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.
