Clean economy focus areas


RMIT has a great reputation for trades programs, especially in electrotechnology, and has embedded clean economy topics (e.g. solar) within them. RMIT is continually reviewing offerings to maintain their relevance by actively conducting skills-gap analysis with subject-matter experts and following up on emerging trends (e.g. building electrification).

Fashion and textile

RMIT comes with a strong legacy in the fashion and textile space. Related programs have a well-established sustainability focus on circularity and have general sustainability best practice units embedded.

Building and construction

RMIT has several clean economy qualification offerings in building and construction. It is also engaged with industry partners to develop a skill set in sustainable building design and has a partnership with the City of Melbourne, the University of Melbourne and Trades Hall on the retrofitting, refurbishment and re-purposing of a collection of CBD buildings.
