Short courses at the Centre for STEM Education and Innovation
The Centre for STEM Education and Innovation (CSEI) develops bespoke education courses for industry and student participants. These specialised courses are delivered by our world-leading experts from across the Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology including from within our School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences.
Support and life on campus
The Computer Science Learning Centre (CSLC) is a dedicated space for students undertaking Computer Science subjects. Third year and postgraduate computer science students are regularly available in the centre for on-demand programming assistance, to any students wanting programming support.
There are many opportunities to meet other students and develop new skills by getting involved with clubs and competitions including:
ACM programming contest
Computer science students compete in the annual Association for Computing Machinery International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). University of Adelaide teams have won the prestigious competition many times and have also taken out the Asia-Pacific Region title.
Adelaide Competitive Programming Club
The CPC club is run by University of Adelaide students and is dedicated to hosting practice programming competitions and training workshops. Come along to solve problems, discuss algorithms and celebrate with free food.
COMAP’s Mathematical Contest in Modelling (MCM) and Interdisciplinary Contest in Modelling (ICM) are international contests for high school students and University undergraduates. Check the COMAP website for upcoming dates.
Computer science student club
The computer science student club organises social events; technical presentations from industry, staff and students; and study assistance for all computer science students.
Women in STEM Society
The Women in STEM Society at the University of Adelaide was created to establish a community of women, and for those who support diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths. The club runs social events, and informative talks for university students, and has a focus on providing role models to all levels of education.
As a student at the Faculty of Science, Engineering, and Technology our support team provides information, resources and support services to ensure you get the most out of your studies.
“Studying at Adelaide has given me the opportunity to work with internationally-recognised researchers on exciting projects as part of a world-class education. The University’s industry connections helped me secure a job with Microsoft in Silicon Valley where I apply my skills to help improve speech recognition.”
