CSESoc was formed in October 2006 from the old CompSoc and SESoc societies. CompSoc helped represent the interest of students studying Computer Engineering, Computer Science and postgraduate courses, while SESoc was the representative body for Software Engineering students. Both societies provided technical and social support to their members. In the best interest of everyone, the societies merged to provide a better experience to all CSE students.
CSESoc now represents students enrolled in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Bioinformatics Engineering, or a post‐graduate program administered by CSE (research or coursework).
Even today CSESoc continues to be an integral part of the student experience. Many students make the most of their time at university by joining a working group in first year to get a taste of the society. If you are enthusiastic and interested you can nominate yourself or be nominated for a position in the Exec at the end of the year.
Being part of a society is a great way to meet new people and gain extra skills that employers look for in the industry.
