Purpose of the Program

The purpose of this program is to:

  • provide learning experiences that provide you, as a graduate of this program, with the knowledge and skills essential for a professional career in electrical engineering,
  • prepare you, on graduation from this program, to be ready to take up employment in electrical engineering, power generation and distribution and related industries.  The related industries include the aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, computing, resources, defence, and primary industries.

You will undertake a capstone experience in the final year courses EEET2555 Engineering Design 4A and EEET2556 Engineering Design 4B, in which you will conduct an independent research project that can be analytical, experimental, design or computational in nature (or some combination).

This program is primarily delivered in face-to-face mode at Kaplan Singapore.

Articulation and pathways


Entry to this program fully depends on your prior completion of a Polytechnic or equivalent diploma in electrical or closely related engineering. You will be eligible for admission if you have an grade point average* of 2.0 out of 4.0 or above. Once you are admitted to the program, you will be granted credit transfer of 192 credit points (equivalent to two years) from the four year, 384 credit point degree.

The following Diploma programs have been recognised as the main pathways - each eligible for the equivalent of two years of credit transfer:

  • Singapore Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Nanyang Diploma in Electrical Engineering with Eco-Design
  • Ngee Ann Diploma in Electrical Engineering
  • Ngee Ann Diploma in Electronic and Computer Engineering
  • Temasek Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Other qualifications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis by RMIT. 

Credit will be granted for the following first and second year RMIT courses:

  • MATH2334 Engineering Mathematics A
  • EEET2551 Engineering Computing 1
  • EEET2546 Electrical Engineering Practice
  • EEET2545 Electrical Engineering Analysis
  • EEET2539 Circuit Theory
  • EEET2542 Digital Systems Design 1
  • PHYS2166 Physics 1
  • MATH2335 Mathematics for ECE
  • EEET2544 Electrical Engineering 1
  • EEET2549 Electronics
  • EEET2557 Introduction to Embedded Systems
  • EEET2552 Engineering Design 2
  • 2 x Student Electives
  • 1 x Electrical Elective
  • EEET2540 Communication Engineering 1  OR
    EEET2558 Network Fundamentals and Applications


If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program (for example, through prior studies or work experience), you can apply for credit once you have enrolled in this program. There is information on the RMIT University website about how to apply for Credit:


Pathways refer to related programs for which you may be eligible once you have graduated from your current program.  As a successful graduate of this program, you may (upon application) be eligible to proceed to a coursework Masters degree in Electronic Engineering or related fields, or even to a research degree including Masters by Research or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).  Acceptance into these programs would be subject to each program's entry requirements.

Entrance requirements

The academic entry requirement for the program is successful completion of a related three-year Polytechnic Diploma or an Advanced Diploma in electrical or closely related engineering qualification approved by RMIT, with an grade point average* of 2.0 out of 4.0 or above. For each intake, students apply for the program through Kaplan, Singapore.

Successful applicants are granted 192 credit points in credit transfer, equivalent to two years of the four-year program. 

Other qualifications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis by RMIT. This will include English language requirements where the approved qualification was offered in a language other than English. For more information on RMIT’s English entry requirements, see the English equivalents page. English entry requirements may be waived on a case-by-case basis where applicants provide evidence that they have been working for some time at a high level in an organisation where English is the medium of communication.

External accreditation and industry links

External Accreditation
The Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) (Honours) is not currently accredited, although it has been developed to align with the Engineers Australia accreditation framework. Engineers Australia is the professional body in Australia responsible for the accreditation of higher education programs that prepare students to practise as professional engineers. Graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) (Honours) may be eligible to apply for membership of Engineers Australia via a Stage 1 Competency Assessment.

Industry Links
The School of Engineering has extensive links with industry, particularly through research projects, and consulting. The School has a Program Advisory Committee, which is an important link to industry. Membership includes senior engineers from a number of major international companies and government and non-government organisations. The committee provides comments and advice on the contents of the School's programs. You may be able to undertake an industry sponsored design project in your final year (as part of EEET2555 Engineering Design 4A and EEET2556 Engineering Design 4B).
