Your guide to migrating to Queensland: engineering registration
5 February 2018
It is a requirement of the Professional Engineers Act (QLD) that professional engineering services in Queensland or for Queensland are carried out by a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) or alternatively by a person who carries out the services under the direct supervision of a RPEQ who is ultimately responsible.
BSMQ requires offshore applicants applying under engineering occupations to obtain evidence of registration (where specified against their occupation on the QSOL) with the Board of Professional Engineers of Queensland (BPEQ). If you are an onshore applicant and do not have BPEQ registration, you can only currently work in a professional engineering role in Queensland under direct supervision of a RPEQ who is ultimately responsible.
Queensland is currently the only Australian jurisdiction to apply a comprehensive registration system for engineers. However, other states are said to soon follow suit.
There are currently 26 areas of engineering recognised by BPEQ. BPEQ works with professional organisations to define these areas of engineering, which range from aeronautical to civil engineers, chemical to naval architects. The registration system ensures a high standard of practice exists within Queensland across all areas of engineering.
If you are required to have the BPEQ registration, you must obtain it prior to lodging an Expression of Interest in SkillSelect.
For more information about BPEQ registration, please contact them:

Please note that onshore and offshore applicants must still have a skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority. A Skills Migration Assessment does not meet the assessment criteria for BPEQ registration. See Engineers Australia for more information about skills assessments and the National Engineering Register.
Areas of Engineering
AusIMM has been approved to assess competencies in the following areas of engineering:
- Geotechnical (Mining)
CASA Instrument of Authority – if you hold a CASA Instrument of Authority you will be registered in the following area of engineering:
Engineers Australia has been approved to assess competencies in the following areas of engineering:
General Areas of Engineering:
- Building Services
- Information, Telecommunications and Electronics
- Naval Architecture
Specific Areas of Engineering:
- Fire Safety
- Heritage and Conservation
- In-Service Inspection of Amusement Rides and Devices
- Pressure Equipment Design Verification
- Subdivisional Geotechnics
Geotechnical Engineers who do not operate in the Geotechnical (Mining) sector must apply to Engineers Australia for assessment of their qualifications and competencies. Although, Engineers Australia does not have a general area of engineering called Geotechnical it will assess general Geotechnical Engineers in the area of civil engineering.
