About this course

Through this program, you’ll learn how to protect, restore and create engineered and natural systems that are socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable.

With climate change a matter of national and international importance, a demand has arisen for engineers able to conceive and develop sustainable systems. The consumption of natural resources and energy in areas such as transport, building, and other areas are part of this need.

Sustainable systems engineering brings together the new technologies and innovative engineering approaches needed for sustainable global development.

As part of this program you’ll undertake a broad range of studies, graduating with the skills to design engineering solutions which meet the needs of society within economic and ecological constraints.

Your studies will focus on the development of a sustainable systems approach, combining the fundamentals of engineering sciences, mathematics and engineering design. Program specialisations exist in energy, or transport and logistics.

Why study sustainable systems engineering at RMIT?

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.
