Student Event: Lunch with the Dean

CECS students are invited to a lunchtime forum with College Dean, Professor Elanor Huntington.

This is a chance to hear more about Reimagine, an ANU project that aims to explore why the engineering and computing disciplines need to evolve to meet the demands of the highly connected future and solve large global issues.

It’s an exciting time and as the future engineering and computing leaders we want you to be involved.

You’re encouraged to come along with questions for the Dean.

RVSP to attend.

About Reimagine

The ANU 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.th a digital and physical environment, and to encourage us to take charge and shape a new intellectual agenda.

Biography

Professor Elanor Huntington is the first female Dean of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University. She is committed to growing the profile of Engineering in the community and is passionate about attracting more young women to take up careers that draw on STEM skills.

In June 2014, Professor Huntington was appointed the Dean of the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science and prior to that was the Head of the School of Engineering and Information Technology with UNSW Canberra at the Australian Defence Force Academy.

She is excited to be leading a project to reimagine a new type of engineering and computing, fit for the middle of the 21st century. This project is all about understanding and shaping large-scale systems of people acting and interacting with each other through their digital and physical environments.  She started talking about this idea in her TEDxSydney talk in 2017.

Professor Huntington has a PhD (2000) in experimental quantum optics from ANU and her current research interests are in the control of quantum systems, with a particular interest in the interface between theory and applications. She is also a program manager in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology.
