  • improve student experience by encouraging good practice across the Departments;
  • represent the School of Technology internally and externally on postgraduate matters;
  • improve administration of postgraduate education by sharing knowledge and best practice in admissions, feedback and monitoring of student and supervisor performance across the Departments of the School;
  • promote interdisciplinary activity and collaboration;
  • provide a platform for responding to and addressing emerging issues at University level, such as student surveys, as referred to by bodies such as the General Board and the Council of the School;
  • engage with a wide range of stakeholders, such as the Academic Division, in the coordination and management of postgraduate education across the University;
