Entering ECSE

Undergraduate Program

For entry into the Undergraduate Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering Program, year 12 applications are lodged through VTAC.

The main Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Robotic Engineering and Computer Systems Engineering degrees are studied by applying for a Bachelor of Engineering and then specialising.

Students can choose to major in ECSE after completing the Bachelor of Engineering first-year (Level 1) units. Certain double degrees allow students to choose their Engineering discipline on commencement of Level 1.

Direct entry to the Bachelor of Computer Systems Engineering (BCSE) degree gives you a more focussed computing, electronics and software engineering degree.

More information is located at the ECSE Single Degree and Double Degree pages.

For more information about applications to Monash University, see the Applications and Entry Requirements.

Postgraduate Program

Students interested in postgraduate studies have the option of completing a Masters of Engineering Science (Research) or a PhD in an area of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering. Typically, students are admitted into the Masters program first, and then can transfer to PhD after their first year, if eligible. Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis.

A number of research projects are conducted within each research area of ECSE. For a list of postgraduate scholarships currently on offer, please see the research scholarships. Additional postgraduate scholarships and top-ups may be offered in areas of research funded by government or industry, such as bionic vision, telecommunications and RFID.

For more information, see the postgraduate courses. For details on the application process, see the postgraduate program application process.
