Employment in engineering in Australia has risen strongly in percentage terms in the past decade.
And jobs for industrial, mechanical and production engineers are predicted to keep growing strongly through to 2019.
For engineers working full time, average earnings are high (around $86,000 per annum), with 55 per cent of engineers holding a Bachelor degree.
Chisholm offers training in engineering from Certificates through to Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas and up to Bachelor degree, with our Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Mechanical and Manufacturing / Mechatronics) offered to both local and international students.
Most recently, Chisholm received $70.5 million from the federal and state governments for a major redevelopment of its Frankston campus, a centrepiece of which will be a new Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Trades. This will complement the facilities at our Dandenong campus, where students have access to modern technology and learn with industry standard equipment such as miniature factory simulators, ABB robotic arms, 3D printing technology, pneumatics machinery and SolidWorks software.
