The Association of Professional Engineers Australia – your voice in the workplace

The Association of Professional Engineers Australia (APEA) is here to support all engineers from when you start your studies to achieving your engineering degree and all the way through to your retirement.

We speak with hundreds of engineers every-year and one of the most common questions we are asked is, what is the difference between Professionals Australia and Engineers Australia?

As you can see from this table there are a number of differences between the two associations and the most important one is, we are here to support you as one of our members through your entire career.

We first began supporting professional engineers in 1948 and over time we have grown our organisation to supporting an additional 11 areas of professionals. We are very proud of the way we have grown over the last 72 years and what we have achieved during this time.

In 2014 the RPEng program was established to give all professional engineers a choice to obtain engineering registration. We worked with the Queensland Government so that we would able one of the six assessment entities for the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland (BPEQ) to which we remain today.

Every day the RPEng team along with our 90+ assessors are working hard to ensure that all professional engineers are recognised for all the hard yards you have done to get you where you are today.

When NSW and Victoria engineering registration requirements start on 1 July 2021, there will be even more engineers who will need registration and we will be here to guide them through the process.

RPEng is the engineer’s choice for registration.
