Information for ACSE First Year Undergraduates

Dr Tara BaldacchinoWelcome to your first year in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering (ACSE) at the University of Sheffield.  You have done really well to get here, and the staff and other students in the department are very pleased to have you join us.  

In these web pages, I would like to help you to 
•    find out about your course,
•    find out what is expected of you and
•    learn more about the Department.

Before the academic year starts, all new students will have Intro Week, starting on the 17th of September 2018.  In Intro Week you will register, you will meet the staff and other students in ACSE, and you will start to get used to University life.  It is important to participate in Intro Week sessions, so you will be ready to start classes on the 24th of September 2018. 

After Intro Week, you will meet your personal tutor.  Your personal tutor will be an important point of contact if you have a personal problem that affects your academic work.  If your personal tutor is not available and your problem is urgent, please ask for advice in ACSE Reception or email  You can also see me, as the academic student support officer.  If you have a problem with a module, rather than a personal problem, please talk to the module lecturer.
