Monash University offers postgraduate Engineering and I.T. programs via two separate faculties.
The Faculty of Engineering at Monash University is one of the largest and most prestigious centres for engineering education in Australia and provides teaching, research, professional and community services to the highest standards. According to the QS World University Rankings 2016 by subject, Monash is ranked #1 in Australia for chemical engineering.
The Monash Faculty of Engineering is made up of five departments:
Department of Chemical Engineering
Chemical engineering encompasses a wide range of disciplines including economic design, operation and management of process systems in which materials are changed in composition or physical state. Chemical engineering has its foundation in chemistry, physics and mathematics; its operations are developed from knowledge provided by these disciplines and by other branches of engineering, applied sciences, biological sciences and economics.
Department of Civil Engineering
The department of civil engineering at Monash was formed in 1961. It has a long and productive history in providing quality education and research outputs in the areas of Geomechanics, Mining, Structures, Transport, and Water. The department honours one distinguished alumnus each year with the Alumnus of the Year award, and awards the achievements of its high performing staff and students. It also sponsors several international visitors to the department every year to conduct joint research.
Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering
The department of ECSE is an extremely diverse department specialising in telecommunications, RFID, biomedical engineering, robotics, sensing, vision, systems-on-a-chip and smart energy systems. These applications are based on fundamental research in electronics, photonics, signal processing, communications theory, artificial intelligence, real-time software, optimization, electromagnetics and numerical modeling.
Department of Materials Science and Engineering Materials Engineers make a unique contribution to the design of new devices, products or components, and they make existing ones work better by improving or altering the properties of the materials involved. Materials engineers also work as metallurgists, plastics engineers, ceramicists, adhesive scientists, process and quality control engineers and corrosion or fracture engineers.
Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The department is actively engaged in creating new knowledge through its research activities. It is a large and diverse department consisting of a large academic staff, two industry-focused research institutes, postdoctoral research staff and a significant postgraduate student community. Through their work the department is internationally renowned for its teaching expertise, its research output and its facilities.
