Engage with us

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.

Summer 2018 Computing Undergraduate Research Track workshops

The Computing Undergraduate Research Track is a series of bi-annual workshops where academics from Macquarie University and experts from outside the University mentor outstanding undergraduate students to solve real research problems.

The next workshop is running the 10th to the 14th of December 2018 and will include the following projects:

  • Visualising Connections. Can we show social network data in a discoverable way?
  • Cognition of Coding. How do people come to learn how to program and what cognitive processes aid them in this journey?
  • Automating GSR Data Analysis. Can we write a provably correct algorithm to turn raw GSR data into stress level markers?
  • Playing with certainty. Can we write animations that are mathematically proven to be glitch-free?
  • Processing all way down.  Can we create curriculum-aligned activities for primary and secondary students using the Processing animation/games language?

If you would like to register your interest please contact Dr. Matthew Roberts (matthew.roberts@mq.edu.au).
