Engineering
We live in an evolving world and embedded within almost every
innovation and development is an aspect of engineering. From
turning on a light switch to supplying entire communities with
power, communications and water, the engineer has a role in
serving the community by maintaining and improving quality of
life and standard of living. Engineers don’t just develop and apply
new technologies, they work in teams on projects that require
creativity and innovation, and often end up becoming leaders
in business and the community. Engineering underpins a range
of specialist careers including computer systems, electrical and
mechatronics, defence, mining, electronics and communications,
networking and communications, the design of sustainable
systems for energy production, the design and construction of
green buildings, industrial development and water management.

Careers within the sphere of engineering are widespread.
