It is the University’s expectation that only those who are well and not presenting with COVID-19 symptoms attend a Monash campus or location. View our latest updates.
Develop artificial hearts that save lives. Analyse systems to withstand the extremes of space. Improve electric vehicles to accelerate the renewable revolution. Rethink lithium batteries to boost energy density and reduce costs.
Want to design high-efficiency, high-performance systems – and make your mark?
Get up to speed with the latest breakthroughs in robotics, biomedical imaging, additive manufacturing, systems performance analysis and sustainability.
You’ll explore a systems approach to the design, monitoring and performance of complex mechanical engineering solutions. Then put the theory to the test as you drive innovation and seize leadership opportunities in our student teams.
Get involved in Monash Motorsport and add R&D experience to your CV as you build autonomous vehicles. Or join Monash Nova Rover to design Mars rovers for planetary exploration and forge industry connections with partners like NASA and Boeing.
In units taught by leading academics and industry experts, you’ll gain a strong understanding of engineering processes to analyse, build and maintain the technology of tomorrow.
See the course map and handbook for an outline of the course structures, units and electives.
I first came to Melbourne on an international exchange program from Malaysia, and really liked the vibrant campus lifestyle and immersive culture. As part of my master’s course, I worked on a team final-year project where we researched and designed what we hope will become the new standard of riding helmets. With help from our industry sponsor, we developed a helmet with Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene reinforcement which would increase the safety of the rider, whilst reducing the helmet weight.”
