The Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy, houses the world's most powerful electron microscope, in a building designed to provide exceptional mechanical, thermal and electro-magnetic stability to optimise instrument performance. One of the most stable such buildings in the world.
The Monash Wind Tunnel has a wide range of usage by different industries, including wind engineering, aerospace, ground transportation and racing cars.
Evans used the Monash Wind Tunnel earlier this year in his Olympic preparation as part of a new partnership between Monash and the Australian Institute of Sport's(AIS) elite cycling program.
The outstanding research equipment and facilities at Monash Engineering are among the best in Australia. Here are just some examples.
The university hosts unique and leading edge engineering facilities such as:
- The largest wind tunnel in the southern hemisphere
- A world-class wave tank which simulates the action of any large body of water
- Microscopy and microanalysis equipment
- Recently refurbished and expanded library and resource centre designed specifically for engineering studies
- Multimillion dollar communications and power laboratories equipped with commercial systems and best-in-class instrumentation
Plus we have access to the Synchrotron, situated next to Monash
Clayton, Australia's largest scientific and engineering facility.
We're committed to supporting our students in every way, so we also boast:
- State-of-the-art computer laboratories, specifically geared towards the printing, scanning and software needs of the engineer-in-the-making
- A recently refurbished and expanded library and resource centre, specially designed for Engineering studies
