Monash Engineering Leadership Program

The Monash Engineering Leadership Program is designed to transform students into future engineering leaders.

Program overview

This internationally recognised program is delivered by industry experts and focuses on all aspects of leadership. It provides a rare opportunity to network, acquire life skills and learn about leadership outside the formal classroom environment. Student intake occurs once a year through an open call for applications. The program is designed to challenge, develop and engage students to help them become confident and articulate and ready to work in industry.

Program Structure

The journey commences with a two-day induction which provides the foundations of the program. A further 12 modules then focus on building participants’ knowledge and experience. These modules are typically made up of two or three separate sessions, with the first generally focusing on providing new  information, the second more interactive allowing students to put these new learnings into context, and the final session often includes a panel with representatives from industry the discussing of the learnings. Attendance at the Phase 1 two-day induction and all modules over the three years is compulsory.

An insight into industry

The program also offers industry visits to give students insight into the engineering world and help them connect with people in industry. At the conclusion of the program, students, Monash VIPs, Heads of Departments and industry representatives attend a graduation celebration to celebrate the students' success and recognise industry partners and personal donors.
