Computers were introduced to the library for the first time in 1975, but the two machines had been dropped at the airport and were also hit by lightning in 1976 and so, unsurprisingly, were not much of an asset.

The only tangible benefit which the Club as a whole received was the Ethernet connection to UWA-Net via the lounge. This was later replaced with an underground line to University Computing Services, and a connection to the new Guild Buildings. In this way the UCC were able to connect to the Internet.

Simon Fryers, a member since 1995, wrote 'I don't seem to remember many of the UCC social activities.' Simone Collins, who joined the Club in 1997, wrote 'Pizza nights are fun. Other social activities haven't really happened much though. Most of them have degenerated into computer games nights where people bring their own PC.. quite dull as it limits interaction with others.'

Phil Sutherland to Emma Hawkes, 26/3/1999.

In 1985 a new subject, Computer Technology 105, was introduced in Engineering. This new subject was seen as a way of adapting the Engineering course to the changing technologies of the late-twentieth century. 'In speaking to the proposal the Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering emphasised the reasons for the proposal. A substantial change in the needs for the education of Electronic and Electrical engineers in today's environment was becoming more and more evident and the Department had an obligation to adapt to this changing environment.' 12/10/1983, University of Western Australia, Faculty of Engineering Minutes, 1981.
