Engineers work on a huge range of tasks in many different environments – industries like electronics, energy, food, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, construction, environmental health and transportation. Engineering continues to be one of the most in-demand qualifications in the world, with many countries desperate to fill a shortage of professional skills in this field.

A Professional Engineering (Civil) program from University of Newcastle will open up even more varied career opportunities, empowering you to take on a leadership role, start your own business or manage major engineering projects.

  • Salaries:  As an engineer, you’ll be valued and well rewarded. Starting salaries for our postgraduate engineers average around $154,000 which is above the national average. *
  • Flexibility: Some engineers work 9-5 in an office, others fly-in-fly out from a project site. You might prefer hands-on fieldwork, design and development, or managing people and projects.
  • Global opportunities: As a qualified engineer you can travel the world and work almost anywhere you choose. Professional recognition through Engineers Australia lets you work in places such as Canada, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Turkey, the UK and the USA.
