External Review Committee

External Review Committee

The External Review Committee (ERC) is tasked with evaluating and assessing the activities, processes and outputs of the CDT from an objective, external perspective. The committee provides feedback in an formal annual report following a review, which consists of private panel sessions with CDT students, supervisors and the CDT and School of Informatics leadership.

The feedback – a valuable assessment of the CDT’s progress and potential opportunities for growth – is reported to to the Executive Committee to determine the best way to incorporate the ERC’s recommendations.
