CECS Higher Degree Research (HDR) Orientation day

Have you recently commenced a CECS HDR program? Join us for a one day orientation program. This is open to all candidates who are yet to complete their Induction milestone.


We will be welcoming new CECS Higher Degree Research (HDR) cohort to the CECS community and providing information on what you need to know to navigate your research program successfully. 


This is a wonderful opportunity to make new connections and network amongst the cohort of HDR candidates and academics from across the College. You will hear from the College Interim Dean, school directors, the student services team, as well as research speakers on HDR in context of the real world. Also, don't miss out on your chance to grab some free CECS merch! 


Complimentary catering to be provided. If you have any dietary requirements, please ensure you record this when registering.
