Industrial design links industry and economy with people, culture, society and environment, while mechanical engineering involves the conversion and control of energy and motion in machinery and systems.
This combined degree allows the integration of these highly complementary disciplines.
You’ll have the opportunity to design creative solutions through inspiring and sustainable design-and-build projects, as well as taking part in the Engineers Without Borders Challenge - a humanitarian-focused course offered in all RMIT engineering degrees.
To ensure you graduate job-ready, you’ll also have an opportunity to undertake a work-integrated learning (industry experience) elective.
Graduates of this Mechanical Engineering (Honours) - Industrial Design (Honours) program at RMIT University will be ready for work in mechanical and industrial design areas such as biomedical, automotive, and electro-mechanical product design.
Graduates have found that the combination of lateral thinking and creative problem-solving fostered by the Industrial Design courses, with the design rigour and logical frameworks of the Mechanical Design Degree, are a valuable combination for employers.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) (Honours)/Bachelor of Industrial Design (Honours) is fully accredited by Engineers Australia.
