RMIT sees western Victoria jobs opportunity

 

RMIT University is introducing a new logistics course in Hamilton as Victoria’s south-west looks to triple its commodities growth by 2045.

Logistics is one of the growth areas identified by the local council and university when identifying future job demands, with transport and logistics one of the shire’s priority industries, RMIT senior manager Dr Kaye Scholfield says.

The initiative is part of the Cooperative Learning and Business Incubator Project supported by the State Government.

"On average, students pay $20,000 per annum living away from home, excluding the cost of earning a degree," Scholfield says.

"It makes sense to study at home for as long as possible and save before moving away.

"There is no reason why you couldn’t get onto a training and learning pathway that could really take you to some exciting places – beginning right here in Hamilton."
