    About the School

    School of Engineering

    The School of Engineering is one of the largest Engineering Schools in Australia. It has over 350 staff and

    7000 students, including 750 HDR students. The School is committed to driving innovation and collaboration through our industry partnerships. Our industry partners range from small companies to multinational organisations and we work together on translating our research into impact for our partners and the wider community.

    In April 2024, the School will transition to the following Departments:

    • Aerospace Engineering

    • Biomedical Engineering

    • Chemical and Environmental Engineering

    • Civil and Infrastructure Engineering

    • Electrical and Electronic Engineering

    This transition to Departments forms part of a new strategic direction for the School. This will see an increasing emphasis on engagement with industry and other external partners. The School is developing new industry led degrees, where our students learn whilst working for companies, as well as innovation hubs where we will collocate industry partners, our research teams and our undergraduate students.

    Over the next three to five years the School of Engineering will support these new strategic plans through investments in new facilities. This will include reimaging our teaching laboratories, where we will use new digital technologies to enhance the student experience, as well as research labs where partnerships with industry will enable us to maintain leading research facilities. The STEM College is also developing plans for a large new budling in the Melbourne City Campus, and the School of Engineering is expected to take significant space in this new building.

    RMIT is a global university and the School of Engineering has students and research partners across South East Asia and Europe. This includes two campuses in Vietnam, as well as partnerships in Hong Kong, Singapore and we recently entered into a partnership with the Birla Institute of Technology and Science in India. The School also has a research centre in Barcelona, which provides access to European funding and industry partners. The School will continue to grow our international activities with the aim of becoming a globally connected School that translates technologies and training across continents.
