Melbourne City and Bundoora
This program 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.
The aerospace industry is associated with cutting-edge technology and you'll learn how to find innovative solutions for challenging problems and opportunities from an array of possibilities.
These skills will be gained through systematic problem-solving and engineering/technological systems design methodologies operating in the industry.
RMIT University is ranked among the world’s top 150 universities in mechanical, aeronautical and manufacturing engineering (2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject).
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Most lectures take place at the Melbourne City campus, with some lab classes run at the Bundoora campus.
Some projects in the Master's Research Project course may require travel to the Bundoora campus. Alternative projects based at the Melbourne City campus are available.
A range of learning and teaching approaches is used within this program to develop your capabilities and to assist you in developing skills as an independent and lifelong learner.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional practice. You'll undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional practice.
These may include problem-based learning, assignments and projects, classroom teaching and/or online Blackboard Collaborate sessions, laboratory, research investigations, assessed tutorials or presentations, self-assessment and peer-assessment, and exams.
Industry plays a vital role in the development, delivery and assessment of the program through membership of the Program Advisory Committee (PAC), which comprises industry representatives, academic staff and alumni.
You will undertake activities and interact with industry and communities in real-work contexts or situations. Any or all of these aspects of a work-integrated learning (WIL) experience may be simulated.
WIL has been incorporated into the final year Master's Research Project where you will work on a capstone project. These projects are either directly connected with industry or simulate the situation of a graduate in industry reporting to a supervisor with whom they meet regularly. In cases where the project is directly connected with industry, the industry partner is usually involved in the assessment.
Graduates will be equipped with advanced knowledge and skills to further their career in aerospace engineering, operations or as a consultant in aviation, mechanical engineering and automotive engineering. This could include roles such as:
- a research and development leader introducing new technologies and procedures to address challenges of contemporary aerospace and aviation organisations
- a team leader implementing operational strategies
- an operations manager responsible for the competitive performance of a unit
- a consultant providing specialist technical advice to industry
Professional recognition and accreditation
This program does not yet have accreditation from Engineers Australia. Accreditation will be sought for this program as soon as it is feasible to do so within the accreditation time lines set by Engineers Australia.
You have the opportunity to complete a dual masters’ degree program with FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences in Aachen, Germany.
Under this program, you will have two enrolment options:
- two semesters at RMIT and two semesters at the partner institution
- three semesters at RMIT and one semester at the partner institution
On completion of the program you will be awarded a master's degree from both universities.
Five students per year have the opportunity to undertake the dual masters' award and selection is based on academic merit (cumulative GPA).
