Course details

CRICOS course code: 079780C

Level of study: Undergraduate


This course 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 relevant to the aerospace, automative, food processing and electronics industries, and oversee the development of large-scale, global manufacturing facilities.

With knowledge and skills in both engineering and business, you will be uniquely placed to succeed within the globalised engineering economy. You'll graduate ready to work in leading national and international companies. This course will prepare you for a wide range of career possibilities and you'll be able to work across a variety of positions within the engineering industry as a technical expert who has an appreciation of the financial side of technology innovation.

As an RMIT graduate, you'll demonstrate skills across engineering, mechatronics, design, finance and global businesses and be able to communicate your unique ideas to others, as well as continue to learn as a professional engineer.

Your studies will include areas such as electronic system design, machine intelligence and robotics - combined with finance, the global economy and business management. You will be able to take a broader view of engineering systems, utilising your knowledge of markets and management.

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.

A feature of this course is the access you'll have to state-of-the-art facilities such as the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct which combines RMIT's expertise in technology and design innovation.

To ensure you graduate job-ready, you’ll also have an opportunity to undertake a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective.
