Melbourne City and Bundoora
This program develops advanced knowledge and skills in aerospace engineering and prepares you to become a leader, consultant or manager in the aerospace and aviation industries.
You'll learn how to analyse complex engineering assets in the aerospace and aviation environment, and develop engineering, scientific and technological solutions to ensure problem-free operations.
As the aerospace industry is associated with cutting edge technology, you'll learn how to find innovative solutions for challenging problems and opportunities from an array of possibilities. These skills will be gained through systematic problem-solving and engineering/technological systems design methodologies operating in the industry.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Most lectures take place at the Melbourne City campus and some lab classes run at the Bundoora campus.
Some projects in the Master's Research Project course may require travel to the Bundoora campus. Alternative projects based entirely at the Melbourne city campus are available.?
A range of learning and teaching approaches are used within this program to develop your capabilities and to assist you in developing skills as an independent and lifelong learner.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional practice. You'll undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional practice. You will complete these activities in real-work contexts or situations - any or all of these aspects of a work-integrated learning (WIL) experience may be simulated.
Industry plays a vital role in the development, delivery and assessment of the program through membership of the School program advisory committee, which comprises industry representatives, academic staff and alumni.
You will undertake activities and interact with industry and communities in real-work contexts or situations. Any or all of these aspects of a WIL experience may be simulated.
Work-integrated learning has been incorporated into the final year Master's Research Project where you will work on a capstone project. These projects are either directly connected with industry or simulate the situation of a graduate in industry reporting to a supervisor with whom they meet regularly. In cases where the project is directly connected with industry, the industry partner is usually involved in the assessment.
As part of the Masters you must complete at least 12 weeks of work experience in a professional engineering environment. Work experience completed prior to joining this program and after commencing a relevant bachelor degree (see Entry Requirements) will count towards the work experience component.
At the completion of the program you will be equipped to further your career aspirations in aerospace
engineering, operations, or consultancy in aviation, mechanical engineering and automotive engineering as:
- a research and development leader introducing new technologies and research and development
- a team leader implementing operational strategies
- an operations manager responsible for the competitive performance of a unit
- a consultant providing specialist technical advice to industry.
Professional recognition and accreditation
This program does not yet have accreditation by Engineers Australia. Accreditation will be sought for this program as soon as it is feasible to do so within the accreditation time lines set by Engineers Australia.
Australia is one of 15 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, also known as the Washington Accord, for professional engineers.
RMIT encourages you to aspire to a global career, not just a local one.
Through partner organisations in Europe, Asia and the United States, the RMIT International Experience and Research Program (RIIERP) offers workplace training and academic research placements between 6 and 12 months.
There are also opportunities to study abroad through Education Abroad.
