[Abstract]: Till today, the top-senior management of corporate Australia seems to be dominated by professionals such as accountants, lawyers and economist. From the current situation, it seems that the attractiveness of senior engineers as potential candidate for top-senior management position such as managing director and CEO position tends to be low. This thesis uses researches and analysis to assess the factors affecting the advancement of engineers to top-senior management levels and targeted to investigate one aspect of this observation. It involves undertaking literature survey in the area of leadership and management especially in the field of engineering and researching attributes of professionals, including engineers, who are in influential leadership positions. The overall project has attracted interests from Engineers Australia and its leadership arm, Centre for Engineering Leadership and Management (CELM). Based on the results of such projects, they are able to modify the structure of education for engineering courses with the intention to prepare or groom them into potential future top-senior management staffs.
