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.

Launch your career as a project manager, design engineer, construction manager, environmental engineer or engineering asset manager. 

You'll be able to specialise in civil infrastructure projects, geotechnical works, structures, transport or water resources. There's also a broad range of electives so you can customise your studies to suit your interests.

The course maintains an environmental sustainability focus, in line with continuing trends in the global engineering profession.

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.

This course develops advanced knowledge and skills in aerospace engineering and prepares you to become a leader, consultant or manager in the aerospace and aviation industries.

You'll learn how to analyse complex engineering assets in the aerospace and aviation environment, and develop engineering, scientific and technological solutions to ensure problem-free operations.

RMIT Advantage

RMIT University is ranked among the world’s top 150 universities in mechanical, aeronautical and manufacturing engineering (2018 QS World University Rankings by Subject).

Prepare to lead the introduction of new technologies and operating practices in advanced manufacturing and a range of other technical industries including mechanical systems design, mechatronics and micro- and nano-technology.

There is a market demand for engineers with advanced skills such as computer-aided design and the ability to develop and implement new processes in lean manufacturing, ensuring innovations can emanate from all levels of the workforce.

With a focus on project-based and multi-disciplinary learning, you'll develop your professional engineering competencies in project management, teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, communication and research.

RMIT Advantage

Access the Engineering Learning Factory, which is located in RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct (AMP). The learning factory is for students and industry and uses a production approach, where all learning is project-based, industry-relevant and where new concepts of manufacturing and design are established and trialled concurrently.
