Ideate, Create and Build - Construction in Australia

Have you noticed how many civil engineers switch careers and get into IT and software?  What they don’t know is that Australia needs people in the world of architecture. Civil engineers and architects both together have great prospects in Australia.

If you are planning to study a construction-related course, finished your engineering in the same or have switched careers because you felt there is a lack of opportunity, this might be helpful for you.

There are two primary categories in the field of construction – civil engineering and architecture.

Civil Engineering

Civil engineers, who are professionals plan, design and supervise constructions of pipelines for oil, gas and water, dams, bridges, sewage systems, roads, airports and other buildings. The technicians and draftspersons assist them and take care of the maintenance.

Civil engineers in Australia –(ANZSCO: 2332)

As of November 2013, there were 47,800 jobs for professional civil engineers and around 12,800 for draftspersons and technicians in Australia’s construction industry. This steadily growing industry is expecting somewhere between 10,000 to 25,000 openings in both the fields individually, by November 2018. The average range of civil engineers is 25-34 years of age.

A draftsperson or technician requires only a diploma or an advanced diploma in civil engineering to land a job in Australia.
