RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work.
You will have access to online resources through various student systems, including Canvas, the University’s Learning Management System..
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 will 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 will work with industry leaders to solve a project challenge.
Before graduating from this degree, you are strongly encouraged to complete a minimum of 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 end of your fourth year.
