Purpose of the Program

The overall objective of this program is to provide you with the skills to become an employable and effective aerospace engineer within a national and international context. It is designed to prepare you for a wide range of career possibilities by developing particular graduate attributes which will be of on-going benefit to you, your industry and society as a whole.

As a graduate of this program, you will have been prepared to practice as an effective, high-level engineer. You will have demonstrated the ability to utilise fundamental knowledge and skills in mathematics and the sciences which underpin engineering. You will have demonstrated sound skills and appropriate understanding of disciplines relevant to aerospace engineering and its practice. You will have demonstrated suitable design skills, appropriate creativity, intellectual discipline, and professional skills relevant to working with others. 

In addition to this, you will have demonstrated the ability to communicate your ideas in a way appropriate to your profession and to the wider community in general. You will also have demonstrated your ability to learn in a self-directed way that will support professional extension in your working life and that will lead you to adapt through technological and social change. Furthermore, you will have demonstrated your ability to investigate complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods.

The Aerospace Engineering program, as a whole, has a real-world focus with a problem-/project-based active learning approach. In your program, you will be exposed to the fundamentals of engineering sciences, engineering design, specialist aerospace engineering courses to expand your knowledge in various streams of expertise. The academic staff members who teach the course are highly-regarded aerospace and mechanical engineering practitioners and, based on the specialist knowledge they offer, the program is designed to provide you with a number of opportunities for industrial interaction.

You will undertake a capstone experience in the final year courses OENG1111 Professional Research Project 1 and OENG1112 Professional Research Project 2, in which you will conduct an independent research project that can be analytical, experimental, design or computational in nature (or some combination).

The program requires in-person attendance, but also takes advantage of the capabilities of the online learning management system that is available to all students and provides scope for collaboration and remote access.

Articulation and pathways


Entry to this program fully depends on your prior completion of a Polytechnic or equivalent diploma in mechanical or closely related engineering. You will be eligible for admission if you have an average grade* 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.

For equivalence to the above entrance requirement, including consideration of relevant work experience, refer to the Entrance Requirements.

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

  • Nanyang Diploma in Aeronautical & Aerospace Technology
  • Nanyang Diploma in Digital & Precision Engineering
  • Nanyang Diploma in Mechatronics
  • Temasek Diploma in Aerospace Engineering
  • Temasek Diploma in Mechatronics
  • Singapore Diploma in Mechanical Engineering
  • Singapore Diploma in Mechatronics and Robotics
  • Singapore Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering
  • Ngee Ann Diploma in Aerospace Technology
  • Ngee Ann Diploma in Mechanical Engineering
  • Ngee Ann Diploma in Automation & Mechatronic Systems
  • Ngee Ann Diploma in Marine & Offshore Technology

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

  • AERO2521 Engineering, Society and Sustainability
  • MATH2264 Engineering Mathematics C
  • MIET2465 Mechanics and Materials 1
  • MIET2462 Applied Thermodynamics

Entrance requirements

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

Applicants with an average grade between 1.5 and 2.0 can be considered in combination with relevant work experience.

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

Other qualifications and relevant work experience 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.
