The study aims to improve our understanding of the full-utilization of immigrant engineers by answering three research questions: (1) what are the economic and social costs of the under-utilization of immigrant engineers, (2) what factors determine immigrant engineers’ employment, and (3) what might be potential solutions to tackle with their under-utilization? We adopt the intersectionality theory to observe a rich set of social factors influential in immigrant engineers’ under-utilization by using 188 surveys and 14 interviews of immigrant engineers living in Australia. The paper concludes with the findings’ theoretical and policy implications, followed by suggestions for future studies.
