Undergraduate Engineering Computer Accounts - 2017 Year End Notice

22nd May 2017

This notice concerns arrangements for Undergraduate Engineering Department Computer Accounts at the end of the Academic Year. The first section details the arrangements for those who are finishing their course and second for those who are not.

Undergraduate students finishing their course

The Engineering Department accounts of:

are scheduled to be closed on Monday 24 July 2017. The accounts of MET2 students are due for closure Tuesday 29 August 2017. It would be helpful if those Part IIA and MET1 students who do not intend returning in October would inform user-admin as soon as possible.

If a departing student wishes to pass online material to others, or a staff member wishes to obtain project material from a student, then arrangements should be made to do this before the account is closed. If assistance is needed and the material is on the main departmental teaching system please contact the IT helpdesk, either in person or via email to helpdesk . For assistance transferring material on a divisional research system please contact the appropriate divisional IT staff.

Any undergraduate coming to the end of their course but who expects to stay on in the department in any capacity beyond the dates above should contact user-admin as soon as possible, preferably before the end of term, providing the following information:

Note that this needs to be done in addition to any correspondence with the University Information Services or with student or staff offices in the department. Accounts will be converted to reflect the new role during the summer vacation, and those returning will need to re-register for their new role when they return.

Continuing undergraduates

All other undergraduate accounts will be left open over the summer. However, any undergraduate account which appears to be being misused may be disabled without warning. Any student who does not expect to access their email over the summer should unsubscribe from any busy mailing lists so that their mail box does not fill up: the department may send important emails about course arrangements at the start of next academic year.
