Level of study: Undergraduate


Launch your career in engineering at RMIT

Graduates may work in a range of fields including aerospace, civil and structures, computer and networks, electronics design, electrical systems and automation, mechatronics, mechanical design and product development.

What you will study

Be introduced to the fundamentals of engineering before choosing an area of specialisation.


Accredited by Engineers Australia, this course provides a flexible pathway to an engineering degree.

In the first year, you'll learn fundamental principles of engineering that apply across different areas of engineering. At the end of the first year, you’ll select your major, choosing between:

advanced manufacturing and mechatronics
aerospace engineering
civil engineering
computer and network engineering
electrical and electronics engineering
mechanical engineering

Note: The computer and network engineering major is not available for students who commence this course in the July/midyear intake.

You'll choose subjects relevant to your engineering major and undertake a real-world project to design, develop, and present a product. Upon graduating from this program you may be eligible for entry into the relevant bachelor degree program or you can work in a relevant field.


This degree is aimed at students starting out in a career in engineering. It allows you to specialise in one of seven major engineering disciplines.

Aerospace graduates may work in the aerospace industry as an aircraft maintenance engineer or aerospace design engineer at paraprofessional level.

A civil major will allow you to work in civil and structural fields that include laboratory technicians, research assistants, construction supervisors, or CAD drafts people.

A major in computer and network engineering will allow you to pursue a career in networking, internetworking, IP telephony, network design, or network support.

With a major in electrical and electronics, you can work in electronic design, service engineering, or microprocessor programming.

Students who major in mechanical or advanced manufacturing and mechatronics can work in roles including product design and process, production planner, or automation specialist.
