ECSS runs numerous social events throughout the year for its members. These range from industry events with top employers to nightlife events (alcohol is not mandatory!) to board game evenings.

The timeline below shows some of our top events we have planned for 2018/19. We will also be running smaller events so that there will be at least one event per week. You can check what events are on at our Facebook page.

Welcome freshers! This is an evening dedicated to introducing you to the department and the society. Hosted in the department and at the Hobbit.
