Box 123, Broadway, ABSTRACT The Federal Government of Australia has recently introduced two policies that have had a profound effect on the tertiary education of IT.

Secondly, the Higher Education Council has recommended the introduction of quality management into the tertiary education sector. This paper reports the experiences of the School of Computing Sciences at the University of Technology, Sydney in responding to these two initiatives.
