As the leading Australian provider of engineering and IT education and research for over 150 years, MSE is built around three key pillars: valuable research, captivating teaching and learning, and effective engagement to better engineer solutions today for the problems of tomorrow.

Our ten-year strategy, MSE 2025, is our School’s commitment to bring to life the University-wide strategy Growing Esteem and reinforces the University of Melbourne’s position as one of the best in the world. Investment in new infrastructure, strengthening industry engagement and growing the size and diversity of our staff and student base to drive innovation and develop the transformative technologies of the future are all fundamental principles underpinning MSE 2025.

Putting knowledge into action, MSE is set to open two major new sites within the next five years. The Fishermans Bend campus will facilitate collaboration with leading local and international organisations across the transport, energy, manufacturing, water, food, mining, defence and infrastructure sectors.

The second precinct, Melbourne Connect sits adjacent to the University’s main Parkville campus at the site of the old Royal Women’s Hospital. It is being redeveloped into Australia’s leading innovation hub, hosting researchers, companies, government bodies and community members. Across both sites, we will see unprecedented opportunity for collaboration and knowledge pooling amongst some of the world’s brightest engineering minds.

MSE 2025 is our bold 10-year strategy to transform the future of engineering and IT at the University of Melbourne and it’s never been a more exciting time to join us.
