The School of Computing has a strong foundation in computing and information sciences at ANU, with four broad focus areas, or activity Clusters: Intelligent Systems, Data Science/Analytics, Computing Foundations, and Computational Science. Each Cluster has an Academic Lead who is responsible for shaping the education, research, and engagement activities in their Cluster. This structure allows for the concentration of resources and activities to increase potential for meaningful impact.
