Making a difference with industry projects

RMIT engineering students get to the opportunity to make a difference by working on industry projects with real clients. Hear how Daniel, Marcela and Peter are working on creating new technology to help children with limited mobility.

Our industry partners range from small companies to multinational organisations.
