Diploma of Engineering
Our diploma of engineering prepares you for your engineering degree at Monash University. After successfully completing a Monash College diploma and achieving the required destination degree score, you will have guaranteed entry into second year at Monash University.
You’ll learn how to apply maths and science to develop new technologies, and adapt existing ones.
How the program works
Our diplomas are in two parts, part 1 and part 2. The entry requirements in part 2 are higher. In part 1, you’ll learn about the maths and science theory and practical skills you’ll need for university. In part 2, you’ll study the same subjects as first year university students and develop your specialist knowledge of engineering. Assessments include group projects, presentations, poster presentations, tutorial assessments and a final exam.
