Masters Engineering Leadership Program

Monash Masters Engineering Leadership Program (MMELP)

Program overview

The MMELP offers a suite of workshops and seminars to help you develop and practice your employability and leadership skills.

Throughout the program, you will have the opportunity to develop workplace competencies, prepare for industry expectations and work with cultural differences in a global context.

The program will include a number of bespoke activities including workshops on networking and communications, industry visits, an alumni panel, an introduction to Engineers Australia and more. In conjunction with this, we encourage you to take part in other professional development activities that are offered university-wide. More information on these activities can be found below.

If you are enrolled in the Master of Professional Engineering, you can count any hours associated with the MMELP towards your CPD.

Program structure

Students are able to take part in the MMELP activities and events as they please. There are no entry requirements – you simply register for an event and show up!

However, it is important to note that students who meet the program’s minimum attendance requirements will be rewarded with the opportunity to list the MMELP on their Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).

The AHEGS is a certificate you can include with job applications that will provide professional recognition of your participation in the program and give potential employers insight into your achievements.
