CECS expansion presentation by Prof Elanor Huntington

ANU Professor Elanor Huntington, Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS), is leading a project to reimagine a new type of engineering and computing, one that is custom built and fit for the middle of the 21st century.

This project aims to get us thinking about what our world will be like in 2050, when we are completely embedded in both a digital and physical environment, and to encourage us to take charge and shape a new intellectual agenda.

And this needs to happen now!
