By 1996, a member of the Institution of Engineers Australia was twice as likely to work in private industry as in government. Moreover, engineers’ tasks are increasingly people- rather than design-centred. Of IEAust members, 40 per cent were employed in “management” in 1995 (Webster, 1996) and, like their American and British counterparts, tended to choose this non-technical path as a good career move and an advance in status. Most employers of engineering graduates now tend to cite communication skills as the top criterion for appointment, followed by other generic characteristics, rather than by a specific depth of technical skill (Spotlight, 2000).

The first remark, however, is that in terms of relevance, this table is more interesting concerning the trends and comparisons between values, than the specific values themselves. It is difficult to establish direct correlations or deductions from Table IV, as there are many other features to be considered. However, it may be interesting to make some basic remarks concerning these data. B). Notice that the higher values correspond to hard disciplines as civil or nautical engineering, with values of more than 30 per cent, while industrial engineering (and related) disciplines remain at about 10-20 per cent, and ICTs around 0-10 per cent.
