External accreditation and industry links

This program does not yet have accreditation by Engineers Australia. Accreditation will be sought for this program as soon as it is feasible to do so within the accreditation time lines set by Engineers Australia. Once fully accredited, graduates of the program will be eligible for graduate membership of Engineers Australia.

Engineers Australia represents Australia as a signatory to the Washington Accord.  Many other countries are signatories to this international agreement for professional engineers.  Qualifications accredited or recognised by other signatories are recognised by each signatory as being substantially equivalent to accredited or recognised qualifications within its own jurisdiction.  See http://www.ieagreements.org/Washington-Accord/signatories.cfm

The School of Engineering and the School of Architecture and Design have extensive links with industry through their Industry Advisory Committees, and through research projects and consulting.  Membership of these committees includes practising engineers or industrial designers, consultants, senior executives, and past graduates from the schools.  Their involvement ensures that the program remains relevant to your needs as a graduate, and to the needs of graduate employers, by providing feedback on the currency of the programs and the changing needs of industry. They also contribute significantly to input in the design of new programs.  In a number of cases industry has provided direct support by donating laboratory equipment.

These networks are further enhanced by the Work Integrated Learning courses, which provide you with an opportunity to undertake an industry-sponsored design project in your final year (as part of Engineering Capstone Project Part A and Part B).
