CSESoc is the principal representative body for computing students on  campus. We are one of the biggest and most active societies at UNSW,  catering to over 3500 CSE students spanning across degrees in Computer  Science, Software Engineering, Bioinformatics and Computer Engineering.  We are here to fulfil the needs of computing students and also promote  computing in all its forms through weekly social and technical events  throughout the year.

We are a society for the students, by the students. As a CSE student, here's how we can help you:

  • We organise and run weekly events, including Trivia, Movie, Poker,  and Boardgame Nights, LAN Parties, Workshops, Code Jams, Tech Talks, and  our famous Free Weekly BBQ.
  • We run a highly successful First Year Camp, offering new CSE  students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) a weekend of Trivia,  Dance Parties, Scavenger Hunts and general frivolity with the chance to  meet and mingle with other newcomers.
  • The society is entirely run by CSE student volunteers. All CSE  Students are automatically members, and there are plenty of  opportunities to get involved with running events and activities.
  • We cater to new and returning students alike, with a mix of events  designed to have something for everyone. Events are open to all members  and nearly all are free to attend.
  • We're as passionate about computing as you are; we provide technical  events to teach you new skills, as well as a fortnightly magazine to  keep you updated on what's new and interesting within the university,  school and industry.

Most of all, we're here to help you settle in and have a great time at UNSW!
