At the 2016 census, 58.5% of engineers in the Australian labor force were born overseas. Australia has a long history of welcoming migrants and has for many years run a highly managed permanent migration program for skilled migrants including engineers. Most Australian states and territories suffer from a severe shortage of engineers of all disciplines, which makes engineering professions at the top of skilled migration occupations lists every year.
Competency Demonstration Report (CDR) is a set of technical reports submitted to Engineers Australia based on 3 engineering projects, known as 3 career episodes that demonstrate and showcase the applicant’s knowledge and skill levels as an engineer, meeting the Australian standards in terms of professional engineer competency elements including core technical skills, project management skills and soft skills.
Professional CDR, a leading engineering services company, has changed the game by enabling hundreds of engineers from all specializations and different countries successfully obtain their skills assessment and work in Australia as engineers in different industries including construction, infrastructure, oil & gas, mining, production, telecommunications, etc. Engineers Australia skills assessment is fully done online, without engineering exams or a minimum requirement of years of experience which makes it a preferred option for many engineers worldwide.

Also, the purpose of this assessment is career development which is considered an advantage in the engineers resume by recognizing their qualification in most developed countries.
Engineers Australia is the nationally recognised organization in Australia for evaluating engineering skills and competencies. They collaborate with the Department of Home Affairs to develop streamlined migration skills assessment procedures for engineers.
According to Engineers Australia, Professional Engineers hold an Engineers Australia accredited or recognized four-year professional engineering degree. They are expected to focus on overall systems, develop and apply new engineering practices, apply leadership & management skills, pursue engineering opportunities in an holistic way, taking environmental, community & social issues into account, and solve diverse problems.CDR assessment for a professional engineer is mainly based on three competency units: engineering knowledge and skill base, engineering application ability, and professional and personal attributes.
