STUDENT GUIDE AUTUMN 2012
WHERE CREATIVITY MEETS TECHNOLOGY
Welcome from the Dean of Engineering and Information Technology Professor Hung Nguyen For students new to the Faculty, we extend a very warm welcome to you; and for continuing students, welcome back. My colleagues and I in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology are here to help you from your very first day of enrolment right through to the day of your graduation. Between these two end-points of your stay with us, you will have many questions and probably need help from various people. This student guide is intended to answer the vast majority of your questions or at least point you in the right direction. Please read it, keep it handy and refer back to it throughout the year. I wish you every success in your studies and future career.
