PRESENTATION:
Historically, the energy industry can be characterised as being relatively stable and predictable. However,
the past decade has seen considerable c
hange due to global economic pressures, the rise of renewable
energy and associated technologies, including solar and battery technology, customer expectations and
regulatory challenges.
As such, the need for engineering graduates equipped with the skills
to creatively and
effectively work with companies as they transform is paramount. To foster and shape these graduates, it is
critically important that industry and academic institutions work in partnership to attract the brightest and
best engineering stu
dents.
In the context of the conference theme, partnering with industry must also extend to supporting the
development of top class design/project
-
based courses.
By leveraging strong industry and academic
institutional partnerships, we will be securing A
ustralia’s energy industry now and into the future.
