The term 'aerospace' encompasses both atmospheric and space flight. The industry is complex and demanding requiring talented, creative and motivated people.
Many engineers quickly move into positions of management within organisations. This double degree will give you an advantage, allowing you to progress into positions of responsibility and influence. A business degree will prepare you to operate in a complex financial system - something often associated with large engineering projects.
Aerospace engineering is concerned with the analysis, design and operation of sophisticated aerospace hardware and software systems. The management curriculum is concerned with organisational planning, coordination and resource direction.
Managers draw on technical skills ranging from accounting to organisational behaviour, and they are reliant on analysis and leadership skills. To succeed in this degree, you'll need well-developed skills in mathematics and physical sciences, as well as good communication skills.
You’ll have the opportunity to design creative solutions through inspiring and sustainable design-and-build projects, as well as taking part in the Engineers Without Borders Challenge - a humanitarian-focused course offered in all RMIT engineering degrees.
To ensure you graduate job-ready, you’ll also have an opportunity to undertake a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective.
