Help!

This is where to find help resolving various issues while within the dept of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE). The idea is you start with the FAQs and if you don't find a solution there you work your way down the list to an issue that requires action by the Facilities Committee.

Online Help

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions.
This is the starting point and will hopefully answer the common questions you may have.

Online Help - A useful collection of documents providing assistance on various topics related to the Computer Science and Software Engineering department.

Course Tutor

Your course tutor is the first person to ask if you have any problems understanding and working on your lab work and assignments. If no tutor is available then see your lecturer.

Lab Supervisor

Visit the lab supervisor in (room 220 for help with course handouts, the booking system, login problems, and equipment problems such as broken terminals or printers. You may also contact the lab supervisor on Ext. 8251 during normal work hours (09:00--17:00 hrs).

Duty Programmer

If the course tutor or the lab supervisor can not help you with your problem they will refer you to the duty programmer.

A programmer task may also be entered into the Task Allocation System (TAS). When using TAS, please remember to provide as much relevant information as possible, including but not limited to, your name and contact details at the university, the software and/or hardware (include your computer base number) for which assistance is required.
