“Engineers are essential for the rollout of the infrastructure of roads, rail and ports and Australia’s recovery may be jeopardized if we do not have adequate skills and people in these critical roles”. Chris Walton, Chief Executive of the Association of Professional Engineers, Scientists and Managers Australia, said.
In a recent survey, sixty percent of engineers who responded to the survey identified skills deficiencies within their workplaces, and 40 percent said that their organization did not have the right mix of engineering skills to meet current or future demands. Engineers Australia estimates 70,000 engineers will have retired in the five years to 2011, but there will be just 45,000 graduates. The following table indicates the wage rates that Engineers in Australia are currently being paid in $AUD.
