Who We Are

Monash Human Power is a student-led engineering team based at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Since 2015 we have been designing, manufacturing, and racing fully-faired human-powered vehicles (HPVs) to push the limits of human speed.

Our Mission

Our team’s vision is to make the fastest HPV in Australia, and eventually the world. We’re hoping to break the HPV land-speed record in Australia (currently 96.7km/h) having ridden at faster speeds during the 2023 World Human Powered Speed Challenge, an international competition in the U.S. which we plan to return to in 2025. With support from Monash University and the Engineering faculty, we strive to provide a space where Monash students can develop valuable, real-world experience which they can carry on into their careers. Alongside our technical goals, we also aim to promote STEAM to the wider community within the framework of HPVs through school outreach programs.

The Competitions

MHP participates in several HPV competitions in Australia and around the world, such as the World Human Powered Speed Challenge. Making something we can all be proud of in Nevada.


Monash Human Power is proud to offer a robust schools program that is tailored to the 'Science as a human endeavour' Level 9 and 10 Science achievement standards of the Victorian Curriculum. We hope to inspire a passion for STEM and sustainability in your students. We also run workshops for schools competing in the Victorian HPV Super Series.
