BInfoTech, Monash Uni
Tech Lead & Backend Engineer
In 2016 two friends sat down to tackle a problem. Like many students, they found the time they were taking to decode the Monash Handbook and understand their course requirements was too much time lost from studying or, you know.... other university-related activities. So they decided to start up a website that would simplify the course planning process.
Now, monPlan is run by a team of more than ten Monash students. Our team consists of various students from across the Engineering and Information Technology facilities, and the project is supported by eSolutions as part of their Student First initiative. We have had several release cycles, each time updating and improving the user experience.
The monPlan team would love to say thanks to everyone who has given us feedback and support. You have made the Monash experience better, for students both now and in the future.Start planning my course View our Blog Submit Some Feedback
The monPlan Project is aimed at improving the Monash Journey, from Secondary School all the way to the completion of your course. Such as making the transition from Secondary Education to University more smoother and much more easily, by inspiring you What courses you can do and helping you discover how university functions.
Our vision for monPlan is for it to become a tool in which both new and current Monash students could not only use as a tool to help them plan their course, but also help students enrol in units. But also helping new students in picking a course, based off their future career.
Really really really good app! Has saved me heaps of time course planning.
monPlan is so much nicer to use now. Last time I gave up making my course plan after 3 semesters and thought it was easier to do in Excel. Now it's pretty gosh darn good - did my whole course in like two minutes. Would use it instead of Excel and that's like the highest of all honours
Great new improvements with being able to load unit information and upload course maps!
I really like the user interface you've created. It's beautiful! Looks awesome, isn't oversaturated with information and is easy to use
This is a great site, I wish I'd had it when I was first an undergrad!
I loved that you guys are working on this. A team I was in showcased something like this mid-year 2016, but we didn't have the technical know-how to make it. Please make it awesome! :)
Here's some quick features about our web app!
View information about your unit, including the description, when and where the unit will be held, Prereqs, Coreqs, how many credit points and how much the unit costs (based on 2017 costs and for Domestic CSP students). As well as SETU ratings for that unit.
We have improved our validation, bringing smarter and clearer indication of where you may face problems from Course Advisors.
You can share and save your course as a link, otherwise you can also print it off and take it to a course advisor, easy right?.
We don't necessary have all the information about units that were done perviously, but we place faith in you in making your own unit. We believe that nothing will go wrong......
You can start off with by loading a course or with the old way, picking your start and end years
You can view information about your course such as Course Duration, required Credit points, etc.
