The ANU College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics programs, courses, and research opportunities are offered under our world-class Schools and innovation Institutes. We also have several on-campus centres, strategic collaborations, and partnerships.
The School of Engineering is a creative mix of staff and students that embrace the breadth of engineering professions from materials and manufacturing, to robotics, solare energies and technologies, telecommunications and systems. Our research covers a broad range of areas in engineering, including Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Mechatronics.
The ANU School of Computing offers programs that combine knowledge and understanding of computer science and technology, with experiential learning for skills development. Our education programs focus on the disciplines of computer science, computing, information technology, and software engineering. They emphasise foundations, creativity, design and engineering processes. Our research is concentrated in Computing Foundations, Intelligent Systems, Computational Science, Data Science and Analytics, and Software Innovation. We have research collaborations with CSIRO Data61, Australia’s leading digital research network, and a number of international organisations.
The School of Cybernetics is establishing programs that blend education, research and engagement to create a new generation of practitioners who are ready to tackle the challenges of the 21st century. Cybernetics is at the heart of our work and is a tool that sparks new ways of thinking and possibilities for the future. Through our programs we are building a new branch of engineering to safely, sustainably and responsibly scale cyber-physical systems. We focus on systems as a unit of analysis and driver of action for industries working with complexity and we are generating new approaches to shape the future through and with technology.
The Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program is pioneering pathways for the integration and optimisation of energy storage in electricity grids and markets globally. With a strong focus on interdisciplinary research, development and demonstration (RD&D), the program is delivering nationally significant infrastructure projects.
A centre of excellence for ground-breaking research, capacity building and nurturing the talent Australia needs to secure our national interests. Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) and The Australian National University (ANU) have entered into a 15-year partnership centred in the ASD-ANU Co-Lab, a new unclassified research facility on the ANU campus.
CSIRO’s Data61 is Australia’s data innovation network, that transforms existing industries and creates new ones through the application of science and technology. As an applied Research & Development partner of ANU, Data61 has capabilities in cybersecurity, confidential computing, IoT, robotics, machine learning and analytics, software and programming to behavioural sciences and more.
The National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) Facility is an initiative of the Australian Government, hosted at ANU. The national facility houses the nation’s most powerful supercomputer (Gadi), highest performance research cloud, and leading data services stack.
ANU plays a major role in guiding the future of the Web as host of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Australia Office. The W3C is an international consortium of over 400 member organisations that work together to define international standards and guidelines to shape the future of the Web. As host of the W3C Australia Office, our researchers have the opportunity to work with leading companies in the web space, including Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Facebook. ANU is helping W3C serve the needs of the community in technology, research, business, industry and government, while staying at the forefront of the latest developments and ideas in Web technology.
