Develop your advanced engineering skills and contribute to industry-focused research projects, identifying solutions to electrical and electronic engineering problems.
The School of Engineering has research strengths in:
- biomedical engineering
- communication technologies
- complex systems and information processing
- micro/nano materials and devices
- power, energy and control
Much of RMIT’s electrical and electronic engineering research is conducted in the following Research Centres and Research Groups:
- Communication Technologies Research Centre (CTRC)
- Centre for Advanced Electronics and Sensors (CADES)
- Functional Materials and Microsystems Group
RMIT also hosts the following nodes of research:
- ARC Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS)
- Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research, an NHMRC Centre of Excellence in Electromagnetic Bioeffects
The MicroNano Research Facility (MNRF) supports these research centres and groups.
In the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia assessment, electrical and electronic engineering at RMIT was ranked at 'well above world standard'. In the 2015 QS world rankings we are ranked in the top 100 universities in the world in this area based on academic reputation, research citations and employer satisfaction.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Time spent on research
Full-time candidates are expected to commit at least four days per week (or at least two days per week for part-time candidates) to their research. The academic year is 48 weeks.
Regular contact with your supervisor
A schedule of meetings with your supervisor/s must be established to assess progress against milestones and timely completion.
Resources, facilities and support
