The IEEE Monash Clayton Student Branch was founded in 2011 with the goal of improving the technical ability and career development of the students studying Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering and IT at the Monash University Clayton campus. While we initially focused our efforts on the development of post-graduate students, we have recently begun to organize activities targeted towards undergraduate development.

About Monash University
Monash University is the second oldest university in the state of Victoria and is one of the largest in Australia in terms of student body size. The university has a large network of seven local and international campuses, with five located in Victoria, one in South Africa, and another in Sunway, Malaysia. Monash also has international centres in China, Italy, and India.
Monash has one of the strongest undergraduate divisions in Australia while also maintaining a heavy focus on research, taking pride in being home to a large number of research facilities. The university forms healthy and mutually beneficial partnerships with the government, non-governmental organizations, and businesses to gain relevant information on issues, processes, and trends that could be used to update their course offerings, thereby ensuring that students gain knowledge that is directly applicable to the current national and global context.
Along with these features, Monash also offers its students the possibility of a unique global learning experience. Its education philosophy, called Monash Passport, is a unique approach that bridges education and career as a seamless process that enables students to have an effortless transition from learning to doing. The university’s motto, “Ancora Imparo”, literally means I am still learning, which reflects the approach that the school takes in shaping its courses and moulding its students.
