The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) is one of the premier engineering and computer science research institutions in the world. Comprising the Research School of Computer Science and the Research School of Engineering, both are recognised as research leaders in their respective areas continuing the tradition of excellence in research and research-led education.  CECS collaborates on research projects with government departments (federal and state) and multinational corporations, helping to accelerate research and development programs and to introduce new technologies to the marketplace. CECS offers a wide range of coursework programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and also supervises students for higher degrees by research.  We offer undergraduate degrees in engineering, information technology and computer science along with masters and doctoral postgraduate programs.

As part of this plan there has been an identified need for a Strategic Project Team to be formed to develop and implement this expansion. The team will be tasked with the development and implementation of a blueprint that will deliver successful outcomes in the re-imagination of Engineering and Computer Science at ANU.

Under the general direction of the Senior Project Officer, the Project Officer will provide day to day support to the Strategic Project Team while also managing special projects and coordinating the associated activities to ensure high quality outcomes are delivered. The successful candidate will work collaboratively with a wide variety of stakeholders both internal and external to the College.
