Top engineering courses at RMIT

RMIT’s engineering courses are recognised internationally for excellence in education and research.

Our engineering courses are conducted in state-of- the-art facilities and incorporate the latest industry developments. You will use your experience on real projects through industry-based, practical learning.

Here’s some of our courses that reflect the latest industry developments in these fields:

This Associate Degree will introduce you to the fundamentals of engineering before choosing an area of specialisation. The course will get you accredited so you can start working sooner. It also provides a very flexible pathway to an engineering Bachelor degree.

Graduates may work in a range of fields including aerospace, civil and structures, computer networks, electronics, electrical systems and automation, mechatronics, and product development.

RMIT Advantage

This course is accredited by Engineers Australia. It is also supported by an Industry Advisory Committee (IAC) composed of staff from local engineering organisations. The IAC provides regular feedback on the course and the changing needs of industry. As an RMIT engineering student you'll have loads of opportunities to network with engineers and industry from the get-go.

Automotive engineering is a growing global industry. Automotive engineers are employed by major car, truck and bus companies, as well as racing teams and parts manufacturers.

You'll study vehicle power systems, sustainable vehicle design and automotive manufacturing and vehicle handling and control, vehicle aerodynamics, and vehicle noise and vibration.

The course incorporates complete car design with a focus on new technologies that benefit society such as driverless cars, full-electric, hybrid power trains and fuel cells. It takes a global view and is increasingly environmental in outlook. With at least 12 weeks of industry placements undertaken locally or internationally, you'll be work-ready when you graduate. 

RMIT Advantage

This course is fully accredited by Engineers Australia with graduates eligible for membership after completing their degree. This qualification is also recognised internationally by all 24 countries which are signatories of the International Engineering Alliance.

Prepare for leadership roles in the management of engineering and technology-based organisations with a course tailored to your individual needs. 

Through this course you’ll gain important strengths such as thinking strategically and challenging established practices and norms. You’ll enhance your ability to develop innovative approaches to manage an ever-changing technology base.
