A three-dimensional topological field theory of the Witten type is constructed. The system consists of an SU (2) gauge field $Ai^a$ and a Higgs field $H^a$ giving rise to monopole sectors. The theory describes the moduli space of monopoles. The complete set of topological invariants of this field theory is written down.
