Are you ready to find better ways to power the modern world? In this Electrical Engineering (Honours) program at RMIT University, you'll learn the processes behind the production and distribution of electricity.   

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Electrical Engineering (Honours) program at RMIT University is about more than just learning the theories behind the discipline, it’s about being able to put those theories into practice in order to solve problems.  

You’ll learn the skills necessary to make useful products and provide quality services by spending time on experiments in laboratory classes and designing projects.

You’ll learn to design, develop and supervise the manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of electrical systems. You’ll also work on systems for the generation, distribution, utilisation, and control of electric power and electronic systems used for a variety of domestic and industrial applications.

You’ll develop high-level technical and design skills and focus on a specialist area such as energy conversion, power systems or high-voltage equipment.

Prepare yourself for employment

With the opportunity to undertake industry placements either locallly or internationally, you'll be work-ready when you graduate. There are also opportunities to tackle research projects in partnership with industry, like the Engineers Without Borders Challenge.

Industry-relevant experience 

You will have a number of opportunities for industry interaction during your studies including work placements and industry-based projects. Our teachers are experienced practitioners and we collaborate closely with industry to ensure our electrical engineering degree meets the needs of the workplace.

A globally accredited qualification 

As a graduate, you will be eligible for membership of Engineers Australia, and your qualification will be recognised by all 18 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, the Washington Accord. These include the USA, UK, China, New Zealand, Japan, Korea and Singapore.


Electrical engineers work on the systems for the generation, distribution, utilisation and control of electric power systems. They drive the transition to alternative and renewable energy sources.

After graduating you may work in areas of industry such as:

  • power generation and distribution
  • mining and resources
  • industrial systems design
  • consumer product design
  • process control industries
  • electrified transportation
  • manufacturing
  • automotive
  • defence

Work opportunities are available in Australia and overseas, designing and supervising projects to implement new technologies in small and large organisations.

The leadership skills you learn from project work will also help prepare you for management roles.

Graduates have gone on to work at a range of organisations including:

  • AusNet Services
  • United Energy
  • Beca
  • Schneider Electric
  • Greensync
  • Metro
  • Robert Bosch
  • Ford Australia
  • Woodside Energy
