Australia is a country sought after many – and for a good reason. It is developing at a fast pace in infrastructure and technology. For these reasons, engineers are highly valued and in demand. With Australia experiencing a severe shortage of engineers, it is promoting the immigration of engineers from all over the globe, and migration has never been easier.
“Engineers are necessary for the rollout of the infrastructure of ports, roads, and rails. The recovery of Australia may be jeopardized if we do not have adequate skills and people in these critical roles”. Said Chris Walton, Chief Executive of professional engineers, scientists, and managers in Australia.
For engineers from the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and Asia, Australia is becoming more of a dream location. The prospect of working there seems like an exciting venture to them. But the question is why? Professional CDR, an engineering skills assessment company who focuses on Engineers Australia assessments, digs right into this question, and brings you an insight into the mind of engineers especially those from the Middle East and Asian countries.
What is it That Intrigues Engineer the Most About Moving to Australia?
