The Computing Society focuses on improving its members’ skills and aiding their interests by supplementing their degree programs with talks from professionals in the industry, working in improving their skills in workshops and tutorials and making friendships and connections that will last long after they’ve finished their degrees.
The Society aims to make computing interesting and fascinating to everyone, achieving this by encouraging people to program and providing volunteer-backed classes. This also helps provide members with opportunities to work in their local community and on campus. As part of its mission, the Society keeps it members up to date on the latest computing technologies, promoting active discussions in topics - from basic Java to advanced Information Security.
The Computing Society aims to create a network of enthusiasts, students, academics, and professionals in the field of computing. We set to achieve this goal by encouraging open source collaboration through publications and sharing sessions, participating in regional and international conferences, and competitions and creating opportunities for enthusiasts to meet like-minded people.
We host an array of different socials ranging from gaming nights to treasure hunts. Computing Society prides themselves on throwing themselves into the campus community, collaborating with other societies across the Students Union.
The society aims to build upon academic teaching with guest lectures and workshops. Trips to competitions and hackathons also encourage the practical application and constant improvement for skills learned.
