Graduate Membership

Becoming a Graduate Member tells potential employers that you’re serious about your career.

As a Graduate Member we help you build the knowledge, skills and experience you need to become a Member or Associate-Member. We help you in your Initial Professional Development (IPD) by connecting you with people, ideas and opportunities that will make a real difference in your career.

You can become a Graduate Member any time after finishing your degree.
 

Boost your employability

Graduate Membership tells the industry that you’re serious about what you do and that you’re working to be the best. We’re here to help you maximise your chance of securing the jobs you apply for, through tailored training, and events.
 

Showcase your skills

Enter the Kenneth Severn Award for the chance to get your work published in our highly respected magazine, The Structural Engineer; apply to study trends and practice in other countries with our Pai Lin Li Travel Award, and, if you are doing a PhD, present your insights at our annual Young Researchers Conference.

Steps to Graduate Membership

 

You're a Student Member graduating in a civil or structural discipline this year:

You will automatically be enrolled as a Graduate Member, with no charge in your first year of Graduate Membership. We will email you to confirm when you have been elected as a Graduate Member. 

 

You are a Student Member graduating in another discipline:

You can apply for Graduate Membership using our Application Form G and may need to undertake an academic assessment. Contact the membership team if you are unsure of your eligibility.

 

You are not a Student Member:

Complete Application Form G and enclose the appropriate supporting documentation and payment, including a photocopy of your degree certificate signed by your employer or supporter stating it is a true copy.
