South Australia has a relatively small market predominated by SMEs, so the job opportunities are scarcer here than in the major states of NSW, Victoria or WA. However several large mining companies are situated in the resource-rich state, creating a demand for mining engineers.
Manufacturing is one of the biggest industry sectors in South Australia, with particular focus in the automotive and winemaking industries. Mechanical and mechatronic engineers, as well as professionals with specialised niche engineering skills are therefore in demand. Finally, public investment in the Murray Futures program has also opened up new positions for environmental engineers.
