Filipino Engineers and Australia’s Proposed Review of Migration Policy

Engineers Australia, the largest and most diverse professional engineering association in Australia with current membership of approximately 89,000 Australia wide has proposed a review of the existing Australia's Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL).

Engineers Australia proposed replacing the decade old ASCO system with the skills based ANZSCO system for classifying occupations.

The primary motivating factor on the proposed review of the MODL is to manage the influx of skilled migrants into Australia particularly during this economic downturn.

This new proposal will be an advantage to the Filipino Engineer. It is a pathway for the Filipino Engineer to become a Chartered Engineer or a Registered Engineer (QLD) which will make him more competitive in the Australian job market.

The full proposal of Engineers Australia can be view here.

A Filipino Engineer, Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) - Australia and Professional Electrical Engineer (PEE) - Philippines with extensive experience in concept select, front-end engineering, HV & LV detail design, construction and commissioning of Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Area electrical installations in water and waste water pipeline and pumping facilities, offshore platforms, hydrocarbon process plants and pipelines including related facilities.
