Monash - Australia’s most innovative university by Reuters

As Australia continues to deliver on its innovation agenda, Monash University has achieved top spot as Australia’s most innovative university in the Reuters Top 75: Asia’s Most

Innovative Universities, climbing from second place in 2016.

The Reuters Top 75: Asia’s Most Innovative Universities is a list that identifies and ranks the universities doing the most to advance science and invent new technologies. In the 2017/2018 QS World University Rankings, Monash was placed Top 60th in the world. Monash has also been consistently ranked #1 in Chemistry, engineering and technology and pharmacy and pharmaceutical science in Australia.  Check our popular Bachelor and Master courses in:

An example of how to deliver innovative solutions to critical global infrastructure problems is the creation of Monash Infrastructure (MI) which brings together Monash’s strong

connections with industry and government to address real world high impact needs. One of the many projects supported by MI is the export of green water technologies to

Southeast Asia. Researchers from Monash Infrastructure are developing and tailoring innovative solutions such as bio filters and rain gardens to solve problems including urban

flooding, water pollution and water shortages.

Melbourne Water has already installed over 10,000 rain gardens based on Monash designs, and the technology is also being exported to drought-prone Israel.
