The Department of Computing is committed to furthering our collective success by welcoming new students, researchers and stakeholders into our community.

As an immensely popular field, we open our doors to high school students looking to learn more about the many opportunities available at Macquarie University. We have also established a training program for high school teachers to grasp an understanding of our teaching methods, expertise and capabilities.

The department continues to enjoy our unique initiative as a purpose-built hub that brings industry partners, students of all levels and academics of various backgrounds together.

If you’d like to find out more about events, seminars, and other ways we can engage with you, please contact us.
