Engineering and Mining

Engineering involves combining science, mathematics and technology to design and develop things such as engines, machinery and structures. Western Australia’s engineering industry is very closely linked to the mining and construction industries, and offers a wide range of career opportunties including  welders, fitters, machinists, boilermakers, sheetmetal workers and refrigeration and air conditioning mechanics.

The specialist area of surveying offers opportunities to get involved in engineering from the planning stage, whether it's for new land development or a complex spatial information survey this can be very interesting work. 

The mining industry continues to provide excellent opportunities in Western Australia, and the qualifications available in this area go from entry level to help get you into a job, through to higher level and more specialised qualifications for those who want to progress to a mine supervisor or a management role in the industry.
