External accreditation and industry links

This program will be fully accredited by Engineers Australia. Graduates of the program are eligible for graduate membership of Engineers Australia. Corporate membership may be obtained after an appropriate period of professional practice.

The Washington Accord is an agreement amongst engineering professional bodies of Australia, Canada, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, UK and US. Based on the Accord, the qualifications of graduates of RMIT Engineering programs that are fully accredited by Engineers Australia are also recognised by the other countries as being substantially equivalent to accredited or recognised qualifications within its own jurisdiction.

The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), based in Rugby, UK is the primary international professional society for the chemical engineer. All RMIT chemical engineering degrees will fully satisfy the requirement for accreditation at the (UK) MEng level. The Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical Engineering)(Honours) programs fulfil the requirements for full membership of Engineers Australia. The program has strong links with industry. Students undertake one week of work in industry in Year 3. Guest lecturers from industry join classes throughout the program. Research projects in Year 4 may be based on an industry project and design projects in year 4 are based on industry input thus providing opportunities for work integrated learning. Students visit industry sites throughout the program.
