Teachers and Educators

Those who influence and inspire Australia's bright young minds.

Educating Australia's future engineers

Engineers Australia upholds the values and efforts of the teachers and advisors who guide Australian students into engineering pathways.

Educators and career advisors are trusted champions of a bright future for Australia and the world. We are allies in the effort to draw students into the ranks of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals. Together, we face the challenge of relating science and engineering to children in ways that are consistently fun and exciting.

The future of our profession is in the hands of those who will one day be called to design and build the marvels yet to come — and they are in your hands — the people with a unique ability to recognise, cultivate and guide their talents.

Teachers who inspire are often credited with encouraging students to pursue engineering careers. Dedicated advisors open doors to unseen futures for bright minds. Engineers Australia is here to help you accomplish these great tasks.
