Bachelor of Engineering - Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours)

RMIT University

At RMIT, electrical and electronic engineering degrees go beyond the theory and put concepts into practice. You'll work on projects to develop skills in the design, development, production, maintenance and operation of all things to do with electricity. This includes generation, distribution and application of electrical energy, and the design and control of electrical and electronic devices and systems to power and automate modern living. As an RMIT electrical and electronic engineering student, you'll have a wide range of options to specialise in various sub-areas of electrical and electronic engineering. You'll have the option of specialising in one area, or picking electives from several areas for a more generalist program. Either way, you'll be industry ready. You'll learn to design and develop electrical systems for the generation, distribution and control of electric power, as well as electronic systems used for computing, communications, industry and entertainment.

Course Fee:

International: $145,920

Entry Requirements:

Current Year 12 prerequisite units 3 and 4-a study score of at least 20 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-You'll learn the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering, including the essential mathematics and physics tailored for electrical and electronic engineers. Project work will develop your high-level technical and design skills. You'll gain communication and teamwork skills, and learn how to be a good leader. Year 3-There are three compulsory courses with a focus on engineering design and research methods for engineers. You will choose four advanced courses from one or more of four main study areas-electrical, electronic, communication and computer and network engineering. Year 4-You'll undertake a major individual engineering design project demonstrating high levels of technical competence and organisational skills as well as exercising enterprise skills. Your final year (capstone) project will develop and reinforce the skills and knowledge you need-as defined by Engineers Australia-to commence your professional engineering career.

Subjects you can Study:

Circuits and electronics, Communication systems, Computer engineering, Computer networks, Control systems, Digital and analogue electronics, Electrical systems, Electronic systems, Photonics, Signal processing, Wireless technologies.

Study Pathways:

Graduates of the RMIT Associate Degree in Engineering Technology with a major in electrical and electronics engineering who achieve a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 out of 4.0 are guaranteed entry with two years of credit (equivalent to 192 credit points). Graduates with a GPA of less than 2.0 can still apply and may be eligible for credit. Graduates of the Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology-Electrical and the Advanced Diploma of Electronics and Communications Engineering who achieve a GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0 may be eligible to receive up to 1.5 years of credit (equivalent 144 credits) if successful in gaining a place. Please note that you will need to complete some courses that are only offered in first semester. While the total number of credits in advanced standing equates to 144 credits points (equivalent to 1.5 years of study), the amount of time required to complete the remaining study may exceed 2.5 years.


This program is fully accredited by Engineers Australia. Graduates of the program 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 15 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.
