Alternative qualifications and prerequisites

For other domestic and international qualification entry requirements and scores for this course based on your prior studies, use the study credit and admissions eligibility search.

Non-School leaver requirements

All applicants must satisfy the equivalence of the VCE subject prerequisites.

VET Certificate IV, diploma or advanced diploma graduates: To be considered, applicants will normally require at least 60% average. Preference may be given to students whose prior studies are related to the course in which they are seeking admission. Programs that involve competency-based assessment without grades or marks will not meet the admission requirements.

University: Two single units at an Australian higher education institution satisfy minimum entry requirements, but more units may be useful for selection, especially in areas of study related to the course in which admission is being sought.

English requirements

Applicants must also meet the English language requirements.

University entrance requirements

Minimum entrance requirements for admission to Monash University Australia.

Alternative entry pathways

Multiple pathways to this course

If you don't have the entrance requirements above, you'll be able to gain entry to this course by completing the pathway course Monash College Diploma of Engineering.

Additionally, we recognise that some applicants may have experienced difficulties that have disadvantaged them when applying for university. We offer a range of special admissions schemes that may help you gain entry to your chosen course. More about special admissions schemes...

Course Structure

With a specialist course at Monash you begin study in your area of interest from day one. If you have a specific career goal or more specific field of study firmly in your sights, this may be the option for you. These courses are designed to ensure you have the right combination of skills needed for your professional field.

The course develops through four themes that combine to underpin engineering practice.

A. Engineering fundamentals and foundational skills

These will develop your understanding of natural and physical sciences, mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences that underpin all engineering disciplines.

B. Engineering design

This will develop the engineering techniques, tools and resources for the conduct, design and management of engineering design processes and projects, both in the industrial setting and in the development of research experiments.

C. Engineering knowledge and application

This will provide in-depth knowledge of the specific engineering methods of a branch of engineering, and will integrate the specific engineering methods and discipline knowledge into practice. You will develop skills to identify and apply knowledge of contextual factors impacting the engineering discipline. Additionally, your studies will focus on your understanding and application of the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in your discipline.

D. Professional practice

This will develop your skills in readiness for the engineering workplace. You will develop skills in effective team membership and team leadership, the use and management of commercially relevant data, and the legal responsibilities of engineers. This study will integrate the theme 'Engineering knowledge and application' with your specialist field of engineering.

E. Elective study

This will enable you to further deepen your knowledge of engineering or broaden your knowledge in another approved field. Students completing a single degree course may use electives to add technical expertise in their engineering specialisation and/or to complete one of the engineering approved minors from another faculty thereby adding other skills to their repertoire. If you wish to take more than two units outside the faculty, and you are not using the additional units to complete one of the approved minors, you must consult with and gain permission from your course advisor before doing so.

In order to meet local accreditation requirements, students studying their degree on the Malaysia campus must choose technical engineering units to fulfil the elective requirements of their engineering degree.

For students completing a double degree course, 48 credit points of elective units are used to broaden their knowledge by fulfilling the requirements of the partner course.

Double Degrees

Partner with another course

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take up to two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.
