As a global university of technology, design and enterprise, RMIT brings unique capabilities to research through a transdisciplinary approach.
Our academic expertise, strong links to research partners and consideration of technological and social dimensions enables us to find solutions to critical problems impacting communities and the environment.
Research at RMIT aims to solve critical global problems and to deliver significant economic, social and environmental impact. Unlike conventional discipline-based research structures, the Enabling Capability Platforms connect researchers from multiple disciplines and from across Colleges under a thematic umbrella.
Enabling Capability Platforms
RMIT has a reputation for excellence in high quality research and deep industry links.
RMIT’s focus as a global university of technology, design and enterprise is supported by a range of research hubs such as the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct and the Micro Nano Research Facility.
The RMIT Research Awards focus on research excellence and research impact. It is through these research contributions that RMIT continues to bridge the gap between research and impact, benefitting those beyond the academic community.
