Emerging Engineers Leadership Program


Emerging Engineers Leadership Program

On this page

The Emerging Engineers Leadership Program supports organisations to develop their rising young engineering talent.

Focusing on engineers with three - six years' experience, our program bridges the gap between graduate capability and the Chartered credential.

This is a crucial stage of development for engineers. They now possess the technical and business acumen to make valuable contributions to an organisation and they’re on their way to becoming the future leaders on an engineering team.

Topics and learning outcomes have been carefully curated to develop the skills, knowledge, and aptitude this cohort needs to move to the next career stage, and become competent, independent, and collaborative professionals.

We've also aligned the content to the underpinning knowledge required for Engineers Australia's Chartered status.

As a modular program, content and learning outcomes can be customised to your organisations objectives.

Is this program for you?

This program is available for organisations employing engineers with three to six years' work experience.
