LIFE-CHANGING RESEARCH Monash research is making a positive impact in local communities and around the world. 2007 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FOR CLIMATE CHANGE In 2007, eight scientists from Monash University shared in the prestige of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, awarded jointly to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and former US Vice President Al Gore. We judge our research not only by its academic excellence, but by the impact it has on the communities with which we engage and serve. 2014 HELPING THE BLIND TO SEE The Monash Vision Group (MVG) draws on the capabilities of Monash University, The Alfred hospital and industry partners MiniFAB and Grey Innovation to develop bionic eye technology that connects to the primary visual cortex.
This means that patients unable to make use of current retinal implants because of damaged optic nerves or physical trauma to the actual eyes may now have the opportunity to see again. monash.edu/bioniceye 2015 HELPING WOMEN GIVE BIRTH SAFELY Women in developing countries are often at risk of dying from postpartum haemorrhage because access to the lifesaving medicine oxytocin is severely limited. In an innovation that could save thousands of women, Monash researchers have developed a new form of oxytocin, which can be stored at room temperature and is inhaled by the patient. And it can be used with minimal training.
monash.edu/pharm/research/ iop 2011 ELIMINATING DENGUE FEVER Dengue fever is a deadly disease spread by mosquitoes carrying the dengue virus that infects millions of people every year. But research by Monash scientists has shown that a naturally occurring bacteria, Wolbachia, can be introduced into mosquito populations to prevent the spread of the virus to people. Researchers at the Eliminate Dengue program continue looking for ways to translate this approach to at-risk communities around the world. monash.edu/industry/ successstories/dengue 6 2020 INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE COURSE GUIDE Even before we became the global university we are today, our researchers looked beyond traditional boundaries, discovering ways of approaching the fields in which they worked.
It’s why a Monash education is so respected around the world. Things that we now take for granted wouldn’t exist without the initial work of Monash researchers, such as: 1973: Professors Alan Trounson and Carl Wood achieved the world’s first IVF pregnancy. The Trounson and Wood team went on to accomplish Australia’s first (and the world’s fourth) successful IVF birth in 1980. 1986: Monash’s Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences designed and synthesised the antiflu drug Relenza, a drug that is now used globally.
Today our ambition and optimism are stronger than ever. We have a clear vision of what we want our research to achieve and how we’ll help our researchers make it happen.
DID YOU KNOW? In 2017, we had 4874 graduate research students studying at Monash University with a total research income of $342 million. ? 2015 BUILDING STRONGER, LIGHTER PLANES WITH 3D PRINTING Professor Xinhua Wu and her team at the Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing (MCAM) are creating an aluminium alloy that will make aircrafts 30 to 40 per cent lighter, twice as fuel-efficient and still structurally sound.
So significant is this project that they’re working in close partnership with Microturbo, the European Space Agency and Bombardier. platforms.monash.edu/mcam 2017 PIONEERING DIABETES DEPARTMENT AT THE ALFRED Australia’s only university department dedicated to research into diabetes was launched in August 2017 by Federal Minister for Health Greg Hunt. Monash’s Department of Diabetes, led by Professor Mark Cooper AO, a senior endocrinologist at The Alfred hospital, will comprise a team of 60 scientists researching strategies to combat diabetes and its complications, including kidney and heart disease, and blindness.
2017 TACKLING GLOBAL ENERGY CHALLENGES Bringing together a unique and diverse team of international researchers and organisations, Monash research tackles global energy challenges through the establishment of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future LowEnergy Electronics Technology. Commencing operations in 2017, the centre acts as an international hub to combine high impact Monash research with global expertise, placing Australia at the forefront of new materials technology and research. 2017 GLOBAL SLUM REVITALISATION In only one of four successes selected from more than 600 applications worldwide, Monash was awarded a $14-million grant for a research project that will significantly advance human health and lives of more than a billion who live in urban slums globally.
This research will deliver the first ever public health and environmental data on the outcomes of an alternative water management approach, forming the basis for policies and strategies of urban informal settlements worldwide. 2018 VICTORIAN HEART HOSPITAL The Victorian Heart Hospital is a flagship health project dedicated to improving cardiac health outcomes. Operated by Monash Health and located within the Monash University campus, the hospital will significantly increase access to world-leading cardiology services and boost Victoria’s medical industry and economy. 7 2020 INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE COURSE GUIDE

Professional entry master’s courses These courses are specifically designed to prepare you to enter a regulated profession such as law, accounting or teaching. These courses can take two to four years to complete, depending on the discipline. Some of these areas can also be studied at an undergraduate level; however a professional-entry master’s course is ideal if you make the decision to enter a different field to that of your first course. Expert master’s courses These courses allow you to extend expertise gained through your undergraduate degree, or add breadth to your knowledge and skills within a new or complementary field.
If you complete a four-year honours bachelor’s degree, you can usually complete an expert master’s degree in the same discipline in just one year, meaning you graduate with both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years. See pages 20-21 for a full list of coursework courses.

Through our online distance learning, you can study with Australia’s biggest university without ever having to set foot on campus.

