The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science consists of the Research School of Engineering and the Research School of Computer Science. The College is led by the College Dean who is in turn advised by the College Executive committee which is established under the ANU College Governance rules (legislation).
College Executive Committee
The Executive Committee meets monthly and provides advice to the Dean on the strategic direction of the College, as well as updates on individual portfolios, for example Education and Research.
Established by Rule 4 of the ANU College Governance rules, the College Forum is held once in each semester. The Forum provides an opportunity for the Dean and members of the College Executive committee to report on operational matters to the wider College.
Rule 8 directs the Dean to “after taking advice from the College Executive Committee, establish specialist committees, as sub-committees of the College Executive Committee, to advise the College Executive Committee or College Dean on matters relating to education and research.”
The Education Committee provides advice to the Executive Committee on strategic planning for improvements in education.

Web Management Committee
The Web Management Committee will be the authoritative body for all decisions made in relation to the College’s website governance and administration in-line with University policy.
Access & Equity Committee

Equally, the Committee will assist the College in promoting staff diversity, supporting women to advance their careers, recruiting and retaining indigenous staff, and creating an inclusive and safe work environment where all staff are treated with respect.
