Abstract:

The story of RMIT starts in 1881 with the quest for a public benefactor and ends in 1981 when it has become an institution familiar to all Victorians. This history was written with a number of purposes: to commemorate the achievements, over its first 100 years, of the largest postsecondary institution in Australia and to point out areas where its full potential was not realised; to set it in context, presenting a portrait on an institution which, though it has contributed much, could have contributed more had the environment and external constraints been different; and to ask and provide possible answers to questions arising from the foregoing. It is therefore more than a history of one institution, rather it discusses technological education in Australia in general and poses important questions about its future in our society. The Tech has achieved much, for the future of Australia it must achieve more.
