About this course

Gain the fundamental knowledge and principles necessary for a career in electrical and electronic engineering.

Electrical engineers devise solutions to generate and use electrical power efficiently and cleanly, while electronic engineers design, implement and maintain electronic devices and systems, including those found in communications, defence, hospitals, and more.

In this program your study will include the generation, distribution and application of electrical energy, and the design and control of the electrical and electronic devices and systems required to power and improve life for people and communities.

You'll have a wide range of options to specialise in various sub-areas of electrical and electronic engineering, including:

  • generation, distribution and conversion of electrical energy
  • control systems
  • analogue and digital electronics
  • power electronics and drives
  • communications and network engineering
  • computer engineering and embedded systems
  • audio signal processing
  • image processing
  • biomedical signal processing
  • sensors and measurement technologies
  • instrumentation
  • biomedical electronics and engineering

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.

Entry requirements

The highest level of education you have previously completed will determine which category applies to you.

Entry to this program is competitive. Applicants are ranked and selected in order of merit based on their academic achievement, e.g., ATAR or GPA (including any adjustments).

Applicants with recent secondary education (current or within the past two years)

Successful completion of an Australian Year 12 senior secondary certificate of education or equivalent in 2016, 2017 or 2018. If applicable, this includes equity access schemes and any other adjustment factors.

School Network Access Program (SNAP)

The SNAP access scheme is designed to increase tertiary access and participation of eligible students from SNAP partner schools.

Applicants with Vocational Education and Training study

Satisfactory completion of an Australian Certificate IV or above or equivalent.

Applicants with Higher Education study

Satisfactory completion of at least four courses (subjects) at an Australian undergraduate level or overseas equivalent.

Applicants with Work and Life Experience

Satisfactory completion of an Australian Year 12 senior secondary certificate of education or equivalent more then two years ago.

You must sit the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) Multiple Choice if:

  • You have no prior Year 12, VET qualifications, HE results or relevant work experience that meet the minimum entry requirements for the program; and
  • You are 19 years of age or over (as of 1 Jan 2019) and have not enrolled in secondary studies for at least two years.

The STAT Multiple Choice will satisfy Year 12 English and Year 11 Mathematics prerequisites. Applicants must meet all other prerequisites or equivalents. Learn more about RMIT STAT results.
