Bachelor of Engineering - Aerospace Engineering (Honours)

RMIT University

RMIT is a national leader in aerospace engineering, with long-standing industry connections and expertise in education and research. In this industry-focused course you'll gain specialist skills in the analysis, design, and operation of sophisticated aerospace hardware and software. You'll study a range of topics such as aerodynamics, aerospace materials and structures, aerospace systems, design, dynamics and control, thermodynamics, and propulsion. Elective studies will allow you to tailor the course to suit your areas of interest and enhance your career opportunities. A practical focus combined with strong industry links ensures you'll be job-ready. There will be multiple opportunities for hands-on learning in well-equipped laboratories. You'll have the option to gain real world experience through work experience. As an aerospace engineer you'll design aircraft, develop propulsion systems, research new materials, test new engines, design spacecraft, or plan maintenance programs.

Course Fee:

International: $142,080

Entry Requirements:

Current Year 12 prerequisite units 3 and 4 - a study score of at least 25 in one of Mathematical Methods (any) or Specialist Mathematics; and a study score of at least 25 in any English (except EAL) or at least 30 in English (EAL).


Years 1 and 2 - Studying in the Melbourne City campus, you'll gain a solid understanding of engineering, including studies in engineering, maths and mechanics. Year 3 - Your studies will move to the Bundoora campus so you can utilise specialist facilities. You'll deepen your knowledge in aerospace engineering, while getting the opportunity undertake elective studies so you can tailor the program to suit your areas of interest and enhance your career opportunities. Year 4 - You'll put theory into practice through a major professional research project, in which you will plan your research project, conduct a critical review of relevant published material, complete your research project, evaluate information, and report your findings. This is a work-integrated project done either in conjunction with industry or in a simulated engineering work environment. You'll also continue to select aerospace engineering electives.

Subjects you can Study:

Aerodynamics, Aerospace engineering, Aerospace maintenance, Aerospace science and spacecraft, Aircraft design, Aircraft systems, Aviation, Computer modelling, Mechanics (applied), Mechanics (flight), Mechanics (fluid), Mechanics (solids), Mechanics (structural).

Study Pathways:

Graduates of the RMIT Associate Degree in Engineering Technology with a major in aerospace engineering who achieve a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 out of 4.0 are guaranteed entry with two years' credit (equivalent to 192 credit points). Graduates of the RMIT Advanced Diploma in Engineering (Aeronautical) with a GPA of at least 3.0 out of 4.0 may be able to receive up to 1.5 years' credit (equivalent of 144 credit points) if successful in gaining a place.

Further information:

Most graduates enter the industry immediately upon completion of their studies. Aerospace engineers graduate with skills in various fields of advanced technology which are in demand in non-aerospace organisations.


This program is fully accredited by Engineers Australia. Graduates are eligible for graduate membership of Engineers Australia. Full membership as a professional engineer may be obtained after an appropriate period of professional practice. Australia is one of 18 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, also known as the Washington Accord, for professional engineers. The qualification of graduates from this degree is recognised in all countries that are signatories to the Accord.

Founded in 1887, RMIT became a university in 1992. It offers both higher education and vocational education courses with over 82,000 students including 31,160 international students, of whom 18,860 are taught outside Australia (almost 7,000 at RMIT Vietnam).

Over 900 courses exist to graduate at all levels, including certificates, diplomas, advanced diplomas and associate, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. RMIT University is a global university of technology and design offering areas of study including: aerospace and aviation; architecture, building and planning; art and design; business; communication; community and welfare; computing and information systems; education and training; engineering and related technologies; environment; health sciences; humanities, social sciences and legal; manufacturing and processing; and science and mathematics.

RMIT has three campuses in Melbourne, Australia, with smaller sites at Hamilton and Point Cook. Main campus in Melbourne's CBD is spread over a number of Melbourne city blocks. There are art galleries, cinemas, bookshops and cafes on campus. The Brunswick campus is six kilometres from the city and offers state-of-the-art specialist graphic technology, fashion and textile facilities - with access to the on-campus International Fibre Centre. The Bundoora campus is set in extensive parklands and offers courses in life sciences, education and manufacturing/mechanical engineering.

RMIT also two campuses in Vietnam and a centre in Barcelona, Spain. They also offer programs through partners in Singapore, Hong Kong, mainland China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Belgium, Spain and Germany, and enjoy research and industry partnerships on every continent.

RMIT was awarded the Premier's Award for International Education and the award for Excellence in the inaugural Victorian International Education Awards.
