About this course

Combine mechanical engineering with business to be prepared for entrepreneurial and managerial roles in industry.

Mechanical engineering involves the conversion and control of energy and motion in machinery and systems.

Mechanical engineers design, analyse and improve products as diverse as refrigerators, washing machines, solar water heaters, pumps, engines, compressors, wind turbines and air-conditioning systems. They apply knowledge of materials, structures, energy and management to the solution of technical problems.

Management involves the planning, organising, coordination and direction of the resources of organisations. Managers draw on technical skills as diverse as accounting and organisational behaviour, and build on personal abilities including analysis and leadership.

Many engineers quickly move into positions of management within organisations. This double degree will give you an advantage, allowing you to advance into positions of responsibility and influence. A business degree will prepare you to operate in complex organisational and economic systems, which are often associated with large engineering projects.

As part of this program 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.
