Program overview

Engineers Australia’s Graduate Program is designed for organisations that are ready to invest in their graduate workforce and shape them into efficient and effective engineering professionals.

Our program will give your graduates the many skills they need to thrive as engineers while showing them how to continue developing these skills independently into the future. It will give them a greater understanding of the impact of their work and decisions on others.

Designed in consultation with engineering organisations, this engaging and flexible 18-month program helps new engineers develop the skills to achieve business results. Content within the program aligns to the underpinning knowledge engineers need to start their journey towards Chartered status.

Our program is an excellent way to attract and retain your graduate workforce.

Is this program for you?

Your graduate(s) must have an engineering degree in any discipline and been working in an engineering-related role for two years or less.
