Programmes Offered by RIC and Entry Requirements

  • Engineering Pathway

Undergraduates registering for the Engineering degree will commence the degree at RIC for the first two years of study and will transfer to the Deakin University, Australia for the final two years. The final two years in Deakin will give students more exposure to professional engineering practices while the former two years in Sri Lanka will give more focus to the theoretical and academic knowledge of the discipline. In the final year, students will get the opportunity to work as interns in industries; an opportunity which will undoubtedly enhance the graduates’ capacity to find employment in Australia.

Deakin University Engineering degrees are aimed at creating employable graduates who can fulfill the needs of the industry. Industry Based Learning (IBL) involves working full or part time in industry as part of your degree programme and plays a valuable role in preparing for graduate employment.
