About Monash University

Monash university, located in Melbourne, Australia has a rich history to flaunt. The university was established in the year 1958 in the original campus at the City of Clayton. The after War period required more graduates and schools were in short supply. The state of Victoria had only one university to produce intellectually sound students and so the then PM asked Sir Keith Murray to provide a possible solution to the problem at hand. The solution entailed a second university at Victoria. 1958 finally saw the passing of a new bill by the Victorian Education Minister John Bloomfield which enabled the establishment of a new university named ‘Monash’. The next year saw Louis Matheson, the English engineer, approached by Robert Blackwood to be first Vice-Chancellor of the university.  The year 1960 saw the university get Matheson as its first Vice Chancellor. The Forum was a new addition to the university infrastructure and provided students with a meeting ground and witnesses many antics even today. The same decade saw the rise of the faculty of Education and the establishment of the Centre for Research into Aboriginal Affairs. Law School and the Centre of Southeast Asian Studies were founded in 1964. The breakthrough came in 1966, when Maureen Brunt gets appointed as a chair in Economics at a university full of male professors. Two years after this, the MSA was formed in 1968. 

The 90s saw the merger of the university with the Gippsland Institute of Advanced Education, now called the Monash University College. The decade saw multiple campuses being a part of the main university as well as the first off campus graduation in Kuala Lumpur. A new campus to be made in Eastern Melbourne, commenced its building process in 1992. 2000s witnessed the continued rise of the university. A second offshore campus is established in South Africa. In 2004, the university became the first in Australia to have a digital library. Stem cell research, robotic heart surgeries and many more such developments pushed the university to be a pioneer in every field. The university still continues to be a front runner in Australian education industry.
