Gain a specialised knowledge of advancements in electronic engineering that can be applied to a variety of industries and technologies with this Electronic Engineering program at RMIT University.   

Visit the official programme website for more information


As part of this course you will study courses that go beyond the theory of recent engineering developments.

Areas of study include:

  • electronic circuit design
  • integrated circuit design and fabrication
  • embedded electronics 
  • electronics control systems 
  • computer systems electronics
  • microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) 
  • micro/nanoscale device design and fabrication
  • sensors and actuators

The Electronic Engineering program at RMIT University  also has a focus on developing your technical, personal and business skills. As a result, you will be well equipped for leadership roles in business and industry. Qualified technologists with relevant industrial experience are encouraged to apply.


As the electronics industry grows in Australia and internationally, there will be a demand for high level graduates with up-to-date technical skills, combined with personal and business skills. Some of our recent graduates have gone onto work for Telstra, Optus, TPG, iiNET, Huawei, DJI, Hikvision, State Grid, Dahua Technology, (China) and TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Limited).

In the private sector, you may work in the design, manufacture and supply of electronic products; in energy, systems and services as technical experts; and as business managers and executive officers. You may also choose to establish their own business operating in the local and international electronic market.

The development of the Internet of Things will see an explosion in the range of small electronic devices required to convert our cities to smart cities. Electronic engineers will play a key role in these exciting new developments.

In the public sector, electronic engineers work on essential services such as telecommunications, transportation, security, defense, health, emergency services and the environment.
