Objectives of the program

This program is designed to produce graduates who are skilled as both scientists and engineers, who can be involved in the development of new products from the initial laboratory development through to large-scale production.

Articulation and pathways

Under the RMIT articulation pathway scheme, students who have completed a nationally accredited Diploma or Advanced Diploma in a corresponding field of study will be guaranteed an exemption of 96 or 144 credit points of courses (normally equivalent to two or three semesters) respectively in the Bachelor degree program.  Students who can demonstrate academic merit in their performance in the Diploma or Advanced Diploma may be offered exemptions of 144 or 192 credit points (normally equivalent to three or four semesters) respectively.  Note that credit point exemptions may not correspond to complete semesters of work because the articulated program may contain a mixture of courses from different semesters of the standard Bachelor program, in order to ensure effective preparation for core course material at advanced levels in the program.

Students with Diplomas or Advanced Diplomas from a different discipline or other qualifications from any institution, either local or international, will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Pathways from this degree include, Honours, Masters and PhD programs. For specific details of the options available to you, contact your Program Coordinator or Discipline Head
