Monash University Malaysia has also been given the Self Accreditation Status by the Ministry of Education (MoE) through the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). Programs offered at the School of Engineering are accredited by Monash University and recognised by the following organisations:
Civil engineering is concerned with the design, construction, maintenance and the operation of infrastructure for the benefit of society. Civil engineers design structures including multi-storey buildings, bridges, tunnels, commercial complexes, oil rig platforms, water systems, road and traffic systems and foundation supports.
Civil engineering encompasses four major fields of activity:
structural engineering, water resources engineering, transport engineering and geotechnical engineering. Civil engineers are responsible for the basic needs and facilities (or infrastructure) of modern society. They work for government bodies and for private employers as consulting engineers and engineering contractors specialising in areas such as structural design, water engineering, geotechnics, transportation and construction management.
Your career prospects as a civil engineer are strong and diverse. When you graduate, you could work in private industry, government, construction and mining, marine and resort developments, property and land development and in consulting.
Chemical engineers invent, develop and design processes that convert raw materials into useful products – with minimal environmental impact.
Chemical engineers are also involved with pollution control, protection of the environment and with energy conservation.
As populations grow and resources and energy reserves decline, the demand for chemical engineers increases.
As a chemical engineer, you can work in a range of industries including the biotechnology, chemical, energy, environmental, food, mineral, nanotechnology, oil, paper, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries.
In these industries you would most likely work in one of the following roles:
Process engineer – you solve production problems, develop new products, reduce energy usage and the carbon footprint, increase plant safety and efficiency, and oversee plant upgrades and expansions. You work with a team of people in operations, maintenance and business strategy.
Design engineer – you work in a consultancy office, designing new plants for clients, as well as extensions to existing plants. You might design a distillation column today, be sizing a heat exchanger tomorrow, work on safety and environmental protections, or work out how to control each unit of the plant to ensure smooth and reliable operation.
Research and development engineer – you work in a laboratory or a company, and develop new ways to do chemical engineering. You might develop new products or you might work on new catalysts to increase reaction efficiency.
Electrical and computer systems engineering is an extremely diverse field, taking in biomedical, computer systems, electronics, electrical power engineering, robotics and telecommunications. This is a field that evolves rapidly, with new technologies and techniques being patented every day.
Electrical and computer systems engineering spans all scales of electrical and electronic engineering, from the fundamentals of circuits, electronic signals and signal processing; through digital electronics and systems on chips; to the designs of large scale power and telecommunication systems.
As an electrical and computer systems engineer you could work locally or internationally, in a wide range of industries, including power generation, industrial and power electronics, automation systems, computer programming, robotics, health care, and water and energy systems.
Many Monash graduates work in large public and private telecommunications, manufacturing and electrical power companies. Others work for defence and intelligence organisations.
You will also be prepared for careers in other industries such as online ticketing, banking and finance – or organisations that need to create, store, encode and transmit data or manage complex systems.
Mechanical engineering is about turning energy into motion and power. It covers the generation, conversion, transmission and use of mechanical and thermal energy, and includes the design, construction and operation of devices and systems. It also involves the behaviours of solids, liquids and gases when forces are applied and when they are heated and cooled.
As a mechanical engineer you could work in research and development, product and process design, technical sales and support, manufacturing, field and test engineering, project management, systems design and power plant operations and quality control. You could work in the petrochemical, automotive, transportation, aerospace, electronic, mining and robotic industries.
Robotics and mechatronics, central to addressing this demand, is crucial to the development of smart products and intelligent devices. It is the nexus between mechanical and electrical engineering, and is at the forefront of the Internet of things. As a robotics and mechatronics engineer, you could design the control systems for a myriad of applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to miniature robots for use in medical applications. Or you might take an everyday household product and turn it into a truly clever device.
Robotics and mechatronics engineers design devices and the programs that control those devices. They’re adept at handling vast amounts of data and creating systems that make sense of data in real time so that a fully automated manufacturing facility can operate safely and efficiently, or a car can drive completely autonomously. The applications of this field is virtually unlimited. With the knowledge and skills you’ll have when you graduate, you’ll be able to design, develop, manufacture and operate the intelligent products and complex systems of today and tomorrow.
This course was designed in response to the fast-paced and growing needs of the industry and our lifestyle. It equips you with skills and insights sought after by the industry, and offers a choice of specialisation in automation or AI that’ll prepare you with the essential knowledge and skillsets to redefine success for your future organisation.
Software is everywhere. It does everything from dispensing medicine to controlling flight paths to monitoring and shaping our shopping habits. Our world’s major companies, governments and organisations depend on smartly designed and well-built software. And they rely on the expertise of skilled software engineers to make it happen.
As a software engineer, you will apply engineering principles to systematically analyse, develop and improve software to ensure it runs effectively, safely and securely. You will acquire high-level programming expertise, but software engineering goes well beyond writing code. Most modern IT systems are so complicated that teams of people must work together to create them. This specialisation’s emphasis on collaborative studio-based learning will give you strong skills in teamwork, project management and communication.
You can apply for the highly regarded IT Industry Based Learning (IBL) program to do a half-year placement with leading Malaysian and global organisations. Placement counts towards your course and is supported by scholarship.
This is a truly global research qualification that will give you the grounding to delve deeply into engineering challenges and develop solutions for the future. During your candidature, you will develop specialised knowledge and skills in your chosen area that will enable you to address national issues and global needs, and improve the way of life in local communities.
