The cost of studying at RMIT University varies largely depending on the type of university and the degree chosen. More often than not, humanities, arts, and education courses are less expensive than degrees in medical, engineering, or management. Furthermore, students who choose to study at the postgraduate level typically pay higher tuition fees, which again vary depending on the programme chosen. Most universities provide scholarships or financial aid to students in order to help them offset their tuition costs. Students should be aware that additional course fees and incidental expenses may not be included in tuition. On average, international students can expect to pay A$ 42,240 annually, to study in RMIT University.

Climate change is a matter of global importance. Demand has arisen for engineers able to conceive and develop sustainable systems. The consumption of natural resources and energy in areas such as transport, buildings, manufacturing processes, are part of this need.

A sustainable systems engineer works with technologies and engineering approaches to ensure global development is sustainable, and to develop clean manufacturing processes and improvements in technology.Graduates of RMIT's Bachelor of Engineering (Sustainable Systems Engineering) (Honours) will find careers in energy efficiency, renewable energy, sustainable transport systems and vehicles, logistics, product design, manufacturing, and infrastructure.
