Overview

Master of Engineering (International Automotive Engineering)

Gain the skills to be a technological leader capable of managing innovation in automotive design and manufacturing settings. 

Designed to meet the needs of the global automotive industry, you’ll develop the skills to take a leading role in automotive engineering design, control systems, numerical simulations, manufacturing and testing using contemporary engineering methods and computational and experimental tools.

During your studies, you will have the flexibility to specialise in either advanced automotive design and development or automotive manufacturing.

You’ll use advanced computer-aided engineering software such as LS-DYNA and gain hands-on experience in several state-of-the-art experimental facilities, including the full-scale Vehicle Wind Tunnel, Driverless Vehicles Lab, Green Engines Research Laboratory and Vehicle NVH Laboratory.

The program also promotes hands-on practice by incorporating a course project that will enable you to apply the learned technologies to a real-world automotive system application.

The program focuses on sustainable design and manufacturing practices based on the entire lifecycle (from 'cradle to grave') of vehicles. 

This incorporates the design for disposal and recycle, disassembly, lifecycle assessment, alternative fuels and powertrains and light structures.

You’ll develop a comprehensive understanding of the product lifecycle and systems design of modern automobiles and associated technologies. 

This understanding is developed through project-based learning involving real-life problems in cooperation with industry both locally and internationally. 

You’ll have the opportunity to complete work experience with multinational companies, enhancing your employment opportunities in the global job market. 

There are also exchange opportunities between RMIT and universities worldwide, including options for dual-master awards.

In this program, you'll complete specific course(s) that focus on work-integrated learning (WIL).

The capstone Master's Research Project, which is undertaken in second year, involves WIL through an industry-relevant project.

Multiple campuses

Most lectures take place at the Melbourne City campus, with some practical classes running at the Bundoora campus.

Some projects in the Master Research Project course may require travel to the Bundoora campus. Alternative projects based at the Melbourne City campus are available.

Note: You will not need to pay any application fee but some of African countries will need to deposit of AU$100 application fee.
