Transforming our world

Our world needs answers, and it needs them now.

Our world faces increased burdens caused by disease, the need to produce more food and resources without harming the environment, and new industries for alternative livelihoods in a time of rapid change.

Ƶhas the expertise and the ambition to deliver solutions that will transform our world. And it is our donors who are our greatest asset in supporting our potential and accelerating our impact. Together we can pull the excellence in research from across our university and apply it to the grand challenges facing our world.

If Australia is to remain at the forefront of advanced economies, it is vital that we invest in the next generation of leaders in STEM fields. That’s why we established a scholarship program with ANU, a university with world-class research and teaching capability.
Ian Irving, Chief Executive for Australia, Northrop Grumman Corporation
As the only national University we have a responsibility to build future intellectual capacity for Australia. Rather than just tweaking existing disciplines we need to develop a new set of questions and perspectives. In this context we’ve embarked on an ambitious plan to redevelop computer science and engineering for the 21st century.
