Gain the fundamental knowledge and principles necessary for a career in electrical and electronic engineering.
Electrical engineers devise solutions to generate and use electrical power efficiently and cleanly, while electronic engineers design, implement and maintain electronic devices and systems, including those found in communications, defence, hospitals, and more.
In this program your study will include the generation, distribution and application of electrical energy, and the design and control of the electrical and electronic devices and systems required to power and improve life for people and communities.
You'll have a wide range of options to specialise in various sub-areas of electrical and electronic engineering, including:
- generation, distribution and conversion of electrical energy
- control systems
- analogue and digital electronics
- power electronics and drives
- communications and network engineering
- computer engineering and embedded systems
- audio signal processing
- image processing
- biomedical signal processing
- sensors and measurement technologies
- biomedical electronics and engineering
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.
Why study electrical and electronic engineering at RMIT?
RMIT University is ranked in the top 100 universities in the world for engineering (electrical and electronic). Studying the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) (Honours) at RMIT offers the following benefits:
- Prepare yourself for employment
With at least 12 weeks of industry placements undertaken locally or internationally, you'll be work-ready when you graduate. There are also opportunities to tackle research projects in partnership with industry, like the Engineers Without Borders Challenge.
- A flexible degree tailored for you
You will have a wide range of options to specialise in various sub-areas of electrical and electronic engineering.
- A globally accredited qualification
As a graduate, you will be eligible for membership of Engineers Australia, and your qualification will be recognised by all 18 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, the Washington Accord. These include the USA, UK, China, New Zealand, Japan, Korea and Singapore.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
In the final year of your studies you'll undertake a major project that is either industry-based or simulates an industrial situation. Combining and further developing the key theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for your field, as defined by Engineers Australia, you’ll work with industry leaders to solve a project challenge.
Before graduating from this program, you are strongly encouraged to complete a minimum 12 weeks of engineering industry experience. This allows you to gain first-hand experience in a real-world environment under the supervision of a practising professional engineer. The nature and timing of this experience can take a range of forms.
Opportunities exist for an overseas work placement of between six and 12 months (this satisfies the work experience requirement). These placements are normally taken during a one-year break in the middle or at the end of the third year of the program.
As an RMIT engineering student, you’ll have opportunities to engage with industry from the beginning of your degree.
Through work placements, industry projects, internships, seminars and events, you'll be in contact with industry every step of the way.
You'll have the chance to do 12 weeks’ work experience, research projects in collaboration with industry and the opportunity to work overseas with leading organisations.
Career opportunities in this field includes work in a range of industries including:
- electrical supply industry
- government departments
- health and medical
- power generation
- public transport
- renewable energy
- robotics and automation
- tech startups
Professional recognition and accreditation
This program is fully accredited by Engineers Australia. Graduates of the program are eligible for graduate membership of Engineers Australia. Full membership as a professional engineer may be obtained after an appropriate period of professional practice.
Australia is one of 15 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, also known as the Washington Accord, for professional engineers. The qualification of graduates from this degree is recognised in all countries that are signatories to the Accord.
RMIT encourages you to aspire to a global career, not just a local one, and as an engineering student you’ll have a range of global opportunities.
Through partner organisations in Europe, Asia and the United States, the RMIT International Industry Experience and Research Program (RIIERP) offers workplace training and academic research placements of between six and 12 months.
There are also opportunities to study abroad through Education Abroad.
