Liaison Meetings

The purpose of the committees is to discuss any problems or issues relating to PG Coursework and MRes units and students. These can range from the simple-to-fix (e.g. the tutorial room is too small) to the more general issues which contribute to the greater success of the unit.

Remember that participation in this committee is something that you should be proud to cite on your CV. Those who become actively involved in this process will receive a letter from the Head of the Computing Department formally thanking them for their contribution and commending their efforts to any prospective employers.

***Session 1, 2020 Liaison Meeting -  date and time will be advised by Week 3***

2019 Minutes

Students are also welcome to email the fse.compquery@mq.edu.au for any issues regarding their studies.
