Work Conditions of an Engineering Manager...
Engineering managers may be obligated to spend their hours in an office but can also be required to spend their time supervising progress on site. A construction site can have hazardous machinery or equipment and could require an Engineer Manager to participate and wear Personal Protective Equipment.
The average hours for a full time Engineering Manager are 45.8 hours per week. Deadlines or unmet standards may bring extra pressure to a job, thus requiring engineers to work longer hours.
Engineering managers may be required to complete the following:
• Direct the layout of engineering strategies, policies and plans
• Ensure quality, cost, safety, timelines and performance standards are met
• Interpret plans, drawings and specifications
• Provide advice on engineering methods and procedures to achieve construction and production requirements
• Communicate with marketing, research and other managers concerning engineering aspects of construction and design
• Determine the work schedules and budgets for each project
• Ensure conformity with specifications and plans, as well as with laws and safety standards
• Oversee the maintenance of a project to ensure efficiency
• Control the selection and training of engineering staff
• Organise the activities of engineering staff members
• Contribute to research and development projects
Specialisation areas for an engineer include:
• Civil Engineer
• Mining Engineer
• Mechanical Engineer
• Electronics Engineer Technician
88.6% of workers in engineering are male and
11.4% are female

Unemployment is low at the moment for Engineering Managers compared to all other occupations. Employment has risen very strongly in the last 10 years by 358.5% and is expected to continue growing up until 2017. Victoria happens to be the top region for employment as an Engineering Manager as it contains more than a quarter of the job opportunities in Australia (25.7%). 98.8% of the people that do have a job in this industry work full time wheres only 1.2% work part time (including men and women). The number of job openings that will be available in the future is predicted to be an average amount but could rise from people leaving the occupation and/or employment growth.
Education and Training Requirement for an Engineering Manager...
To become an engineering manager and apply for any courses you first need to gain your VCE. Engineering Management requires prior knowledge in each of these prerequisite subjects:
Jobs in this occupation also require a completion of a Bachelor Degree and relevant experience. A major in engineering management is usually ideal with employers as well as any other post-graduate study. Most universities in Australia such as Monash University and Swinburne offer these degrees. However, to enter into the courses they offer, an ATAR of 90 or higher is required. After graduating, you may be eligible for a membership of Engineers Australia to advance your engineering skills and professional development.
