Science & Engineering courses give analytical students the opportunity to ground their interests through scientific study. Students may focus on engineering, environmental science, mathematics, biology or chemistry. All science courses emphasise theoretical and practical application. Knowing how to ethically gather, apply and critically analyse data in a scientifically rigorous manner underpins laboratory work.
In Australia, there is particularly strong demand for engineers in the areas of mining & resources, and in civil engineering. Courses often include a professional placement, giving engineering students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, and to develop their network before graduation. International students who want to remain in Australia may find pathways to permanent residency as skilled migrant workers.