You’ll study the same units and gain the same qualification as you would if you were on campus. It includes a combination of print study material and electronic communication.

I fell in love with Australia and chose Monash for its reputation and recommendation by my high school mentor.
Throughout my studies I had the opportunity to work on a range of diverse projects that align to my interests and dealt with real-life issues. The connections I made and the experience was invaluable. It allowed me to graduate with a job at a landscape architecture firm.” JEAN-CHRISTOPHE OLIVIER PETITE Bachelor of Architectural Design and Master of Architecture (2018) 23 2020 INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE COURSE GUIDE
DESIGN Expert master’s In a rapidly transforming profession, designers need to be constantly developing innovative skills and knowledge to respond and be a leader in their field. Positioned at the intersection of several creative disciplines, our Master of Design provides you with the platform to explore advanced principles in contemporary design that’ll enhance your design practice and give you the platform to be an innovative leader. This project-based and studio-focused course offers the opportunity to extend your learning within a specialisation area of interaction design, multimedia design or collaborative design.
Alternatively, you can choose from a range of units from across these three areas to construct a specialisation in advanced study in design. Central to this course are four core design studios that’ll engage you with design systems, services, processes, environments and objects. In addition to the core design studios, you’ll undertake studies in design thinking, allowing you to analyse realworld challenges through design thinking strategies and approaches. Further studies will build your capabilities in design research, management and entrepreneurialism, culminating in a major project and exegesis.
This program is ideal for those with an undergraduate degree in any discipline who are keen to enter the expanding fields of professional design engagement, or for design practitioners aiming to upgrade their expertise. Specialisations Collaborative design Collaborative design places you conceptually and practically at the intersection of interior, graphic and industrial design practice. The program will set you design challenges involving image, text, products, narratives, systems, services, public and private space, materiality and virtuality. You’ll develop independent conceptual and practical design skills alongside an ability to be part of collaborative design processes.
You’ll expand your awareness across design disciplines, develop multidisciplinary design expertise, and build broader skills in leadership, professional adaptability and complex project planning. Interaction design This specialisation develops your skills in the design of contemporary artefacts, products and services that engage with interactive, userfocused technologies and processes. These can include, but aren’t limited to, health and medical equipment, ‘smart’ furniture, educational toys, wearable technologies, information kiosks and transport systems. You’ll use a diverse range of interactive processes, including the application of advanced technologies, electronics and programming, physical and virtual interface manipulation, engineering and material fabrication, and rapid prototyping.
The specialisation gives you an understanding of the relationship between interactive activities, products and human behaviour. Multimedia design Multimedia design develops your skills in digital communication environments. This includes designing for the web, motion and animation, and interactive touchscreen devices and surfaces. Emphasising an advanced knowledge of existing and emerging digital design processes and systems, this specialisation embraces projects of varied scale, from hand-held smart devices to large public interactive screens. It develops your ability to build a communication narrative, use multimedia processes to fill community and business needs, and understand the end-user’s engagement with projects or products such as websites, apps and other screen-based media.
Advanced studies in design Construct an individual program of study from across interaction design, multimedia design and collaborative design. This enables you to tailor your unit choices while addressing the fundamental principles of advanced design practice and thinking. It’ll inspire you to connect research and practice across the design disciplines, and to become a thoughtful design practitioner. You’ll broaden your knowledge of key design constructs, deepen your professional learning in design areas of interest, and advance your capacity as a design professional.

URBAN PLANNING AND DESIGN Professional entry master’s Complex urban problems require planning professionals who are versatile and multifaceted. They need to be persuasive collaborators, articulate mediators and strategic organisers. Our Master of Urban Planning and Design prepares future professionals with the skills, knowledge and imagination to create equitable and sustainable civic visions and strategies for our evolving built environments and communities, whether you’re keen to upskill or change career. As a Monash Urban Planning and Design graduate, you’ll be ready to work towards a welldesigned and planned people-centric future.
How the course works The course is centred on four project-based learning themes: compact city, ecological city, sprawling city and inclusive city. You’ll integrate design skills and thinking with planning knowledge in real-world learning environments, and engage in lectures, workshops, seminars and field visits. You can tailor your studies to individual interests with elective units on topics that include transport, sustainable development, economics, Indigenous perspectives or international development. You can also undertake an exegesis as a springboard for a PhD.
To summarise, the course comprises four project studio units, four stand-alone complementary depth study units, two applied professional practice units and two elective units. Where could it lead you? Employers now require planners who can bring fresh perspectives to solving urban problems, and readily adapt to new roles in the workplace. This course puts you ahead of the competition by training you to integrate design with traditional policy-based knowledge. There are many directions your career might take, and you can be employed in challenging positions in a range of organisations. These include state agencies that manage water, the environment, transport and other infrastructure; local government as a strategic or statutory planner working on local development proposals or resolving community disputes; Australian or international firms that specialise in heritage and conservation planning, or in environmental management and economics; or in not-for-profit organisations in underdeveloped or overdeveloped places far and wide, where you’ll confront diverse climatic and cultural issues.
