Develop specialist knowledge in the environmental engineering fields of design, infrastructure planning, water engineering, sustainability, project management and transport engineering.
The Master of Engineering (Environmental Engineering) will develop advanced knowledge and skills in environmental engineering to enhance your career prospects in relevant industries.
You will develop specialist technical capabilities in:
- water treatment engineering
- water resource systems optimisation
- advanced technologies for wastewater reclamation infrastructure
- urban hydrology
- humanitarian engineering
You'll gain skills that will allow you to step up as a project leader, consultant or manager with the knowledge to lead the introduction of new technologies and operating practices in environmental engineering.
You'll also develop extensive knowledge in environmental engineering and related technologies combined with advanced oral and written communication, teamwork, design, project management and research skills. You will enhance your professional skills in management, leadership and business enterprise.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
This program incorporates blended learning, which includes face-to-face teaching and intensive and e-learning delivery modes.
You will also undertake comprehensive laboratory work and industry visits. Through the laboratory program you will use specialist equipment in environmental engineering for both testing and researching problems and solutions.
Through common core courses you will engage with the wider engineering community, enhancing your experience and enabling cross-disciplinary learning.
You'll have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
The program includes exposure to a range of Australian and international companies through industry visits.
Industry plays a vital role in the development, delivery and assessment of the program through input and membership on the Program Advisory Committee (PAC), which comprises experienced industry representatives as well as academic staff and RMIT alumni.
The program also facilitates networking opportunities with fellow engineering masters students from a range of disciplines and industries.
Environmental engineers work on projects including environmental impact studies, energy conservation, sustainability, pollution control and humanitarian engineering.
There is a growing need to better understand and more effectively integrate the environmental factors that are part of modern living and environmental engineers will play an important role in achieving this balance.
Graduates of the Master of Engineering (Environmental Engineering) will be sought in Australia and overseas, mainly Southeast Asia and East Asia.
There is steady employment of environmental engineers in Australia in the water and hydrology sectors, construction, infrastructure and mining industries.
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 timelines set by Engineers Australia.
