Engineering

Engineering & technology is one of the biggest and most popular disciplines among international students due to the strength of Australia’s mining and technology sectors; and this is one of the most common reasons that lot of students opt for engineering as their preferred field of study.

It is the perfect field for those who are inquisitive about knowing how things are created and how they work, since it includes designing, evaluating, developing, testing, modifying, installing and maintaining a large variety of products and systems.

Above all, engineers are rewarded with highest entry-level salaries and always have an opportunity to be a part of recognised group of professionals and a variety of exciting areas to work in. Engineering career has a lot to offer to its prospective students. However, when it comes to ensuring a successful career in engineering, getting a degree is merely tip of the iceberg.

With market being highly competitive, employers prefer candidates with experience. Not to mention that engineers get huge respect in society too!

PROFESSIONAL YEAR PROGRAM – ENGINEERING

The Professional Year in Engineering has been developed by Engineering Education Australia (EEA) and the professional component is delivered by EEA. The program provides with membership of Engineers Australia and access to the Engineers Australia learning platform.

The reason for the development of this course is to provide a solution to the limited number of skilled professionals in Australia and increase the number of employable international students by increasing their expertise and skill-set and giving them the opportunity to obtain field training.

It is a 44-week course which includes 32 weeks of coursework and 12 weeks of internship.

One of the top benefits of completing a Professional Year Program is that the graduate is eligible to receive five (5) extra points on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) 'points test' when applying for a Skilled Independent (subclass 189) visa.

PATHWAY TO AUSTRALIAN PERMANENT RESIDENCY

Professions in Engineering are in high demand as they are listed in Skilled Occupations List (SOL) and Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List (CSOL). Some of the professions are Civil Engineers, Materials Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Plant Engineers, Electrical Engineers, and Telecommunications Engineers. The procedure for securing Permanent Resident status includes an assessment procedure by a recognized authority mandated for work sponsorship or for migration purpose.

Professional Year Program is officially recognized by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) and enhances the employability of graduate international students thus improving the chances of securing Permanent Resident status.

Also, a PY graduate is eligible to receive five (5) extra points on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) 'points test' when applying for a Skilled Independent (subclass 189) visa.
