As far I search more or less education fee is almost same of all universities. Who have good reputation in market are little higher than other universities. Now depend on your budget and location where you want to study.

You can find some good universities name on this website
australian-universitiesdotcom

I can't post website link right now, I hope you will understand what I mean

As for engineering I would turn towards technical unis such as UTS.

As for MBA... almost everyone offers it and I don't think it is easy to determine who would be the best choice. Some of the top universities in Australia:

Australian National University Canberra
University of Sydney
University of Melbourne
University of QLD
Monash University
University of NSW

Thanks for responding, Ramzero n Dexter.
For instance, I wanna go to Australian National Uni Canberra, how are the job prospects for Engineers there? I wont be a full time student. I will WORK full-time and uni part-time. Do they have flexible class schedules such as evening/weekend classes?
Cheers!

I am sure that there are part time and evening courses at each of the unis that I listed. Some of the courses would also be offered as distance education.

As for work for engineers... Australia is probably not the best place for engineers and I guess many of them decide to migrate after completion of their studies. It doesn't mean there is none but there are other jobs that might be popular in this country.

MBA is good but only when you already have some business experience. I have had sales experience for over 6 years and have been a manager for nearly 2 years. For me MBA makes sense. There are plenty of overseas students who decide to take on the course and then end up unemployed doing some simple jobs like taxi driving.

Wow ........ I think you are probably the first person to say that Australia is not a good place for Engineers as such.
I have heard a lot about the boom in Mining industry in Australia and there is skill shortage too. What do you think about that? I have always thought that they need a lot of Engineers to overcome the imminent shortage of manpower?
I had a completely different impression until you brought this to my attention. Kindly talk a bit more on this.
MBA surely is a good option and I think of pursuing it as well but the only problem is that my bachelors is in Engineering and if I want to go for MBA it would require an extra year or so in the beginning to complete all the prerequisites which would prolong the academic curriculum. I am not sure at the moment about that, still in the thought process.
Thanks

If you are an international student you can only work part time (vacation full time), study full time and university is very expensive, but you can get a 2 year post grad work too. Engineering is on the skilled occupation list for immigration, and remember TAFE vocational pathways are cheaper.

For lots of info see MyFuture Career & Study Resources and Australian government's official Study in Australia website.

Booming in mining industry and jobs for engineers are two different things. Mining industry obviously requires some engineers but it is more skilled, experienced miners who are in demand. Australia usually imports technology and electronics from Asia and therefore, many engineers from here migrate to Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong and other Asian countries. I speak this from my own experience although I am not an engineers. I have met quite a few immigrants here who came as engineers and they did not get the position they expected. Therefore, they decided to leave the country.

What sort of engineer would you like to be?

MBA is good only if you have some business experience in Australia (not overseas). Getting MBA only might get you end up like many people who held student visa in this country. Today they do have MBA and they still work in supermarkets or drive taxi since they lack Australian experience and they are overqualified for simple business jobs like customer service or telemarketing.

Hi Dexter/Connaust,

I think the conversation has adopted a totally different direction ........ let me give you a bit of a background.
I am an Electrical Engineer with 5 years of experience. Approximately 14 months ago I lodged an application for GSM 175 Visa which is still under progress. The reason I initially inquired about part-time classes is because I plan to pursue evening courses and work full-time once I get to Australia on 175.
Quoted from 12-28-2011:
"Thanks for responding, Ramzero n Dexter.

Cheers! "
Now ANU was an example, just to know if there are work prospects for Engineers or not in Canberra because ANUs academic program appealed to me?
You guys are Aussies so you must know better.
Regards,
ibanez
