Diversifying engineering: overcoming a national skills crisis
Australia is facing a growing demand for engineers across a range of industries. The expanding pipeline of projects – in areas such as infrastructure, transport, mining and resources, construction, defence and beyond – means that more and more skilled engineers are needed to deliver them.

But this burgeoning demand for labour is not being met with an adequate supply. While industries are calling out for more engineers, the number of young people completing engineering degrees at university is shrinking.
