overseas and develop innovative solutions outside of Australia. Engineers Australia connects members seeking to work and live in other countries with opportunities and networks to assist in their efforts towards a modern, mobile lifestyle.

Recognition of your qualifications and achievements from Chartered Status and connections to international registers can help you migrate, join professional bodies in other countries and find employment. Our overseas chapters ensure our members have access to networking and peer support. Continued maintenance of your EA membership keeps you connected to your discipline and industry in Australia.

You have earned your mobility, and your skills bring you success and satisfaction wherever you go. Engineers Australia is here to support your journey, connect you to opportunities and provide a platform for advocacy to serve your goals.

Overseas Groups

Engineers Australia hosts several overseas chapters. Network with your fellow engineers and stay current with the Australian engineering community by joining a chapter when working abroad or living outside of Australia.
