President's Column

"Employment for engineers"

Employment and job losses dominate the news at present. The first months of the year, have featured a run of bad news about the car industry, manufacturing in general and Qantas. Add to this, the end of the boom in mining investment.

The bad news has rattled Australians. Official surveys show consumers are increasingly concerned about their jobs and the economic outlook. Looking into the future, we are aware our society and economy is in transition. We wonder what industries shall take the place of those which are falling? Where shall we work in the future? As professional engineers, what type of skills should we develop through our continuing professional development?
