The Master of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) provides you with the skills to work as a designer, technical specialist, consultant or manager.
You will develop the knowledge to lead the implementation of new technologies and operating practices and systems in process, automotive, manufacturing, mining, energy and infrastructure-oriented businesses.
You will develop specialist knowledge in:
- advanced CAE
- advanced dynamics
- solid mechanics
- advanced thermo fluids
You will build high-level technical knowledge and appropriate professional skills such as management, leadership and business enterprise.
Developments in the energy, mining, automotive and manufacturing industries are driving the need for mechanical engineers with advanced skills in the latest technologies.
With a focus on project-based and multi-disciplinary learning you will develop your professional engineering competencies in teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, communication and research.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Some project work may be held on the Bundoora campus.
This program incorporates blended learning which includes face-to-face teaching and intensive and e-learning delivery modes.
You will undertake a comprehensive program of supervised laboratory work and industry projects with relevant organisations. The laboratory program will allow you to use specialist equipment and systems in mechanical engineering for both analysing and researching problems and solutions.
Through common core courses you will engage with the wider engineering community, enhancing your cohort experience and enabling multi-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 projects and may include site visits.
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.
Notable industry links for this program include:
- Ford Australia
- Futuris Automotive Interiors.
The program also facilitates networking opportunities with fellow engineering masters students from a range of disciplines and industries.
Students have access to the Engineering Learning Factory w
Graduates will find employment in mechanical engineering fields including construction, energy, infrastructure, mining, building services and food processing.
Employers seek mechanical engineers across all areas from mechanical systems design, advanced manufacturing and mechatronics to micro- and nano-technology.
Professional recognition and accreditation
Engineers Australia accreditation will be sought for this program in accordance with accreditation timelines.
As part of the Master of Engineering (Mechanical), you can apply to complete a dual masters' degree program. You will spend two semesters at RMIT and two semesters at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, earning a master's degree from each university.
