The Monash difference

Monash Engineering qualifications are professionally accredited and internationally recognised. We provide a total experience for our students. We want to teach highly skilled engineers, while developing well-rounded individuals, who are ready for professional life, leadership and success. That’s the Monash difference.

Engineering – your way

At Monash, you can complete your engineering qualification in just four years, or study for five years and graduate with a double degree or a masters. Our engineering students complete a common first year to gain a broad understanding of engineering and the different specialisations. And there are plenty of options for you to branch out in your subsequent years of study.

Studying a double degree with Monash is a great choice for students who have a passion for two disciplines and would like to further their career options. Monash Engineering is aligned with nine degrees from other Monash faculties. More and more organisations seek engineering graduates with expertise in multiple areas and Monash Engineering caters for this with the opportunity to complete two degrees, in just five years.

A total learning experience

Great engineers are so much more than just their skills – they’re planners, leaders, team players and communicators. At Monash, our engineering courses aim to produce highly skilled engineers who are ready for life, ready for work, ready for the world.

The Monash Engineering Leadership Program, the co-op program, and the Monash Industry Team Initiative, are all designed to help our students become well-rounded engineers, and better develop their strengths and their passions as people. Monash Engineering students are able to branch out by way of activities such as – studying abroad or joining a club such as the Monash Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS Club).

Engineering is a hands-on discipline where learning goes beyond the classroom, so it’s important to choose a university with the best facilities to support your studies. Monash has some of the world’s finest, such as the CAVE2 immersive visualisation platform, significant capability in 3D printing of metals, polymers and multimaterials, the largest wind tunnel in the Southern Hemisphere, one of the world’s most powerful electron microscopes, and the ground-breaking New Horizons centre, which brings together the best of Monash Engineering and the CSIRO under one roof.
