Foundation: 1887

Mission: RMIT embraces the task of extending the benefits of a fast-innovating, high-skill knowledge economy to our whole community and our world. We are dedicated to helping shape a new urban and industrial renaissance in the global economy. We are driven by impact and focused on the challenges and opportunities emerging around us. As the world economy transforms, we have a responsibility to make the resulting changes work for the whole of society. Our distinctive approach to connected education and research links creative ideas with technical knowledge. We empower students to shape their own lives, achieve impact and create valued places for themselves through work and engagement in the wider community. RMIT understands how to do this during a period of deep technological change – because we have been through it before.

Vision: A global university of technology, design and enterprise.
