You need to satisfy the following entrance requirements to be considered for entry to this course.
Equivalent Australian Year 12
All applicants must satisfy the following prerequisites or their equivalents.
|Australian VCE subjects||Units 3 & 4: a study score of at least 30 in English (EAL) or 25 in English other than EAL||Units 3 & 4: a study score of at least 25 in Mathematical Methods (CAS)||Units 3 & 4: a study score of at least 25 in Chemistry or Physics|

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.
Applicants must also meet the English language requirements.

We offer over 200 types of scholarships, valued at up to $70,000. Some scholarships offer one-off payments while others continue for the length of your course. Learn more about Monash Scholarships.
The Student Services and Amenities Fee applies to some students each calendar year.
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.
These will develop your understanding of natural and physical sciences, mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences that underpin all engineering disciplines.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
