The Australian National University provides PhD students with a vibrant research community and outstanding program support. When selecting a research program, an institution's reputation is everything. ANU is one of the world's leading universities, and the smart choice for your research program.
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.
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. 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.
As a PhD student you will work with increased independence, under the direction of a supervisory panel of experts in the field. Your research will make an original and important contribution to human knowledge, research and development.
We have research opportunities in a wide range of fields across engineering and computer science. Career options following completion of a Doctor of Philosophy include many opportunities in addition to an academic path such as research opportunities in industry or commercialisation of your research through a start-up.
Some of our alumni hold positions as company directors, chief technology officers, senior managers, and consultants to major industry bodies and organisations in Australia and internationally.
To be eligible for admission to the Doctor of Philosophy program you should have completed a relevant four-year undergraduate degree from an eligible university, or a postgraduate qualification with a significant research thesis component. There must be a supervisor at the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science who is available and willing to supervise your research, and you must have identified a research project.
