Engineering is a field in which having a thorough knowledge of your profession is both a key requirement and a great advantage. This is why if you’re keen on succeeding in you chosen profession, you must equip yourself with proper knowledge and skills so you can take advantage of excellent job opportunities. But what if you already have obtained the basic qualifications for an engineering position but you still find it difficult to find employment? If this is the case, then you should consider pursuing the Professional Year Program Engineering.
Developed by Engineering Education Australia (EEA), the Professional Year Program Engineering is designed to equip international graduates of Australian universities with the skills and experience they need to launch a successful career in the field of engineering. It provides graduates with job readiness training that covers Australian work practice, WHS, business communications and job hunting advice.
After completing 32 weeks of coursework, the program offers the graduates the opportunity to obtain experience by providing them with 10 to 12 weeks of compulsory internship at a relevant Australian firm. The program is endorsed and supported by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to help address the shortage of qualified engineering professionals in Australia
