Combine expertise in the design and manufacture mechanical devices and provide solutions, with the business know-how to succeed in the international market.
This program combines the latest in mechatronics technologies, systems engineering and additive manufacturing with international business studies and high-level financial and economic analysis.
You'll learn to design, build and operate smart systems in aerospace, automotive, food processing and electronics industries, and oversee the development of large-scale, global manufacturing facilities.
With studies in international business you'll be able to perform high-level financial and economic analyses with a global perspective.
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.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions, and syndicate work.
You'll have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
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 an engineering practice environment under the supervision of a practising professional engineer. The nature and timing of this engineering 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 degree.
RMIT's strong industry partnerships provide valuable connections and directly influence our degrees. Programs and teaching are also shaped by an industry-led Program Advisory Committee. This ensures you'll always be learning the most relevant and in-demand skills needed in the workplace.
Graduates with engineering and international business skills will advance their careers quickly and may find work in multinational companies as executives insupply chain and procurement.
Engineering-related roles include project manager, production manager and director of operations.
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. Once it is fully accredited, graduates with this qualification will be 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.
Student exchange programs are available with overseas universities such as Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
There are also opportunities to study abroad through Education Abroad.
