RMIT University is a global academic institute of design, enterprise, and technology. Initially known as the Melbourne Technical College and Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), it was founded in 1887 as a night school, offering courses in Science, Art, and Technology. Eventually, it became a leading public research university in Melbourne, Australia. Moreover, it has become known as the largest dual-sector education body in the country, offering numerous programs for higher and vocational studies.
The university’s first and largest campus is in Melbourne City. It features several interwar period architecture and Victorian-era buildings and is also one of the most accessible locations as it is close to Melbourne Shopping Centre and City Loop. Aside from the main campus, RMIT also has two satellite campuses. There is one located in Brunswick, which is dedicated to its vocational design schools and one in Bundoora where they conduct programs in Engineering, Medical Sciences, and Social Sciences. Other RMIT sites include the Royal Australian Air Force's Williams base and a regional research center in Hamilton. It also established a campus in Ho Chi Minh City in 1988 and a coordinating center in Barcelona, Spain.
The university is composed of numerous schools offering both degree-granting and vocational programs. These are organized into three colleges—the College of Business and Law, the College of Design and Social Context, and the College of Science, Engineering, and Health.
RMIT centers on applied and outcome-based research and consultancy services. Its studies focus on topics of technology, design, health, globalization, and sustainability. Its Portfolio of Research and Innovation has very similar operations as its colleges. It provides research facilities and resources, such as RMIT Gallery, the Design Hub, and eResearch Office. Furthermore, there are over 50 independent research centers within the university's schools and colleges, each with their own goals, study focus, and research outputs. As such, RMIT is considered one of the best educational institutions around the world in terms of teaching, research, employability, innovation, and specializations. It is also recognized as one of the leaders in internationalization, engagement, and facilities.
The university is also active in making sure that students have a rich and balanced life within its campus. RMIT Link is the campus union that aims to promote social, educational, cultural, recreational, and sporting activities. On the other hand, RMIT's University Student Union is an independent body that protects students' rights and interests through various programs and initiatives. Numerous clubs and organizations are managed and promoted by these two bodies to cater to students' interests and needs. RMIT is also noted for having a multi-faith Spiritual Centre that welcomes students and faculty members from different religious denominations.
