Who are we?

CompSoc is the University of Canterbury's Computer Society, dedicated to providing the UC community, a wide range of events and opportunities. CompSoc aims to offer students the full uni experience, with great events ranging from social BBQs to academic workshops, as well as enough industry opportunities to succeed university and beyond.

CompSoc is a club fostering an inclusive and diverse environment for anyone interested in the CSSE department, or even just keen on chilling with a variety of like-minded students. You can meet industry leaders from all over the world, or work on a problem with one of our mentors. If you would like to be part of such a innovative and evolving club then CompSoc is for you. CompSoc is all about enhancing your time at university, both socially and academically.

CompSoc has held a strong presence in the UC community since our beginnings in 2003, but our “written history” begins in late 2010 with six passionate computer science students. Since then, our club has grown steadily - the committee is now more than twice its original size! At the beginning of 2016, CompSoc rebranded to become the beautiful blue and orange masterpiece it is today. In 2017, and moving forward, we strive to expand the range and quality of our events and opportunities for all students.
