At Monash University, we are proud to have long-standing research and education collaborations with leading mining and resources organisations around the world.

METALLURGY AND ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING:  Metallurgy research at Monash is ranked #1 in Australia and in the top 10 in the world.  A large team of professors, researchers and students work with some of the world’s largest companies to solve pressing metals manufacturing, durability and design problems.

SHAPING MINING RAILWAYS:  The Institute of Railway Technology (IRT) at Monash University is the premier track and vehicle railway research centre in Australia and enjoys an international reputation for excellence in railway research and new technology development. Since 2000, IRT has completed over 450 projects for more than 150 national and international railway entities.

MINING REHABILITATION:  Monash is working in partnership with the Australian mining industry to address complex economic, social and environmental, engineering, ecological, landscape, aesthetic and sustainability issues associated with the closure and rehabilitation of mining operations.  Addressing these challenges requires a multi-disciplinary research approach to ensure that proposed solutions are technically sound, whilst meeting the needs of the community, industry and government stakeholders.

MACHINE MAINTENANCE:  The Maintenance Technology Institute (MTI) provides innovative and comprehensive industry focused research and development to achieve optimum plant and equipment performance across the mining and heavy engineering industries in Australia and overseas.

DRONES AND ANALYTICS FOR EXPLORATION AND MINING:  Our drones, advanced sensors and smart analytics are being used to map surfaces in 3D, characterise geology, extract environmental information, capture data over multiple flights to see how an area is changing in high resolution, and help with monitoring infrastructure.  We provide high resolution measurements ideal for open pits, outcrops and underground mines and have developed systems to rapidly analyse large datasets.

MONASH TALENT:  Ranked in the top 1% of world universities, and consistently rated as a preferred university from which to hire graduates, Monash delivers an enviable pipeline of talent to the resources industry.  With Australia’s number one Engineering school including a resources engineering specialisation, plus world-class Science, IT, Arts and Business faculties, Monash University’s highly regarded graduates are well prepared to meet the challenges of the future in the mining and resources field.

Further information about Monash’s capabilities in this area can be found at Mining, Resources and Metallurgy at Monash.
