The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science is a constituent body of the Australian National University, comprising the Research School of Computer Science and the Research School of Engineering. The college has roughly 150 academic staff, 100 general staff, 200 higher degree research students, and 1,000 undergraduate students.
The Research School of Information Sciences and Engineering (RSISE) was established on 1 January 1994. RSISE resulted from the merger of the Department of Systems Engineering (1981) and the Computer Sciences Laboratory (1988), both of which were part of the Research School of Physical Sciences and Engineering (RSPhysSE). The Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT) was established in 1993, and the Research School joined in 2004 form a single institute that would become ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) on 1 January 2006. The 2006 merger joined the undergraduate and research activities into two schools; the Research School of Engineering and the Research School of Computer Science.
The Computer Science Students Association (ANU CSSA) caters to the needs of IT, Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSIT) students. The organization had existed since at least 1995, and was relaunched in 2011 and was allocated with a common room located in ANU's Computer Science & Information Technology Building.
The Engineering Students Association (ANU ESA) caters to the needs of Engineering students.
