    Qantas chairman Leigh Clifford noted the need to invest in engineering and the education of the engineers of the future (AFR, 28-Nov-2017). Mr Clifford noted the speed of technological change in recent decades, while noting: “Australia faces major challenges across a range of industries, including manufacturing, infrastructure and energy. We need to prepare our young people for the jobs of the future”. He added: “Increasingly manufacturing in Australia will involve greater intellectual input and less muscle power, and engineering will play a key role in this transformation”.
