Information for new students
Welcome to the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences
Information for new undergraduate students
Start of term: 07 October 2013
Term commences on Monday 7th October at 9am. Your introduction will include College activities during the weekend prior to the start of term.
On the Monday, Head of School will introduce you to the School. He will offer some advice relevant to your study areas. Following this, other staff will give short presentations on:
(i) Health and Safety issues
(ii) Our intranet (DUO) which you will use regularly to access course information and submit certain coursework
(iii) The structure and choices available to you on your particular degree courses
As part of your induction you will meet with your academic advisors (Monday afternoon for CS students, Tuesday morning for Engineering students) and make decisions about your free elective classes (you will register for these). You will also have your photograph taken. The photographs will be collated onto a course-board so that you can identify colleagues and assist you in locating fellow group members in joint project activities. These photographs (which appear centrally in the School) also enable your academic advisors to identify you easily.
On Wednesday, 9th October you will be involved in College activities and take part in the Fresher’s Fair. Your induction in the School begins again on Thursday, 10th October. More detailed information (including a timetable of activities) will be posted here nearer the start of term.
More information pertaining to your specific course will be available nearer the time through links here on this page.
