Hi Guys / Girls,

I am wondering, how does the engineering scene look in OZ? I know mining is booming at the moment? I am a Civil Engineer specializing in water and sanitation. With my current employer here in SA, I am now doing roads and stormwater, landfills, earthworks, retaining walls, basically everything associated with Municipal infrastructure.

I have two basic questions, is there a demand for my skills at this stage and in general, how does OZ treat the different engineering qualifications like between engineers, technologists and technicians. Here in SA if you are a technician / technologist you are often frown upon as a second hand engineer. You are always good enough to do the job but never good enough to get the pay!

Any inputs will be appreciated!
