The Computing and Security Student Association is an organisation that was formed by the students, for the students. This staff and student body is dedicated to representing all undergraduate and postgraduate degree students that are studying in SCSS and any other school at Edith Cowan University. We represent a voice for the students to present their views, projects, ideas, and criticisms about SCSS to people who will listen and do something about it. The incentives to join CASSA are numerous. One such benefit comes from belonging to a body of students with the same interests and ideas and the sense of belonging that comes with being part of such a group. Interaction between students in CASSA is high, both socially and intellectually.
As a member of CASSA, you will have the opportunity to attend professional evenings that are designed to connect you to potential employers, researchers and students of other tertiary and post secondary colleges. We also organise sporting, cultural and entertainment events and activities for SCSS students and staff throughout the year to make studying in SCSS at Edith Cowan University a more enjoyable experience. We aim to work together to help unite SCSS students and bridge the gap between undergraduates and postgraduates, and students and staff alike. What does CASSA do?
