30 years of ANU Engineering

Join us to celebrate 30 years of engineering at ANU, as we look back at the past and to our future.

Looking back and looking forward

2020 marks 30 years of engineering at The Australian National University (ANU). Join us for a virtual celebration as we look at the past 30 years and look to our future.

In 1990, the first engineering undergraduate program was launched at the ANU. This new program was unique in Australia in its broad interdisciplinary approach known as ‘Systems Engineering’. What started off with an initial graduating class of 21 has now grown to 200 graduates a year, with our alumni working in the breadth of engineering fields all over the world.

Today, in keeping with the innovative approach in which we started, we continue to shape the discipline of engineering for the 21st century and beyond.




B.ENG cohort 1990

As part of our celebrations, we're planning a number of sessions for this celebration. Highlights include:

  • expert discussions on what engineering will look like in 2050

  • learn about engineering for social impact

  • discover renewable energy and sustainability

  • explore the future of engineering education, and

  • hear from and reconnect with classmates in our alumni community.
