About this course

Combine engineering skill in telecommunications with the science and application of physics to take a leading role in new device and product development.

Telecommunications systems can employ a wide range of technologies, including optical fibre communication systems, wireless communication systems (such as 4G mobile and WiFi), the Internet, cable systems and satellite communications.

Your studies in this area will develop knowledge and skills to design, build and manage systems that transfer, store and manage information via wireless, cable, optical fibre, and satellite communications. In your fourth and fifth years, you’ll be able to specialise in either communication engineering or network engineering.

In the physics component of this double degree, you’ll be trained in the fundamentals of natural phenomena and their applications (e. g. fields and waves, quantum mechanics, radiation physics, thermodynamics, nuclear physics, solid state physics, astrophysics and cosmology).

Your studies in physics will both add to your knowledge of the forces that underpin the engineering environment, and allow you to go further in developing innovative new solutions.

The program is taught by experts in their fields. Experiments are extensively used to consolidate theories. A strong focus on research and design ensures graduates are highly competent professionals.

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.
