ENGINEERING

The engineering and technology field is one of the biggest in Australia. It is also one of the most popular fields among international students due to the strength of Australia’s mining and technology sectors.

Engineering is the application of mathematics, science and practical knowledge in order to invent, innovate, design and build and improve processes. Some of the typical feats of engineering include construction of dams, heavy machinery and structures. Engineers apply science and practical knowledge for the benefit of the society and to enable advancement of mankind. Mankind has come a long way because of Engineering effecting and influencing people from various walks of life and continually pushing the boundaries of science with the level of intuition they bring to the table. Engineers command high respect in society as they are often considered to be the flag bearers of technological advancement in a society.
