Yes! At this time there are 2 EIT programs that have provisional recognition under the Dublin Accord, with more to follow. Information about the Dublin Accord accreditation is here: and you can read specific details here: Advanced Diploma of Industrial Automation and here: Advanced Diploma of Applied Electrical Engineering.

When a program is accredited it effectively speeds up the process for graduates to become a member of their chosen engineering association at the “associate” level (known as “technician” or “officer” in some world regions). This provides paraprofessional membership status and peer recognition. If the advanced diploma program you have studied is not yet formally accredited, the qualification may be considered as one criteria for membership of an association (along with peer review, experience and so on). Contact your preferred association for details.

The International Engineering Alliance has defined methods that are used to provide recognition of engineering and technology qualifications in various locations. Three “accords” have been established for this purpose. Details can be viewed The signatories in various locations can be viewed within the details section on each of the three accords.

The Washington Accord can apply to certain 4 year full time university degree qualifications such as the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng). It provides full recognition as a professional engineer. Some “conversion style” masters degree programs may also be recognized as conferring professional engineer status. Contact your preferred association for details.

The Sydney Accord can apply to certain 3 year full time university qualifications such as the Bachelor of Science (Engineering), Bachelor of Engineering Science, Bachelor of Technology (BTech). At present EIT does not offer these programs but may do so in the future.
