The Association of Professional Engineers Australia (APEA) would like to congratulate the Victorian ALP on its landslide victory in last weekend’s election. For the next four years, we can expect further investment in infrastructure namely hospitals, road and rail e.g. Frankston Hospital, the North East Link and an Airport Rail Link to mention but a few. Record spending in infrastructure projects will require greater investment in qualified and skilled engineers to plan, design and implement these projects safely and on-time.
Currently, Queensland, through the RPEQ system, are the only state in the nation that requires engineers to be registered to perform engineering services.
Support the establishment of a registration scheme throughout all the states by signing our petition at Engineering A Better Future.
Community safety depends on capable, qualified engineers, and registration helps protect standards and promote competence.
