The future of engineering consultants in Sydney
As structural engineers in Sydney we have great news about the engineering industry and those fresh new faces that will head into the engineering profession.
According to Engineers Australia, five Australian universities are performing “well above world standard” for engineering research according to the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) 2012 report released by the federal government.
Monash, Melbourne, Newcastle, Queensland and Sydney universities received the top grade for the standard of their engineering research.
The ERA system evaluates research by having universities submit information on research activities, publications, awards, grants etc. Committees of internationally recognised researchers then evaluate this material by discipline.
This system seems to be trying to help provide students with practical and theoretical education that is up to standard with the evolving and growing industry, which is a positive project for the future of the building engineering consultants.
