Professional connections

You can increase your career prospects through networking events, training sessions, professional development and industry guest lectures. Through these experiences, you’ll learn the latest issues in your sector and expand your networks.

Don’t worry – if you’re studying online, you’ll have these same opportunities as soon as you arrive in Perth.

Future-focused skills

No matter your course, you’ll learn the technical crafts of your discipline and also refine the career skills valued by all employers, including communication, creative problem-solving, digital knowledges and teamwork.

These skills are essential to future workplaces that increasingly emphasise automation, collaboration and agile thinking.

Two of our engineering courses will place you in the heart of Western Australia’s largest mine site – the Kalgoorlie Super Pit. Here, you can apply your learning to the mine’s day-to-day operations, and build skills in solving operational and technical challenges.

For our online students, we’ll organise internships that you can undertake once you arrive in Perth.
