Our Place

Monash University

Monash University is Australia’s largest university and the largest employer in the Monash Precinct. It is critical to unlocking the value of the precinct. Beyond its regional impact, it aspires to meet the major global challenges of the next decade by focussing research and education efforts on addressing:

 

  • Climate change

  • Geopolitical insecurity, and

  • Healthy communities.

 

While the pandemic has had immediate effects on the operation of the University, it is more tightly focussed on this future direction and remains committed to leveraging excellence in research, education, and enterprise to these ends.

 

Monash Tech School is hosted by Monash University and located within its Clayton Campus.
