Get the support you need
As an Emerging Professional Member, you'll be able to take advantage of our development programme tailored to recent graduates. It'll help you transition to work and build the skills you need to be an outstanding engineering professional. Completing a development programme also means you can get on the fast track to becoming a full Member. If you choose to not take part in a development programme, you'll only move to the Member class after 5 years.

ANNUAL FEES (excl GST)
We’re here to support you as you start out in your career. One of the ways we do this is by providing discounts on your annual membership fee for your first three years of experience.
The discount is applied when your membership is renewed in October each year, or when applying to join as an Emerging Professional Member.
If you join partway through our financial year (1 October – 30 September), we pro-rate the fee on a monthly basis. When your membership comes up for renewal on 1 October, we send an invoice for the new financial year.
If you're on a career break you can request a discounted rate.
