Monash is fully committed to increasing the number of women studying and working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Our female students are supported with a range of initiatives to foster their skills, confidence and capabilities.
Ranked in the top 1% of world universities, and consistently rated as a preferred university from which to hire graduates, Monash delivers an enviable pipeline of talent to the resources industry.
With Australia’s number one Engineering school including a resources engineering specialisation, plus world-class Science, Information Technology, Arts, and Business faculties, Monash University’s highly regarded graduates are well prepared to meet the challenges of the future in the resources field.
“I chose mining engineering because mining is something that affects everybody’s life. Without mining, the metals and materials needed to develop new technology wouldn’t exist – materials such as lithium for batteries, and particular metals needed for computers and phones (to name a few). I’m excited to be a part of something so important, and to be a part of developing new ways to make mining cleaner and safer.”
Our resources engineering specialisation allows students to gain expertise across the fields of mining, geological, oil and gas, materials and renewable energy engineering.
With critical skill sets in automation and digital technologies, data science, analytics, exploration, planning, extraction, processing, rehabilitation and environmental sustainability and biology, Monash graduates are in high demand and rapidly employed across the sector.
Our geoscience specialisations allow students to gain experience in structural geology, structural geophysical interpretation and modelling, 3D modelling, mineral system analysis, drone application for mining and exploration, radiogenic isotope analysis, and broad ranging economic geology applications including hydrothermal reaction and transport, bio-mineralogy, synchrotron geoscience, volcanology, environmental geoscience and hydrogeology.
Our students are training in data analysis and technologies that relate to the mineral exploration, mining, and the environment. Our graduates are employed across mining, exploration, government and consults.
