 English language requirements

Engineers must demonstrate their English language ability to pass the skills assessment. Engineers Australia accepts IELTS test, TOEFL IBT{Internet Based Test} and PTE as well. Certain passport holders from English speaking countries are exempt. If you do not come from English speaking countries but have finished at least an undergraduate engineering qualification in Australia, a PHD or a 2 year masters in Australia you would be exempt from English testing requirement.

Priority processing and Accredited masters qualifications 

A priority processing service has been introduced which allows for 5 day processing for skills assessment rather than the usual 13 weeks.

You must be having an accredited bachelor degree to avoid Competency Demonstration Report{CDR} process. CDR's take a significant amount of time to be put together. There are some masters qualifications that are accredited by Engineers Australia. Even if you have an overseas bachelor degree but have a masters from an Australian institute, you may get skills assessment without needing to complete a CDR.
