Your career as a mechanical engineer
As a mechanical engineer your creativity and technical skills will be in high demand across many industries managing and maintaining existing technologies and developing new ones.
How you will learn
You will apply detailed design and analysis to industry-based problems using specialised facilities and equipment from wind tunnels to machine shops, fabrication and testing facilities.
You will also take your studies beyond the classroom with a minimum of 12 weeks' industry work placement and projects that replicate real-world problems.
Friends recommended RMIT as being the best place to offer the subjects that I was interested in but I’ve gotten a lot more out of it than just that. There is a lot of hard work involved but there are a lot of rewards, not only at the academic level, but at the level of personal development. Excellent teachers add to the learning experience.
