Postgraduate research degrees
RMIT University offers both PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) and Master degrees by research. A research degree requires a student to formulate their own topic and produce a substantial thesis or project. All research students are allocated an academic supervisor who has expertise in the broad area of their topic. The supervisor will be available for regular consultation with the student and will be responsible, with the student, for ensuring the candidature progresses well.
Research degrees require a high level of commitment and are a form of systematic inquiry into some aspect of property, construction or project management. In the process, students learn research skills whilst also contributing to the knowledge of the discipline in some new and innovative way.
Research students will normally submit a traditional written thesis for their degree.
