At its core, engineering is about using maths and science to solve problems. From buildings to apps, engineers design and build efficient solutions that we use in our everyday lives and beyond.
With the world currently facing multiple crises – climate change, natural disasters, war, a pandemic and food insecurity – people with engineering skills are in high demand. In Australia alone, more than 80% of engineering graduates land full-time jobs within four months of graduation.
Opportunities in engineering are vast. Combine engineering with agriculture to help combat food shortages, or with Defence to protect your country. Working in renewable energy will play an active role in reducing carbon emissions, while a biomedical career could see you designing lifesaving equipment such as ventilators.
Engineering underpins so many important jobs of our present and future. That’s why, in this issue – sponsored by Commonwealth Bank – we’re shining a light on amazing engineering feats and the careers behind them.
