MPI Report Examines Efforts to Reduce International Barriers to Recognition of Engineering Qualifications

A new Migration Policy Institute report, Skills, Professional Regulation, and International Mobility in the Engineering Workforce, examines the hurdles that engineers face in translating their credentials and work experience to other countries.

This report, one in a series examining credential recognition issues, reviews the skills and structure of the engineering workforce, the industry’s professional regulation, and international efforts to forge common standards. It concludes with an assessment of the barriers to international mobility.
An earlier report in this series, Credential Recognition in the United States for Foreign Professionals, examines the US credential recognition process. And within the next few weeks, MPI will publish a report by Lesleyanne Hawthorne of the University of Melbourne profiling emerging global trends in credential recognition.
