About this course

Develop your advanced engineering skills and contribute to industry-focused research projects, identifying solutions to electrical and electronic engineering problems.

The School of Engineering has research strengths in:

  • biomedical engineering
  • communication technologies
  • complex systems and information processing
  • micro/nano materials and devices
  • power, energy and control

Much of RMIT's electrical and electronic engineering research is conducted in the following Research Centres and Research Groups:

  • Communication Technologies Research Centre (CTRC)
  • Centre for Advanced Electronics and Sensors (CADES)
  • Functional Materials and Microsystems Group

RMIT also hosts the following nodes of research:

  • ARC Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS)
  • Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research, an NHMRC Centre of Excellence in Electromagnetic Bioeffects

The MicroNano Research Facility (MNRF) supports these research centres and groups.

In the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia assessment, electrical and electronic engineering at RMIT was ranked at 'well above world standard'. In the 2015 QS world rankings we are ranked in the top 100 universities in the world in this area based on academic reputation, research citations and employer satisfaction.

Entry requirements

The minimum requirements for admission to a master by research program are:

  • a bachelor degree requiring at least four years of full-time study in a relevant discipline awarded with honours. The degree should include a research component comprised of a thesis, other research projects or research methodology courses that constitute at least 25% of a full-time academic year (or part-time equivalent). The applicant must have achieved at least a credit average in the final year; or
  • evidence of appropriate academic qualifications and/or experience that satisfies the Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research Training and Development or nominee that the applicant has developed knowledge of the field of study or cognate field and the potential for research sufficient to undertake the proposed program.

At RMIT a grade of credit represents academic achievement of 60% or higher.
