During your studies, you will have the flexibility to specialise in either advanced automotive design and development or automotive manufacturing.
You’ll use advanced computer-aided engineering software such as LS-DYNA and gain hands-on experience in several state-of-the-art experimental facilities, including the full-scale Vehicle Wind Tunnel, Driverless Vehicles Lab, Green Engines Research Laboratory and Vehicle NVH Laboratory.
The Master of Engineering (International Automotive Engineering) also promotes hands-on practice by incorporating a project that will enable you to apply the learned technologies to a real-world automotive system application.
This degree focuses on sustainable design and manufacturing practices based on the entire lifecycle (from 'cradle to grave') of vehicles. This incorporates the design for disposal and recycle, disassembly, lifecycle assessment, alternative fuels and powertrains and light structures.
You’ll develop a comprehensive understanding of the product lifecycle and systems design of modern automobiles and associated technologies. This understanding is developed through project-based learning involving real-life problems in cooperation with industry both locally and internationally.
You’ll have the opportunity to complete work experience with multinational companies, enhancing your employment opportunities in the global job market. There are also exchange opportunities between RMIT and universities worldwide, including options for dual-master awards.
