Welcome to the Faculty of Science and Engineering Intranet





February 2017


Changes to Human Ethics applications for Science and Engineering:

As Research Master is due to be replaced by PURE this year, the RMENet online ethics application system will no longer be supported by the University. Eventually RMENet will be taken offline altogether. PLEASE SUBMIT NEW Human Ethics applications using the Macquarie University Human Ethics Application Form instead of RMENet from February 2017. All ethics applications should be submitted to in pdf format and in a single document, where practical. Please see the FSE Ethics information page for details on the low-risk ethics application process.
