Engineers have forged some of the greatest developments in modern society. Clean water, advances in medical equipment and the increased quality of food supplies are all a result of engineering. Engineers improve life for everyone on our planet. Monash University is a global leader in engineering, ranked number two in Australia for Engineering and Technology for the fourth consecutive year by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (2021), and housing world-class facilities. These include the Woodside Building for Design and Technology, the Monash Makerspace and one of the world's most powerful electron microscopes. At Monash you can become a fully qualified and accredited engineer in just four years. Your degree commences with a 'common first year, 'which allows you to explore the Engineering disciplines before specialising from second year. Monash Engineering integrates practical and theoretical learning. You can get involved in Clubs and Teams, complete a career ready program, go on international exchange or participate in our new Cooperative education program providing three, six or 12 month work placement opportunities. On graduation, you will be highly sought-after across many industries as demand for professional engineers is robust, known for your creative thinking, problem solving and ability to excel in team-based environments.


Students undertake the Common First year before specialising in their chosen discipline from level 2. This course comprises 192 points, of which 144 points are from core engineering study and 48 points are available for elective study. The course develops through theme studies: Part A. Engineering fundamentals and foundational skills, Part B. Engineering design, Part C. Engineering knowledge and application, Part D. Professional practice and Part E. Elective study. All students need to complete 420 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) as required by Engineers Australia in order to graduate.
