The ANU Master of Applied Cybernetics is our flagship education program. It is the first of its kind and the only master’s program in applied cybernetics in the world.

Through this program we are establishing cybernetics as an important tool for navigating major societal transformations, through capability building, policy development and safe, sustainable and responsible approaches to new technological systems, like Artificial Intelligence and the metaverse. ​ ​ Our goal is to build a new generation of practitioners who will shape a future that we want through and with technology. ​

The program offers a transformational education experience, drawing upon high-impact research, and creating meaningful engagements with industry and the broader community.

Our graduated master’s students have gone on to senior leadership roles in digital, data and AI in federal and state governments, non-profits and industry, as well as on to PhDs with top universities.
