Research on population projections and estimates are well-developed worldwide. Nonetheless, methodological advances are still required when it comes to educationspecific population projections. This paper aims to contribute in this matter presenting a method to project specialised workforce in Brazil. The proposed method conjugates four different public databases which are easily accessible and can be used to project professionals with different higher education qualifications by sex and age. Moreover, the method is applied to estimate engineering workforce availability in Brazil up to 2020.
