Positives: Monash got a lot of libraries for each field of study. The wifi in the campus is superbly fast! You can rewind every lecture in the recording session. All over monash is a worldclass university.
Negatives: The price is to expensive for international student. We also hard to get scholarship
My advice to future students is: Monash is out of the city. Make sure you go to monash for study, not for playing:)
I majored in Mechanical engineering.
Positives: You will be able to meet different people from diverse background and different personalities to work together as a team to accomplish a project.
Negatives: heavy workload
My advice to future students is: study smart and network with other students
I majored in Mechanical Engineering.
Positives: 1. this course provides intensive units for future engineers to acquire their professional knowledge; 2. There are many international exchange students who you could share ideas and thoughts; 3. the opportunity to connect and work for top engineering corporations in final year programs
Negatives: 1. Too much theoretical things to learn, the study load is heavy; 2. The examinations are hard to pass; 3. Lecturers are strict.
My advice to future students is: Spend more time in computer lab to study, that is the only way you could possibly get through this course to the graduation. Work hard !
I major in Civil.
The lecturers are highly knowledgeable. The course requires that you get experience in the workforce meaning that you are more employable at the end. There is also vast industry involvement and interaction in your final years.
The lecturers aren't very good at teaching, there isn't highly accessible academic support, very difficult course expect to fail at least one subject and the support isnt great. Others negatives is that it's highly academic with little focus on preparation for the workplace.
My advice to future students is: Consider carefully if this is the course for you, it's not easy and will require a lot of time to do well. You will need to be good at math. Once you're in the course focus on getting internships and industry placement because at the end of the course, experience will outweigh HDs.
I majored in Mechanical Engineering.
Positives: As an engineer you are challenged to think and think hard. It is a hard course, i have suffered quite a lot, but it has opened up my thinking capabilities, which are very useful in today's market.
Negatives: The workload, which is immense and also having to learn concepts which at times you might have to teach yourself. You have to be self-sufficient and more importantly be willing to put in extra effort.
My advice to future students is: Be willing to work hard, that's the most practical advice i can give. For some people who are smart and easily understand concepts, might be easy for them, but if you work really hard, many sleepless nights and mental fortitude to push through, you can do it.
Positives: Wide coverage of relevant engineering knowledge
Negatives: Lacking practical work emphasis
My advice to future students is: Focus on practical aspects of engineering, relevant to work life
Positives: Detailed, covers different aspects
Negatives: There is a lack of coordination among different units with respect to the assignments and various assessments given.
My advice to future students is: Underloading is an option that they should consider especially in the last 2 years. It does wonders to their mental health and GPA
I majoring in Chemical engineering.
Positives: it's well structured, a lot of group-based project, study resources are abundant, supportive and healthy competition among peers, lecturers are open to feedback
Negatives: some lecturers are not clear when delivering their lectures due to strong accent, doesn't provide student with hands-on experience such as internship opportunity or field trip
My advice to future students is: Chemical engineering department in Monash uni has a good reputation. It's going to be a tough and tiring journey if you choose this path. If you are persistent and always keep in mind what you are here for then you might find this course to be a meaningful one. Enjoy every struggle and success along the way. To achieve success, plan ahead and use all the resources available. Remember that chemical engineering is unlike chemistry that you learn in high school! :)
Positives: It challenges the boundaries of my knowledge and imagination to solve seemingly simple yet complex everyday problems. I've gained useful skills that I can apply in my desired field and beyond.
Negatives: Time constraints. The course feels like it's compressed into the timeframe, and sometimes there isn't enough time to learn everything.
My advice to future students is: Research what this course entails, and talk to others taking the course to get an idea of what it requires. Keep up and keep your head up.
Positives: This course mostly taught me on how to work in a team. Therefore i managed to improve my communication skills, my decision making skills and how to solve conflict as a team.
Negatives: The negative aspect occurs when there are people who didn’t do work in team or when we get teammates that did not want to contribute much
My advice to future students is: Please improve communication skills because it will help you to engage with most students
