RMIT University

Bachelor of Engineering (Computer and Network Engineering) (Honours)

RMIT University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00122A

At RMIT, computer and network engineering are taught together to provide graduates with the opportunity to work in their preferred field. You will learn and implement the fundamental technologies behind computerised, smart and intelligent digital systems used in modern life. The degree allows you to focus your skills on a range of computer systems and network engineering topics ranging from the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, sensor networks, high-performance parallel processing, real-time embedded hardware control and data communication networks. You will learn the fundamental topics in both computer and network engineering fields and then choose to specialise in either area to ensure that you graduate work-ready. You'll gain the knowledge and skills to find better solutions to challenges in design, construction and maintenance of software and hardware components of computing and computer-controlled devices, equipment and systems. This could include communication networks and automation of electrical and electronic systems; audio and visual information acquisition, processing and communications; human-machine interaction, industrial or medical instrumentation and monitoring; and provision of security for computer systems and networks.

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.

Study pathways

Graduates of the RMIT Associate Degree in Engineering Technology with a major in electrical and electronics engineering or a major in computer and network 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). 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 192 credit points (equivalent to two years of study), the amount of time required to complete the remaining study may exceed two years. Graduates with a GPA of less than 2.0 can still apply and may be eligible for credit. Graduates of the RMIT Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems Engineering who achieve a GPA of at least 3.0 out of 4.0 may be eligible for 1.5 years of credit (equivalent of 144 credits) if successful in gaining a place.
