Combine studies in civil and infrastructure engineering and business management to help you become an engineering manager, capable of providing technical and business leadership.
Civil and infrastructure engineers plan, design, construct, supervise, manage and maintain essential infrastructure in modern communities.
RMIT’s civil and infrastructure engineering program is at the forefront of engineering education and meets Australian and global industry demands. Sub-disciplines include construction/project management, geotechnical, structural, transport and water resources.
The management program focuses on the roles and functions of business management. Managers deal with a range of complex issues, including wider economic and social factors. They must be flexible, able to work with others, effectively prioritise tasks and operate the financial, marketing and human resource aspects of an organisation.
Many engineers quickly move into positions of management within organisations. This double degree will give you an advantage, allowing you to advance into positions of responsibility and influence. A business degree will prepare you to operate in a complex financial system - something often associated with large engineering 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.
This double degree program has strong links with industry and offers opportunities for project-based and work-integrated learning.
In the fourth and final years of your studies you'll undertake major projects that are either industry-based or simulate 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 experience that allows you to gain first-hand experience in an engineering practice environment under the supervision of a 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.
Graduates have a wide range of career opportunities in Australia and overseas.
There is a growing demand for engineering managers capable of providing leadership and decision-making across both technical and financial business systems. Typically, engineering managers are involved in large-scale capital investment projects as well as infrastructure policy and planning.
After gaining professional experience, graduates typically move quickly into middle and senior management or consultant positions.
The management program will prepare you for a range of additional roles, and with appropriate experience you can expect to advance to management positions in commercial, industrial and not-for-profit organisations.
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.
Depending on what you study, graduates of the Bachelor of Business (Management) may be eligible for professional membership of the following bodies:
- Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) (employment relations specialisation)
- CPA Australia (management accounting and finance specialisation).
RMIT has agreements with universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia on civil and infrastructure engineering student exchange programs.
Optional tours are organised to Paris to study practical applications related to sustainable cities of the future.
