The School provides resources for PhD and MSc research candidates in Computer Science and Software Engineering.
Research students will be allocated a desk, chair, bookshelf and lockable drawer if required in one of the School’s research laboratories. Access to the School building and various facilities is by access card, available from the School Manager. Research accommodation is arranged around research groups in the School.
The School provides each graduate research candidate with a standard computer for their research, up to the value of $1500. Students should discuss their computing needs with their supervisors before ordering a computer. Ensure your quotation includes a three-year warrantee. Laptops should have case and security cable.
Funding for any extra computing equipment or software required to complete the agreed course of research must be discussed and agreed with the candidates’ supervisors when the Research Proposal is prepared. Provision for later applications to amend the project and apply to increase computing resources is subject to available funds.
Assistance in statistics is available for Postgraduates students by research at the UWA Centre for Applied Statistics.
The School provides funds through the co-ordinating supervisor’s research account to support research candidates’ attendance at conferences where they are presenting a paper, and for research visits to other groups. Consult the School’s policy on research related travel for graduate candidates.
Funding for any fieldwork expenses required to complete the agreed course of research must be discussed and agreed to with the candidates’ supervisors when the Research Proposal is prepared. Provision for later applications to amend the project and apply to increase fieldwork/conference resources is subject to available funds.
All research candidates have reasonable access to computing and relevant software facilities; provision for stationery, postage and receipt of mail; access to printing and photocopying facilities and fax; and use of a telephone for internal and local calls.
