Niki Robinson - Environmental Engineer & Water Regulation

Thinking about careers and choosing which subjects to do in high school can be confusing.

Job markets are rapidly changing, bringing new opportunities today that were never imagined before. Evolving technologies mean students will face exciting prospects and challenges in their potential careers – they’ll need to find new solutions to current global issues and solve problems that may not even exist yet.

Australia’s social, environmental and economic prosperity depends on how they embrace this future, and it starts with the transferable skills and multi-disciplinary capabilities of STEM education and training.  STELR’s aim is to promote an awareness of the countless STEM study paths and careers, the nature of their work and real world impact. We hope to empower students to pursue their own solutions and seek opportunities for innovation to become change makers themselves.

Niki Robinson is Manager of Water and Sewerage Infrastructure Regulation, Office of the Technical Regulator, Department of Premier and Cabinet in South Australia. Niki works on technical regulation of the water services industry, she is the first female President of Engineers Australia (SA).
