Events

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 "highlight" events we've had and have planned for 2021/22. 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 as well as our Discord.
