Designed to meet the needs of the global automotive industry, you’ll develop the skills to take a leading role in automotive engineering design, manufacturing and testing using contemporary engineering methods and computational and experimental tools.
You have the flexibility to specialise in either advanced automotive design and development or automotive manufacturing.
You will use advanced computer-aided engineering software such as LS-DYNA and Abaqus and gain hands-on experience in several state-of-the-art experimental facilities, including the full-scale Vehicle Wind Tunnel, Green Engines Research Laboratory and Vehicle NVH Laboratory.
The International Automotive Engineering program at RMIT University has a focus on sustainable design and manufacturing practices based on the entire life cycle (from 'cradle to grave') of vehicles. This incorporates the design for disposal and recycle, disassembly, life cycle assessment, alternative fuels and powertrains, and light structures.
You will develop a comprehensive understanding of the product life cycle and systems design of modern automobiles and associated technologies. This understanding is developed through project-based learning involving real-life problems in cooperation with industry both locally and internationally.
Graduates will be able to work effectively as automotive engineering specialists, leading technological innovation in cross-disciplinary teams. They will be able to work effectively within, and between, geographically and culturally diverse settings with a broad understanding of the complex automotive supply chain and logistics involved.
