In this program you’ll learn a combination of technical skills for designing solutions for electrical engineering problems, with business management skills to plan, implement and supervise projects.
Your creative engineering skills will be backed up with strategic skills for their implementation. These skills are becoming increasingly important to the energy, resource, manufacturing and design sectors.
Engineering solutions often involve project work, and the combined skills of this double degree will provide you with an edge in managing projects.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work.
You'll have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
In the final year of your studies you'll undertake a major project that is either industry-based or simulates an industrial situation. You'll work with industry leaders using the theory and practical experience gained through the program to solve a problem.
In order to graduate from this program you must complete a minimum 12 weeks of engineering industry experience that allows you to gain first-hand experience in an engineering practice environment under the supervision of a practising professional engineer. The nature and timing of this engineering experience can take a range of forms.
Opportunities exist for an overseas work placement of between six and 12 months (this satisfies the work experience requirement). These placements are normally taken during a one-year break in the middle or at the end of the third year of the degree.
The skills and project-based assessments will ensure you're industry ready. You'll have technical skills, innovative approaches to solutions, and the confidence and ability to lead.
Work opportunities exist in government organisations and private companies, both in Australia and overseas.
You could design and supervise projects in the fields of renewable energy, power generation and distribution, industrial and process automation or developing new technologies for transportation.
You could also choose to start your own business, delivering services in your specialist area.
Professional recognition and accreditation
This program is fully accredited by Engineers Australia. Graduates of the program are eligible for graduate membership of Engineers Australia. Full membership as a professional engineer may be obtained after an appropriate period of professional practice.
Australia is one of 15 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, also known as the Washington Accord, for professional engineers. The qualification of graduates from this degree is recognised in all countries that are signatories to the Accord.
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 Industry Experience and Research Program (RIIERP) offers workplace training and academic research placements of between six and 12 months.
There are also opportunities to study abroad through Education Abroad.
