Lit up Monash sign

Monash University is ranked as the best university in Australia in the fields of chemical, materials science, metallurgical, nanoscience and nanotechnology*. And we're #55 in the world for engineering according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022 by subject: engineering.

What’s more, Monash itself is in the top 1 per cent of world universities (ranked 57th) according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022, and a member of the prestigious Group of Eight Universities here in Australia.

Of course, rankings are not all that matters. What matters most is your personal learning experience. When you study at Monash you’ll be taught by the best and you’ll learn alongside the best. Our academics are world leaders in their fields. Drawn from a range of backgrounds and experiences, they’ll enrich and challenge your knowledge, insights and ideas.

A global outlook

New Horizons Building

Monash is an Australian university forging strong international links. The Monash Malaysia campus was established in 1998 (we began running our Engineering programs at the campus in the same year). And, we’re the first Australian university to receive a licence to operate in China. We are operating at Suzhou in partnership with the Southeast University (SEU) – one of China’s key national universities. The SEU-Monash partnership consists of the Joint Graduate School and Joint Research Institute.

We also have an exciting partnership the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB). The IITB Monash Research Academy, located in Mumbai, focuses on providing innovative research outcomes for industries in India and Australia.
