About Us

As the only generalist IT club at Murdoch University, the Murdoch IT Society is comprised of students from a wide range of subdisciplines within the field of technology. We pride ourselves in offering an academic environment for such diverse, yet like-minded individuals to share, collaborate, and assist each other in our personal projects and studies. At present, this environment is largely delivered through the utilisation of a Discord server – though we are working hard to shape MITS into a dynamic and welcoming on-campus presence. This expansion is being achieved through the hosting of events such as:

  • Game Jams
  • Hackathons
  • Quiz Nights
  • Meetups
  • Keynote Presentations
  • And many more exciting events to come!

During the growth of our community, our Discord server has developed an atmosphere that provides a supportive, fun, and vibrant location to engage with your fellow students at Murdoch. We are in full support of what our community has achieved, and are encouraging the development of our Discord culture through the creation of MITS-themed stickers – which are available for purchase on this website’s storefront.

Meet the Committee

Our Committee members keep MITS ticking, responsible for community management, event organisation and idea realisation:

The Executive Committee members are the leaders of MITS who help us achieve our objectives. They fulfill roles defined in our constitution and are privy to the majority of MITS’ HR tasks.

The Executive Committee is supported by members of a subcommittee who provide input on club decisions and act as representatives for each of the University year groups, graduates, and the IT industry as a whole.

Rachael Stevenson

Vice President

I am a second year Cyber Sec/Internetworking student with a passion for all things IoT. I believe team work makes the dream work and we’d be lost without the help of our dedicated committee. 

Jean Iwanyk


I am a Cyber Security and Internetworking graduate who is currently undertaking Doctoral studies in transformative education practices through the use of IT as a pillar for student engagement within Western Australian classrooms. Outside of technologies, I enjoy trying to write my second thesis, a cook book!
