Dean's message

Elanor Huntington


The Vice-Chancellor is hosting another Staff Forum on Tuesday 13 October and will be releasing his response to the Stage 1 consultation process. There is also an update on the ANU Recovery Plan available.  As I’ve foreshadowed, I think it’s important to keep the window of uncertainty about impact as small as possible.  Everyone – rightly - wants to know what this means for them.  Assuming that there are no major surprises between now and then, I will be calling a College webinar for next Thursday to move to Stage 2 of the process.  We will be sending an invitation soon. 

The Vice-Chancellor has just announced we will going ahead with the 2020 Vice-Chancellors and Chancellors Awards. This is wonderful way to recognise all the hard work in our community this year. Please take a look at the categories and consider nominating.

Tomorrow is World Mental Health Day and a timely reminder to look after yourself and those around you. Check in with each other, and check out these resources.

Welcome to the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science.

The College of Engineering and Computer Science is an exceptional community of students, educators, scholars and researchers who embrace the breadth of the computing and engineering professions. We are a diverse and vibrant community dedicated to discovery and to making knowledge matter.

Our academics and students are engaged in ground-breaking, cutting-edge research, in exciting areas such as renewable energy, robotics, telecommunications, biomaterials, human-machine interaction, and artificial intelligence. We collaborate with researchers around the world from a range of globally recognised Universities.

Our undergraduate degrees are designed for engineers and computing professionals of the 21st century, where students have access to internationally recognised experts conducting pioneering interdisciplinary research. We work with a range of partners in government and industry and have strong links to premier organisations such as Ford, Dolby, Boeing, CSIRO and the Australian Signals Directorate.

The ANU has become the first Australian university to be accepted into the US National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenge Scholars Program. This opens the way for ANU engineering and computer science students to connect with students from some of the world's best Universities to tackle major global challenges, such as the need for clean energy, access to clean water, keeping cyberspace secure and the need for better medicines.

We are seeking to build for the future by hiring the best early career academics and providing them with the support and facilities to thrive. The College is in the midst of redeveloping its built environment, helping us to create an inviting and cohesive College precinct for our staff and students. This is will be an exciting year for the College and we hope you can be a part of it.
