Let’s celebrate the E in STEM!
A recent youth survey by the Australian Government found that of all the STEM disciplines, students were most confused about what engineering is. And yet 95% of engineering grads find work in their area within three months!
In the latest edition of Careers with STEM, published by STEM-specialists communications agency Refraction Media, we explain what engineering is all about and showcase a diverse mix of real-life engineers – problem solvers building the cities of the future, fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and making the world a better, more inclusive and liveable place.
Supported by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, the issue reveals how to take an engineering degree directly to a bank.
“Software engineering is exciting and rewarding, with problem-solving , creativity and diversity,” according to Ramon Buckland, Consultant Software Engineer at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
Flip the magazine over for a special, 8-page future-focussed Resources edition, exploring emerging careers in the mining and resources industry, including space mining, sustainability, AI and tech and non-uni pathways.
Two copies of Careers with STEM: Engineering 2020 are delivered to every secondary school and university in Australia.
