About

We are dedicated to contributing to The Australian National University’s reputation for excellence in research and research-led education.

With the combined capacity of the Research School of Engineering and Research School of Computer Science, we are at the leading edge within numerous fields, including logic, algorithms and data, signal processing, artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics, computational mechanics, materials, fabrication, big software systems, energy, networked systems and quantum cybernetics. Our world-class academics undertake high-quality research, training of research students and coursework teaching programs. With small classes, our students benefit from being part of a dynamic and pioneering research environment.

We recruit and develop future leaders, both students and academics, who will find sustainable solutions to some of the world’s greatest technological and social challenges—including those that have not even been discovered yet. Students are provided with the best educational and research training experience to ensure that they have a comprehensive understanding of a range of interconnected disciplines.

In collaboration with an extensive network of academic, government and industry partners in Australia, Europe, the Asia Pacific and the United States, we are delivering innovations in many areas. For instance, we are collaborating with Ford Motor Company and Boeing to ensure that their structures are lighter, stronger and more energy efficient. Our large-scale computational research supports product development at companies including Microsoft Research, Facebook, Google, Intel, IBM and Oracle. We also provide specialist advice to business, governments and various professional bodies that influences public policy and decision making. Our students have opportunities to engage with government and industry partners during research training activities.

Not only do we deliver technological innovation to society, we also raise community awareness of how advancements in engineering and computer science are enriching people’s daily lives. We achieve this by equipping academics and students with strong communication and leadership skills.

Ultimately, our breakthrough research, incisive knowledge exchange transfer, and commercialisation of game-changing technologies are making significant contributions to a vibrant world economy and safer global community.
