The School of Computing and Information Systems has made considerable changes to its unit offerings in 2014. Students are strongly encouraged to enrol as early as possible for 2014 so that we can confirm you are enrolling in the correct units to complete your degree. Some units on offer in 2014 will have quotas. Other units will not be offered unless enrolments reach a minimum level. So early enrolment is encouraged to assist with planning and timetabling.
To assist students enrolled in our undergraduate degrees: BComp, BIS and combined degrees we have prepared some enrolment advice forms. Each student should complete one of these forms and then discuss it (generally via email) with the degree coordinator. The forms are available on the following site:
For students that are interested in converting to the Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) there is a form available on the above site to calculate which of your completed units will count towards a BICT. Students interested in converting should email Nicole Herbert.
You do not have to wait for your 2013 results to enrol for 2014.
Nicole Herbert will conduct advice sessions next week to discuss your completed enrolment advice form:

Do you want to be part of an intense but fun challenge that will run you off your feet? Sign up NOW for the OzCHI 24-hour design challenge.
Run over 24 hours from 10AM this Saturday to 10AM Sunday, your team needs to design *something* based on a brief you'll receive at the start of the challenge.
This could be a website or iPhone app, but previous UTAS teams have come up with a crazy array of solutions to various problems ranging from wearable video cameras hidden in hats, intelligent speakers smuggled into trees and LED lights stuck to garbage bins. How you answer the design brief is entirely up to you!
The competition is THIS WEEKEND. UTAS have been finalists the last few years running. Let's get together another couple of strong teams this year! Go to:http://www.ozchi24.org
Typical team sizes are 3-5 people, but if you can't get a team together, email Matthew (email@example.com) and he'll try to fit you into one
The School of Computing and Information Systems has undertaken a significant revision of its degree offerings. A considerable degree and curricula development process based on the Australian Computer Society (ACS) recommended process was undertaken with information sought from stakeholders. A comprehensive study of what was available nationally and internationally was also undertaken, as well as a review of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) international curricula in all ICT related-fields and as well as a review of ACS curricula for accreditation. On the basis of all the information gathered, a new single undergraduate degree Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) and a new single postgraduate degree Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) have been developed and will be offered from 2014. The existing degrees will continue for teach-out purposes only.
As a result of the curricula renewal from 2014 we will be offering a whole range of new units and most of our existing units will be discontinued. Information about the new degrees and units can be found at: http://www.utas.edu.au/computing-information-systems/new-courses
Information sessions will be held throughout semester 2 to provide information on the changes and the impact on existing students. If you are going to continue your enrolment into 2014 we recommend you attend one of the following information sessions:
To address your immediate concerns: You will not be required to change your degree and there will be sufficient units available for you to complete your current degree and all the core content from existing units required for ACS membership will continue to be available.
If you forward your UTas email to an external email provider, there's a chance you will not receive important email from UTas.
This issue particularly affects email services provided by Microsoft (including hotmail, outlook.com, msn.com and live.com email addresses) and Apple (including mac.com, me.com and iCloud.com email addresses). These and many other email providers use a blacklisting service to block sites that are considered senders of spam, and unfortunately at times this can include UTas due to the volume of email we send.
Please reconsider carefully if you use email forwarding. It can take weeks for these services to lift any blacklisting they apply to UTas, and during this period you will not receive email that could be important in relation to your studies and your assessment.
