"What is materials engineering?" Prof. George Simon

Welcome to the Department of Materials Engineering

The ability to understand and manipulate materials and their properties is a key factor in any industrial process or technology, new or old. Increasingly nanotechnology, sustainable materials and biomaterials are becoming important areas of our endeavor. Because of the enabling aspect of Materials Engineering, and the multidisciplinary nature of the skills learned, our graduates are much in demand in many industrial organisations. Many also go into research, be it in academia, industrial laboratories or government research organisations

Monash cultivates four Tall Poppies

In recognition of their scientific and intellectual excellence, Monash researchers have taken out four of the eight Victorian Tall Poppy Awards for 2013.
The aim is to challenge stereotypes and open the girls’ minds to the possibility of pursuing a career in  engineering, IT, or at the interface of the disciplines.

Where are the girls and why aren't they in engineering and IT?

EngenuITy, a joint event to be hosted by the Faculties of Engineering and Information Technology this week, will give more than 50 high-achieving Year 10 girls an opportunity to get their hands on technology, discover the world of engineers and techies, and meet women in engineering and IT.
