Monash University Malaysia

Monash University is named after engineer, military leader and public administrator Sir John Monash, Monash University was established by an Act of Parliament in 1958. When our first students began their studies at our foundation campus in Clayton in 1961, we became the first university established in the state of Victoria in over 100 years.

Early Years
The early vision was to create a research-focused tertiary institution with an emphasis on science and technology. As Monash has always done, though, we quickly moved beyond the bounds of expectation. Free from tradition and convention, we were within just a few years of our first intake of a mere 347 students, offering courses in arts, economics, education, engineering, law, medicine, politics and science.

Creativity, Innovation and Activism
The focus on research excellence remained, but what grew around it was a culture of creativity, innovation and irreverence. In the 1970s the foundation campus at Clayton became the centre for student protest in Australia, and this philosophy of challenging the status quo permeated the University. It remains to this day, although where once it was the Vietnam war and second-wave feminism that occupied activists' attention, today it is global poverty and sustainability, among many other causes. This position of leadership was not only confined to campaigning and advocacy, however, and Monash had soon become the model for a new generation of Australian universities.

The growth from technology / science specialists to general university was rapid. It was accelerated by a merger with Chisholm Institute in 1990, which saw the Caulfield and Peninsula campuses become a part of the University. A year later the Victorian College of Pharmacy entered into a partnership with Monash that allowed us to bring Parkville into our portfolio of campuses. The growth continued apace with the establishment of a new campus within the south-eastern growth corridor of Melbourne in 1994 - our Berwick campus.

International Expansion
In 1998, the Malaysian Ministry of Education invited Monash to set up a campus in Malaysia in collaboration with the Sunway Group. Monash University Malaysia was established in the same year, the first Monash campus outside Australia and the first "foreign" university in Malaysia. A second off-shore campus was opened in South Africa in 2001. Since 2014, Monash South Africa has not operated as a full campus of Monash University but remains a location where Monash University degrees are delivered, along with qualifications unique to this location.

Group of Eight
To underscore the reputation that the University had earned, in 1999 we were invited to be a founding member of the Group of Eight, the coalition of Australia's most prestigious research-intensive universities. Monash had been around for just four decades, and yet was demonstrably holding its own against universities that had had well over a century to establish themselves.

From a single campus at Clayton with fewer than 400 students, Monash has grown into a network of campuses, education centres and partnerships spanning the globe. With approximately 60,000 students (and 250,000 almuni) from over 170 countries, we are today Australia's largest university. The University now offers a broad selection of courses within 10 faculties: Art, Design and Architecture; Arts; Business and Economic; Education; Engineering; Information Technology; Law; Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences; Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences; and Science.

The best aspect of studying at Monash as a graduate researcher, is the opportunity to engage in multidisciplinary research and creating your own avenue – as long as you keep expanding your horizons, and keep working toward a clear direction, various eye opening experiences await you.

Arvind Rajan

Arvind RajanPhD (Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering) student

Monash has considerably given me a strong foundation in the research-related fields of materials science, chemistry, catalysis and nanotechnology. This has helped to expand my research horizons and networking. Most importantly, it boosted my confidence in a career where I continue to strive for the best in research for a better and sustainable environment.

Ong Wee Jun

Ong Wee JunPhD (Chemical Engineering) graduate

Our engineering courses are ranked among the best in the world and are globally recognised. At Monash, we go beyond producing engineers – we produce leaders. That's the Monash difference.

Professor Chan Eng Seng
