Engineering and Mining

Engineering is the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines, and structures. Western Australia’s engineering industry is very closely linked to the mining and construction industries. It covers diverse areas including fitters, machinists, boilermakers, sheetmetal workers, and refrigeration and air conditioning mechanics.
