Head of School

Professor Aaron Quigley.Welcome to the School of Computer Science and Engineering

I am honoured to be leading Australia’s most prestigious and established School of Computer Science and Engineering.

The School was founded over two decades ago and today is known for its vibrant and nurturing community that fosters an environment where our students, academics and researchers collaborate in advancing their engineering skills, scientific knowledge, creativity and leadership in the computing field.

We are recognised for providing the most technically challenging computing degrees in Australia, producing entrepreneurial students who are sought after by leading employers here and throughout the world.

Our research spans both scientific discoveries and technological developments in the broad fields of Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Embedded and Operating Systems, Networks, Programming Languages, Service-Oriented Computing, Software Engineering, Theory, and CSE is a partner with Data61 (formally NICTA) and the Cybersecurity Cooperative Research Centre.

In our education and research endeavours, we foster strong partnerships with industry, government, and the community, and I look forward to further growing these relationships as we address significant global challenges to meet the demands of society and improve lives.

I am really excited about the opportunities ahead for our School. If you would like to be a part of CSE’s next chapter through research, industry collaboration, or taking the first steps towards pursuing computer science as a career, we would be delighted to hear from you
