Gain the skills to integrate advanced digital engineering design and digital manufacturing technologies with product life cycle management.
This program focuses on technologies supporting the entire lifecycle of an engineering product. This incorporates all design aspects for manufacturing and maintenance, and the disassembly, disposal, recycling and reuse of industrial products.
You'll develop the skills to meet the global demand for specialist engineers and industrial designers. The program provides a holistic understanding of the engineering lifecycle management process based in integrated computer aided engineering (CAE) platforms. These platforms are now regarded by industry as best practice.
The application of cutting-edge technical knowledge and expertise in the creation of products and associated services will have strong potential to bring sustainable growth and high economic return.
Created in partnership with industry, this program uses a project-based learning approach that will expose you to advanced CAE concepts and skills. You will use CAE in practical activities and industry-led projects based on 3D real-time life-like learning experiences.
You'll be exposed to state-of-the-art infrastructure at the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct. This facility is equipped with the latest 3D visualisation technology and advanced digital manufacturing machines to realise your designs in physical form. You'll also have access to the supercomputer facilities that are available.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Lectures, tutorial and laboratory sessions are run during the afternoon and evening to fit in with the work commitments of part-time students.
Several learning and teaching approaches are used within this program to develop your capabilities and to assist you in developing skills as an independent and lifelong learner.
These approaches may include classroom teaching and/or online sessions, laboratory sessions, problem-based learning, assignments and projects.
The program will also incorporate a virtual collaborative project-management environment to bring together students from different backgrounds and, where appropriate, suppliers. This community will be able to share ideas and resources and collaborate on common projects in the virtual environment.
This program was created in consultation with industry leaders from:
- BAE Systems Australia
- Advea Engineering
- Futuris Automotive Interiors
- Department of Defence
- Dassault Systèmes
Employment projections by the Australian Government’s Department of Employment predict growth in the sectors of computer system design, operation and maintenance of mechanical and process plant and installations, as well as programs that coordinate manufacturing activities to ensure usage of resources is cost effective.
Graduates will have a comprehensive understanding of product life-cycle management including design, manufacturing, maintenance and recycling of industrial products in a range of industrial settings.
Professional recognition and accreditation
You may be eligible for worldwide industry certification from Dassault Systèmes in key industry software.
RMIT encourages you to aspire to a global career, not just a local one.
Through partner organisations in Europe, Asia and the US, the RMIT International Industry Experience and Research Program (RIIERP) offers workplace training and academic research placements of between six and 12 months.
The program will make use of the links between RMIT, Dassault Systèmes and Memko Pty Ltd to create opportunities for students to carry out their capstone project at local or overseas institutions or companies.
