We are seeking creative problem finders, people who will find the right kinds of problems, the solving of which are truly transformational.
Our world needs people who can design and safely operate the engine that is our society. We believe that engineers and computing experts in the 21st century must bring together expertise on people, technological systems and science.
To create the experts our world needs, we will reimagine the traditional engineering and computing disciplines. We will give shape to new bodies of knowledge to equip our people to ask the right kind of questions from a people-centric, technological and scientific perspective.
We will inspire a new generation of high-potential, creative people to come to engineering and computing with a diverse range of interests, motivations, perspectives and career aspirations. We will nurture them to go out into the world to find the right kinds of problems, and solve them in ways which are truly transformational.
We are looking for people who believe in the same things we do and who want to create something exceptional. Unlock your imagination and reach out.

Reimagining Engineering and Computing
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 is the largest strategic investment the ANU has made since inception.
