Overview

Engineering is a challenging and exciting field that uses physical science and mathematics to solve complex problems. Engineers must enjoy design work, thinking creatively and analytically, working as part of a team, and communicating their ideas to others.

If you are interested in developing new, innovative technology to improve the quality of our lives and provide solutions to meet the needs of our modern world, then Engineering is for you.

Engineers understand the underlying mechanisms of how things work, ensuring that almost everything that underpins our society functions effectively, safely and efficiently. They are responsible for designing, analysing and improving basic infrastructure, water resource management, telecommunications systems, and the generation and distribution of electricity. Engineers improve the operation of processing plants and factories, and they design new medical technology, digital systems and electronics.
