External accreditation and industry links

This program is fully accredited by the Engineers Australia and by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Graduates of the program are eligible for graduate membership of each organisation. Corporate membership may be obtained after an appropriate period of professional practice.

The Washington Accord is an agreement amongst Eng. 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 Eng. programs that are fully accredited by Engineers Australia and HKIE are also recognised by the other countries as being substantially equivalent to accredited or recognised qualifications within its own jurisdiction.

The school and its offshore partner (VTC, Hong Kong), have extensive links with industry, particularly through research projects, and consulting.  In a number of cases industry has provided direct support by donating laboratory equipment.

You may be able to undertake an industry sponsored design project in your final two semesters (as part of Engineering Design 4A and 4B).
