I'm majoring in Aerospace.
Positives: The teacher is very expertise in his/her area.
Negatives: Less pratical
My advice to future students is: You should have both knowledge from class and working experience.
I majored in Civil and Infrastructure.
Positives: Knowledge in civil and structural design after completion. A lot good lecturer make it engaging and easy to learn. Most of the faculty staff are easy to approach during my time at RMIT University
Negatives: Time table was not flexible and some of the function on blackboard are a bit hard navigate. Some of the assignment were complex but can be done over time. Some time it hard to form group or team when lecturer was not assigned team.
My advice to future students is: Make sure to follow up with the lecturer with any questions you didn't understand during the lecture or tuturial. Make sure to come to lecture session as it very important as spectrum in the learning process don't turn up late and be more involved with the field you studying
Positives: I learned the different ways to build and through this I got myself my first job which set me up for life
Negatives: It went for a long time and it cost a lot of money
My advice to future students is: Study hard and make sure you do everything required because It will make everything else easier. Be organised as that will help you understand the topics
I'm majoring in Civil and Infrastructure engineering.
Positives: Industry engagement, practicality of the course, the professionalism/industry background of the lecturers etc.
Negatives: University politics.
My advice to future students is: Get industry exeperience ASAP.
I completed the electrical major.
Positives: It gave me further in depth knowledge requested on the market
Negatives: The cost and at times poor quality of access to tutors and lecturers
My advice to future students is: Go for it,take this course if u truly intens to stay ih this field
Positives: I found that the course had a fairly hands on approach and the markets are just generally rather fair with grading. They also offer a decent number of majors, I chose telecommunications engineering. I also found that the expectations set my the uni on students / the workload was challenging but not unrealistic. As a mature age student who was seeking to gain further education for my work, I found the uni was supportive and I didn’t feel out of place.
Negatives: Compared to other universities, RMIT engineering does not rank as highly and so although this didn’t bother me as I already had employment, other students who had never worked in engineering before were concerned about job prospects as opposed to graduates from more well regarded or highly ranked universities.
My advice to future students is: Lots of people drop out of engineering - whether this is because of the difficulty of the degree or due to a dissatisfaction with the course I’m not sure. Either way, make sure this is really what you want to do and where you want to do it because you can’t go into this course half heartedly and expect to do well / enjoy it. Also keep your expectations low in terms of lecturer quality - some of them really aren’t up to scratch.
POSITIVES: Small cohort numbers, there are around 30 other people in the same year of my course so we all get to have all of our classes together. Interesting subject content. Good job and work experience opportunities within this industry.
NEGATIVES: Not much breadth within the course.
My advice to future students is: If you're struggling to pick between science and engineering look into surveying.
Helpful tutors and lectures but unhelpful labmates
My advice to future students is: Ask tutors and lecturers as many questions as you need
Positive: Longer days which mean more days off during the week 1-2, which is great if you work part time
The associate degree gives you some form of qualification in your desired course which is obtainable much quicker and cheaper than the full degree. This course also allows transfers into 3rd year degree upon completion
Staff are all friendly and want us to succeed
Negatives: Not being able to make your own timetable
My advice to future students is: Don’t be deterred by alternate courses if you don’t get into the course/uni that you want, there’s plenty of other ways to reach your goal and only go to Uni if you want to learn there’s no point in following others because you feel as if you have to
Positive: Heaps of help from teachers
My advice to future students is: Go to more lectures
