SummaryEngineering education in Australia continues to evolve. This study asks: “Are current changes to engineering education consistent with competence deficiencies in engineering graduates perceived by engineers ? “The method is different from previous international and Australian studies, and the findings are consistent with the results of previous studies. Practical engineering competencies and engineering business competencies featured strongly. The findings support continuation of current trends in the evolution of engineering education: cultural change, broadening of curricula, and introduction of non-traditional pedagogies, assessments and learning environments.
