Engineering As the world gets more complex, the need for engineering solutions increases. There’s a global demand for engineering skills which makes this an exciting field to enter. Our engineering degrees and diplomas are a good combination of theory and practical work. Plus you’ll learn in modern workshops with the latest technology – we’ve just spent $3 million upgrading our engineering facilities. Engineering goes beyond machinery, construction and circuitry. It encompasses sustainability and community, and ultimately improves the way we live. The work of an engineer is at the heart of modern life - be it developing production models that suit the environment, providing clean water or creating technologies that bring people together.
