About the Course

Mechanical engineering involves the planning, design and development of machinery, solving problems and improving the machines used in everyday life. In the first two years of your mechanical engineering degree, you will learn the fundamentals of engineering sciences, mathematics, engineering design, and engineering professional practice. As you progress, you'll customise your degree by focusing your studies in the general field of mechanical engineering or other areas such as manufacturing, automotive, business, mathematics or computing. 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. Your final-year project will combine and develop the skills and knowledge defined by Engineers Australia - the experience you need to commence your professional engineering career. Degree specialisations: Computer-aided engineering and design Industrial aerodynamics and computational fluid dynamics Energy conservation and renewable energy Mechatronics, dynamics and control
