In 2019, the 3A Institute launched our prototype graduate program, the Master of Applied Cybernetics. It is the world’s first graduate program focusing on the challenges of ensuring AI-enabled cyber-physical systems are safe, sustainable and responsible, where our students help to guide and accelerate a new branch of engineering into existence, not simply study its emergence. 


Our students come from a huge range of backgrounds, experiences and demographics – the new branch of engineering builds on existing strengths in cybernetics, computer science and engineering, and draws on design ethnography, critical studies of science and technology, philosophy, history, business strategy, and more.   


Meet our alumni of the Master of Applied Cybernetics. They represent a new type of practitioner who will help society navigate towards a safe, sustainable and responsible future.
