Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering) (Honours)Career
In an aerospace engineering career you can design aircraft, develop propulsion systems, research new materials, test new engines, develop spacecraft, or plan maintenance programs.
As a graduate from this program you'll be ready to work as a high-level engineer on a wide range of Australian and international projects.
The most likely destinations for graduates are:
- design and manufacturing companies including Boeing Australia, Airbus, BAE Systems Australia, and Australian Aerospace
- defence forces: Royal Australian Navy, Australian Army, and Royal Australian Air Force
- Defence Science and Technology Group and Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group
- Australian and international airlines
- airworthiness organisations: Civil Aviation Safety Authority, Department of Defence
- general aviation
Aerospace engineers also have skills in fields of advanced technology that are in high demand in non-aerospace organisations including the automotive industry, power generation industry, software support companies, and research organisations.
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.
The School of Engineering has strong Australian and international links with the aerospace industry, built up over many years. Key stakeholders in the aerospace industry have participated in the development of the program, and have a continuing role in ensuring that it remains relevant and that graduates have strong career paths.
