Engineers Australia’s technical societies provide a vital link between the profession and specific areas of technical practice.
These societies serve many functions related to the establishment and maintenance of engineering qualifications. They also provide a forum for engineers, teams and industry practitioners to participate in professional technical development and networking opportunities.
Technical societies that are operating units of Engineers Australia are bound by the Royal Charter and By-Laws (PDF), regulations, policies and relevant management instructions of Engineers Australia as they exist from time to time.
There are some separately incorporated organisations that, under agreement, perform the functions of an Engineers Australia technical society, however they remain separate legal entities.
