After Military Engineering, the discipline of Civil Engineering is the second oldest discipline that deals with the construction, maintenance, and design of the natural and physical built surroundings that includes bridges, buildings, canals, and dams. From time immemorial, Civil Engineers have been required in both public and private sectors across the globe with Australia being no exception. Actually, the demand of these experts has always been pretty high in this highly developed world economy. As per some available reports, at the present, the demand has increased further across the country.
Perhaps, this is the reason why the Australian department of immigration, i.e., the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP), has lately included the profession in its skilled occupation lists, under the ANZSCO Code 233211, delineating the official requirement of these specialists, and also showing the importance that it gives to these specialists.
