Before migrating to Australia as a skilled migrant you need to have your skills assessed by the relevant assessment authority for your occupation. For this occupation you will need to be assessed by Engineers Australia. They assess professional qualifications in engineering for the purposes of skilled migration to Australia.
In a recent survey, sixty percent of engineers who responded to the survey identified skills deficiencies within their workplaces, and 40 per cent said that their organisation did not have the right mix of engineering skills to meet current or future demands. Engineers Australia estimates 70,000 engineers will have retired in the five years to 2011, but there will be just 45,000 graduates.
