The perfect blend of formal learning and real-world experience

The Engineers Australia’s Professional Year Program in Engineering was developed by Engineering Education Australia (EEA) to provide international engineering graduates, from Australian universities, the skills and experience they need to begin a successful career.

The program consists of training and an engineering internship placement to help you enter the Australian workplace with confidence. Approved by the Department of Home Affairs, it’s the only legislated work-readiness program for engineers in Australia.
