Engineers are problem solvers, inventors , creators. In fact, so many things we use day to day results from the work of engineers.
Anyone can call themselves an engineer but not just anyone can practise engineering.
In Queensland we have a unique system that distinguishes experienced professional engineers – this is the RPEQ system.
RPEQ stands for Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland. Any engineer wanting to undertake professional engineering services in or for Queensland is legally required to be a RPEQ. To become a RPEQ, engineers must first demonstrate their qualifications and competencies. Once registered, RPEQs are held to a code of conduct and must continue to develop their skills.
