Reap the Rewards

Power engineering has a lot to offer and rewards you in the right ways – good pay, good lifestyle, good times and a great career!

Most of us dream of having enough money to do the things we want to do and buy what we want.  A popular drawcard for power engineering is the attractive salary.  Currently, it is the second highest paid stream of engineering.  With continued sector growth and the shortage of qualified people, the average starting salary for a graduate is $60,000 per annum excluding superannuation.  With three to five years in the industry, the average salary rises to just under $100,000.

But that’s not all.

Companies employing power engineers recognise the need to develop and retain high quality professionals.  This involves extensive training and development, mentoring and rotation between roles so you can be the best you can be and advance from Graduate Engineer to Experienced Engineer to Engineering Manager in a pretty short timeframe. 

The industry also prides itself on work / life balance with most companies providing flexible working hours.  The strong focus on creating a team environment also helps provide a friendly environment – in and out of work hours - with sporting and social activities regularly on offer.

And there’s more …

If you become a power engineer, the world is at your feet. The global nature of the industry and demand for power engineers means there’s a very real chance that you will move up the ladder fast and you’ll gain broad and varied experience, while seeing Australia, if not the world.

Become a power engineer by studying at one of Australia’s leading universities and reap the rewards.
