Default One possible route

Where are you from? If you are a resident in UK and you are above 32 years of age there might be a way out for you. If you are 32+ and have atleast 4 years of working experience you can firstly become a chartered engineer with the engineering council in UK. This is quite a long procedure. It took me about 8-9 months since application, but I was 26 at time of application. If you are 32 and have 4 years of experience you are classed as mature candidate and do not require any formal university education as long as you can write a "experience in lieu" document (about 10-12 pages). Once a chartered engineer in UK, no problems with either ACS or with DMIA.
Hope this is of help

I'm not sure if that's true in all cases. IEAUST is the normal
assessing body for engineers, not ACS, anyhow.

Actually, Chartered Engineers are assessed by IEAust, as Jeremy's pointed out. And if you're applying to IEAust, you'll need to either write a long-winded CDR (Competency Demonstration Report) or prove that you hold an engineering degree from one of the countries who are signatories to the Washington Accord.

ACS officially only mention that they recognize professional membership of BCS and ACS as shoo-in ways of being assessed in Group A (and 4 years of IT experience is required too).

They recognise the New Zealand Computer Society too.

From BCS and NZCS, only full professional membership is accepted.
