FIT Tech Squads

Tech Squads are open to all FIT postgraduate students and provide a place for students to network, participate in social activities, compete in inter squad competitions and have some fun with their peers! Tech Squads are designed to help new students transition into university life and give current students the opportunity to participate and develop their leadership skills in a faculty-run program.

Squad Seniors are current postgraduate students in the Faculty of Information Technology. You’ll help ensure that all students have the support they need as well as play a critical part in fostering a positive and engaged student community committed to social and cultural inclusion.

As a Squad Senior you get access to:

  • personal and professional networking opportunities
  • knowledge, skills and career development sessions
  • networking opportunities
  • forums and events
  • mentoring
  • regular communication about initiatives both at the university and externally run

  • Be enrolled as a current postgraduate student in an Information Technology course for Semester 2, 2021 (part-time or full-time study load)
  • Be in your second semester of study or above
  • Be able to commit to supporting up to 10 commencing students through personal interactions
  • Be able to commit at least 10 hours volunteering throughout the program

Start your postgraduate degree as part of the Monash IT community. You'll be placed in a Tech Squad with other new students, where you'll be able to network, participate in social activities, and compete in inter squad competitions!

As a mentee, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive support and encouragement from your mentor (Squad Senior) and student group
