  2. Dont waste your time unless you want to work overseas.
  3. Then again - I hear (from a fellow engineer) there is only 2 percent
    unemployment of engineers in Australia.

    Best you check with the Institue of Engineers they should have accurate

    Yes - for some electronics and electrial work there is more oportunity
    oversea..... but still some electronics design in Australia.

  4. So you want an early morning pop quiz and late afternoon lab all the rest of
    the days of your life?

    ** OK , right - if you have never worked as an engineer in Aussie, or
    have given up looking for such work - you are simply not included in the

    Just like the FAKE employment figures quoted by the government here all the

    There are Lies, damn LIES and FUCKING irrelevant statistics quoted by

    I read or heard about a famous study recently (though I don't recall
    any of the specifics...)

    It followed a few hundred Ivy-League Grads though the course of their
    careers, and over the course of a couple decades.

    It turned out that a suprising and statistically significant number of
    Millionaires in this group did not actually make their millions doing
    whatever it was they went to school for. They got it doing what they

    So, if your passion is EE, that's a plus.
    If your passion is owning and operating your own business, that's a
    plus -- but they are not necessarily correlated. Jim seems to have
    the best of both worlds.

    If you like school and can afford it, then go for it. :)

    Although these days, if you can afford to go to school, you should
    practically be able to retire. ;-)

    Good Luck!

    Well I was thinking Deakin, where I would be able to finish off what Ive
    done so far.
    RMIT is a hole, went there for a short course, was not impressed.
