About the Faculty of Engineering

Overview of Technical Services

Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering Technical Services iLab Core. The Faculty of Engineering offers a broad range of technical services, these are provided through our departments. Our significant capabilities support many activities, including: manufacturing and fabrication (mechanical, civil and electronics) equipment, chemical and materials expertise, laboratory and testing support, occupational health and safety, design (CAD) and many others. We support the technical requirements of academics, students, departments and external (e.g., industry and government) partners. If you have technical requirements for a project in research or teaching, or simply need advice, please contact us through the request services tab on this page.

Trained users may request equipment bookings on the Department's iLab core.                                               


Department of Civil Engineering

Trained users may request equipment bookings on the Department's iLab core.


Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering

We provide mechanical workshop capabilities including milling, turning, sheet metalwork and welding, and electronic workshop capabilities including surface-mount testing and repair. We also offer CAD design services for mechanical and electronics work. The ECSE team also provide CNC aluminum maching services - additional information on our capability can be found here

Trained users will soon be able to request equipment bookings on the Department's iLab core (currently under construction).


Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Materials engineers make a unique contribution – not just by making new materials, but also by improving what we already have. Here at Monash, our graduates and researchers are making things stronger, lighter, more functional, more sustainable and more cost-effective. Their contributions underpin all aspects of engineering, manufacturing and health sciences. Not surprisingly – they’re increasingly in demand.

Our Technical Officers are able to assist with machine malfunctions, repairs, design consultations and the machining of items related to research.

Trained users may request equipment bookings on the Department's iLab core. Training for the New Horizons LN2 Facility may also be requested through the Department's core.
