The Future of Global Engineering

Monday 19 June 2017

Engineering is a technical business with the specialised skills of engineers needed on projects all over the world. Demonstrating the right qualifying titles at home and overseas is a necessity to working in this global industry, but titles should not be a hindrance to qualified engineers.

The Presidents of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), Peter Wong and Engineers Australia, John McIntosh have taken steps to simplify the transfer of equivalent Australian and International titles and qualifications by renewing a longstanding agreement of mutual recognition on Thursday 15 June 2017. This formed part of the celebration at the CIBSE Australia and New Zealand 30th Anniversary function at Melbourne Aquarium.

“There is a mutual respect for the integrity of the registration process that both our institutions adhere to. This agreement gives our members equivalent footing in Australia and overseas,” Paul Angus CIBSE ANZ Chair.

Likewise, qualified Engineers Australia members will find gaining the international equivalent titles of IEng, CEng or EngTech simple through CIBSE.

Members of either Institution wishing to gain equivalent qualifications must apply though the host Institution.
