About Science and Technology at RMIT

Our science programs combine theory, project–based learning, laboratory work, work integrated learning and other practical experiences to ensure that our graduates are highly sought after by employers, both here in Australia, and overseas.

One of RMIT's top-performing research schools, we deliver research that addresses the 'real life questions' essential to Australia's innovation agenda. Our high-quality teaching programs inspire students to pursue careers in a range of industries including health, materials technology, food, geospatial and surveying, environmental analysis, banking and commerce, as well as computing and IT roles and research and development across a wide range of areas.

Our students are equipped with a grounding in the scientific skills and concepts necessary for them to excel in their chosen field.

The recent Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) exercise ranking Applied Mathematics, Condensed Matter Physics, Physical Chemistry (including Structural) and Environmental Science and Management
 as being ‘well above world standard’,
 the highest possible ranking available.

Other areas within the School, including artificial intelligence and image processing, information systems and analytical chemistry were ranked as being ‘above world standard’.

The School of Science is home to many outstanding research centres, including the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics, in which our students conduct scientific research.
