Meet our Engineering students
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
Majoring in Mechatronics Systems
“My time at ANU has proven to be uniquely challenging yet enriching. I have been provided with a diverse range of opportunities and tools, that have enabled me to further develop my academic and professional capabilities beyond the classroom.”
“The degree’s systems engineering structure builds upon skills learnt in your first semester and bridges across disciplines. This provides an intuitive and contextualized understanding of engineering and its relevance in the world.”
“I’ve really enjoyed the practical components of my courses – such as assembling electrical circuits and programming ‘Snake’ in Assembly.”
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons)/ Bachelor of Development Studies
“ANU was the perfect place to study for me, as I fell in love with the campus after visiting on open day. I have been inspired by my female course conveners and colleagues, and the prospect of encouraging more women to get involved in STEM to bridge this gender gap. Studying development studies alongside engineering has given me a refreshing perspective of the future of engineering and how it can be implemented to approach real world problems.”Learn more about studying Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
“At the end of high school, I couldn’t decide between studying astrophysics or engineering, but at ANU I was able to do both. ANU is also well known for having excellent rankings for its research, which I think is so important because you are often being taught by professors that are really at the top of their fields.”Learn more about our Undergraduate degrees
Meet our Computing students
Bachelor of Advance Computing
“The ANU Extension program was integral to my decision to come to ANU. It gave me a good introduction to ANU class structure and expectations. The experience was made so positive by the lecturers, Dr Ben Swift and Ushini Attanayake, who delivered the content with such proficiency and deep passion for the subject and teaching us.”Learn more about studying a Bachelor of Advanced Computing
Bachelor of Computing
“Studying at the ANU was definitely a courageous step for me. But I feel that going thousands of kilometres away from my home has been worth it … I always sought a very diverse, supportive, and challenging university atmosphere.”
“Since the very start of my degree, my professors have given us a glimpse of the research being done here and opportunities that might open-up for students in the future.”
Meet our Flexible Double Degree students
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons)/Bachelor of Science
“I love the intersection between mathematics and computer science and I believe that being multi-disciplined expands one’s ability to be flexible in their approach and thus, contribute from varying lines of reason.
Our systems-inspired degree, when appreciated and fully realised is an extremely powerful skill set.”
“ANU is probably the most progressive in humanitarian engineering and trying to develop the interface between modern technologies and growing underdeveloped communities is both novel and extremely fulfilling.”
Meet our Postgraduate students
Master of Computing
"Because it is a world-leading university with good academic reputation, particularly in my areas of interest I chose to continue my studies at ANU after completing my Undergraduate degree.”
“I really enjoy the guest lecturers from industry that present profound perspectives of the application of the content we are learning, as well as tips on how to enter the industry.”
Master of Engineering: Renewable Energy
“The Systems Engineering approach taught at ANU gives us the skills to contribute to cross-disciplinary problems. It’s shown me how to communicate engineering work and solutions, with both specialists and the general public. The program has equipped me with insight into complex practical and theoretical problems in the energy industry. I can also evaluate complex systems in terms of technical and social perspectives.”Learn more about our Postgraduate degrees
Master of Computing
"My Techlauncher project was really interesting – My teammates and I worked closely with our client, Research Graph, an open collaborative database that contains researchers, publications and other scholarly works, to make data extraction more specific, accurate and viewable. You meet great people, learn and work together with them, and become one of them. That’s how ANU taught me and changed me to become more forward thinking."Learn more about Zhaolians' journey at ANU
Graduate Diploma of Computing
“I chose ANU for its renowned faculty, global perspective, and vibrant academic community in computing. The university’s commitment to excellence aligned with my goals. I was also inspired by a successful colleague, an ANU graduate, who has showcased the institution’s impact on fostering exceptional working abilities and positive attitudes."Learn more about our Graduate Diplomas
PhD Nanomaterials for energy application
Ankita is completing her PhD in Nanomaterials for energy application and in 2017 she competed in the Three Minute Thesis competition, where she explained her PhD "Green Energy:
Is it completely green?"
Ankita has found a wonderful support network within ANU that forms a “competitive yet supportive work culture striving to achieve perfection but are motivated, compassionate and kind.” “ANU has the best environment for both personal and professional growth.
You will meet amazing scientists, mentors and friends. With their support you will find it easy to achieve your career and life goals,” said Ankita.
PhD in Computer Science
With a keen interest in psychology and technology, Chris has found the perfect balance as he completes his PhD with the Human Centred Computing Research Group.
“As a big consumer of technology, I love the idea of being able to help influence and shape the development of better and more useful technology,” said Chris.
“Across the university and with industry partnerships there are a lot of people who are well respected within the field, so it’s great to work alongside them on current issues”, said Chris.
While completing his PhD, Chris is working as a cyber security analyst with the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC). His placement is aligned with his current studies with his research skills, critical thinking, communication and personal responsibility a driving factor in his workplace success.
