Monash Engineering has established diverse international relationships with Chinese universities and has strong industry linkages with world-renowned organisations. The China Linkage Engineering Programs, available at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, provide unique opportunities for students to combine their study with valuable international experience.
The IITB-Monash Research Academy, based in Mumbai, India is an exciting partnership between the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) and Monash University - two of the world's leading educational and research institutions.
Together IITB and Monash are taking a collaborative approach to multidisciplinary research that can effectively deliver high impact, integrated solutions to complex research problems for industry, government and the broader research community.
The IITB-Monash Research Academy has received significant financial and research support by principle sponsors, including BHP Billiton, the Australian Stem Cell Centre and the CSIRO.
The University of Indonesia and Monash University maintain strong relations through the 2+2 chemical engineering program that allows students from the University of Indonesia to complete their final two years at Monash and graduate with two degrees awarded by both institutions.
Akashi College is a part of the National Institute of Technology, a unique network of “colleges of technology” that focuses on developing students with applied technological skills and promoting cooperative research.
Akashi and Monash aim to provide world-class education opportunities to students from Akashi at Monash University. Students from Akashi will have an opportunity to apply for admission to selected Monash courses and receive credit for prior studies at Akashi.
Monash College and the Faculty of Engineering provide a customised program for engineering students from Osaka University on general English and English language for engineering and science. Participating students are offered a full day of engineering activities that aim to provide an engaging engineering environment for the students to practice their English language skills to grasp and communicate technical information.
In order to enhance research and other academic activities, the Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo, Japan, and the Faculty of Engineering have entered joint research collaboration in the fields of utilization of brown coal. The scope of academic exchange and cooperation includes conducting joint research, organizing academic meetings, symposiums and workshops, exchange of information, and joint academic publications.
The Monash University Sunway Campus in Malaysia opened in 1998. The Monash Sunway School of Engineering offers the Bachelor of Engineering degree with specialisations in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering and Chemical Engineering. Students specialising in one of these disciplines can complete their degree on campus in Malaysia, or transfer to Clayton campus, Australia.
The Monash Sunway Engineering School advances in research addressing; robotics, automation and manufacturing, photonics semiconductors communication technologies, chemical and sustainable process engineering, and environment and green technology.
Luleå University of Technology (LTU) has been a prestigious higher learning institution since its establishment in the early 1970s, and pioneers some of the geological science and environmental sustainability.
The Monash-Luleå collaboration started in December 1996 as a teacher exchange program financed by the Swedish Council for the Renewal of University Education between the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Luleå University of Technology and the ECSE Department, Faculty of Engineering, Monash University.
Students are able to undertake the Dual-award PhD Program, whereby students enroll as PhD candidates at both Monash and Luleå on a common research topic under joint supervision. The students spend a minimum of one year researching at each university, submit two dissertations and satisfy the academic requirements of each university. Duration of candidature is four years.
Strong ongoing collaboration in research in all departments of Engineering, supported by local and Swedish STINT (Swedish Institute for International Cooperation in Research and Teaching) grants. Monash researchers can also join Luleå collaborators as partners in EU research programs. Over 80 journal and conference papers have resulted from the collaborative research so far.
In addition to a strong and productive relationship between the two universities over many years, particularly through joint research projects, Monash and the University of Warwick, UK, established a first-of-its-kind alliance in December 2011.
A core priority of the alliance is to deliver a seamless international experience for students and prepare them for life in a globally integrated labour market. The Warwick Monash partnership develops a range of jointly delivered degrees with students undertaking study at both universities.
