Bachelor of Engineering - Electrical (Honours) / Bachelor of Business - Management

RMIT University

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

As an RMIT electrical engineering and business management double degree student you'll learn a combination of technical skills for designing solutions for electrical engineering problems, with business management skills to plan, implement and supervise projects. You will gain the skill to design, develop and supervise the manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of electrical systems. You'll create systems for the generation, distribution, utilisation and control of electric power and electronic systems used for computing, communications and other industrial applications. Your creative engineering skills will be backed up with strategic skills for their implementation. These skills are becoming increasingly important to the energy, resource, manufacturing and design sectors. Engineering solutions often involve project work, and the combined skills of this double degree will provide you with an edge in managing projects.

Structure

Years 1, 2 and 3 Your first three years will introduce you to the fundamentals of electrical engineering, including mathematics and physics. The business management component of your studies will include marketing, economics and logistics. You'll also complete a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective in Year 3 or 5. Years 4 and 5 In your final two years, you'll specialise in electrical energy and power systems and complete two major design projects. A large portion of your study will be practical work in laboratories and on computers, where you'll use your design and problem-solving 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.
