What is the course about?
This course takes an in depth look at various types of engineering from the prospective of an Australian Engineering company. It gives you an insight it what engineering is all about, the different types of engineering out there, which are the most promising fields, which are the most lucrative fields as well as some design examples for mechanical and electrical engineering. You don't need high level maths skills to solve these design problems! We hold your hand as you go through any problems!
What kind of materials are included?
How long will the course take to complete?
Set aside a day (8 hours) to do this course, as you will need a day to soak up the volumes of information we provide.

Why take this course?
If you are interested in becoming an engineering, or you want to know about engineering and what engineers do, it is perfect for you! It is a great way to get a view into the closed and mysterious world of engineering from an engineering company's perspective.
An overview into the world of mechanical engineering and what it is about in more detail!
In this lecture, we briefly look at some theory of mechanics! We will use this for the light switch design example!
We go into a little bit more detail into the theory of mechanics
Are you ready to design a light switch? It follows on from the theory in the previous videos!
A continuation of the theory we will need for our design of an adding machine! More about logic gates!
In this design example, we go design a digital device that can add some numbers together! We use the theory built up in the previous videos to do this.
We take you through different universities and how good they are in engineering as well as tips to get into university and what to do while there.
We go through the highest paid engineering jobs, the future engineering jobs, how to land a certain engineering jobs and more!
A conclusion of what you have learnt through this course. You should now be able to answer all these questions!
P.E. is a professional engineering company in Australia. They specialize in a multitude of types of Engineering and have interests in multiple industries. Their latest venture comes from the learning division of the company, where they are embarking on sharing their own modified development courses that their staff use for training. But to start with they have made a course so prospective engineers can make an informed decision if engineering is right for them.
