About CECS

The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) has a track record of exceptional performance: a strong international research reputation based on a culture of excellence; a vibrant research-led education programme; and strong contributions in policy advice and community engagement.

The College has over 2400 people (staff, students & visitors), of which there are approximately 1200 undergraduate and 400 postgraduate students about 20% of which are female.

CECS comprises the Research School of Computer Science and the Research School of Engineering and is recognised as a leader in the areas of algorithms and data, applied signal processing, artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics, logic and computation materials and manufacturing, software intensive systems engineering, sustainable energy, and systems and control.

We conduct research and teaching that aims to deliver solutions to some of the most pressing technological and environmental challenges the world faces, recruiting and nurturing students and academics who will lead the way in finding solutions to these challenges - some of which haven’t been thought of yet.

We are committed to:

improving the world we live in by advancing and transferring knowledge through research and teaching;

providing students with the best educational and research training experience to ensure they are equipped with a broad knowledge and understanding of other disciplines, communication and leadership skills;

raising community awareness of the important role of engineers and computer scientists in driving critical thinking that helps to form public policy and decision-making.

Our academic staff members are world class, undertaking high quality research, research student training and teaching in coursework programs. With relatively small classes led by world renowned experts, our students benefit from being part of a dynamic and intellectual research environment.

The College has an extensive network of international collaboration with research institutions and industries in Europe, the Asia Pacific and the USA, as well as locally, e.g. NICTA, the national centre of excellence in ICT, and CSIRO, as well as being actively engaged with the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) facility, located on campus and home to Australia’s largest open supercomputer system.

Members of the College also provide specialist advice to business, the Federal Government and its agencies, and play an active role in appropriate professional bodies.
