At Monash, the desire to make a difference informs everything we do.

Our partnerships with government, industry and the community ensure our research and education is engaged across the entire mining value chain, from exploration to rehabilitation.

Whether it’s expanding the value of the resource base, optimising existing infrastructure and operations or data analytics and drone platforms, our research is leading today’s solutions to tomorrow’s opportunities.

In addition to our research capabilities, our role in developing skilled graduates to support the industry and ongoing cross-disciplinary executive education is well recognised as helping to educate the employees of tomorrow.
