Engineering Manager

Many of applicants through CDR path wonder if they could possibly apply as Engineering Manager instead of applying as Professional Engineers. The answer is yes but you need the right experience for this.

What experience do you need to apply as Engineering Manager?

According to Engineers Australia (EA) MSA booklet you need a minimum of 2 years at Engineers Manager position following 5 years of experience at Professional Engineer level.

Details about the EA requirements can be found on page 47 of the MSA booklet that you can download from the EA website: https://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/For-Migrants/Migration-Skills-Assessment/MSA-StepByStep-Guide
