What makes RMIT science programs special
• Entry pathways from Diploma and Associate degree run in VET
• Choice with specialization – a major / minor combination, double
degree or integrated Hons
• Strong hands on component – plenty of practical experience, labs, pilot
plant, and field trips
• All students do an independent project in their final year
• All student will complete either a work placement or a project based
team working component
• Science / University elective components
• International OS experience, semester exchange, OS work experience,
International Student volunteers (ISV)
All students do a science research project in
their final year…
Working in teams on real projects
These activities rehearse skills
needed in industry
