Mechanical engineering is about turning energy into motion and power. It covers the generation, conversion, transmission and use of mechanical and thermal energy, and includes the design, construction and operation of devices and systems. It also involves the behaviours of solids, liquids and gases when forces are applied and when they are heated and cooled.
As a mechanical engineer you could work in research and development, product and process design, technical sales and support, manufacturing, field and test engineering, project management, systems design and power plant operations and quality control. You could work in the petrochemical, automotive, transportation, aerospace, electronic, mining and robotic industries.

When specialisation in the field of mechanical engineering begins at level two of the program, it focuses on engineering practice and the engineering sciences. At level three, engineering science and practice studies are extended to a professional level and students are encouraged to learn independently by utilising learning resources available to them.
At level four, students undertake an independent full-year project in an area of personal interest. The results of this project are presented and examined by thesis. In addition, students
complete one professional practice and one design core unit plus three engineering electives offering scope for specialisation. An interfaculty business unit completes the final level.
To enter Monash University, students must satisfy particular academic, English language and age requirements.
