About Engineering

Engineering is an industry that has been around since ancient times and it’s responsible for many inventions that have shaped our modern world. This includes innovations such as the pulley, lever and wheel – inventions that have transformed the way we do things, and that underpin so many functions of engineering today. These smaller creations have gone on to shape larger engineering feats, such as the world’s tallest building – the impressive Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which stands a staggering 829.8m tall.

Did you know that Australians are responsible for a range of influential engineering inventions? These include the electric drill, solar hot water, the black box flight recorder and wireless Internet. With the right training, you could be Australia’s next big engineering inventor.

If you are an innovator who enjoys a hands-on approach, an engineering career could be your calling. With ever-advancing technology, the engineering industry – currently categorised into chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical, amongst others – continues to grow and diversify in new and exciting ways, and into new fields altogether.
