We’re the University of Canterbury Computer Society, and we can’t wait for you to join us.

One of the biggest and most active societies on campus, CompSoc is proud to have been the principal representative body of tech students studying a highly diverse range of programmes at UC since 2004.

Whether you are doing Computer Science, Software Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Data Science or Information Technology, we are here to facilitate you to engage with your departments and colleges, bolster your careers skills, network with our industry partners, and enjoy our range of social events.

What makes us truly special is our range of events.

Our goal is to help our members grow academically, socially and professionally with our wide range of events throughout the year.

From relaxing at an End-of-Term BBQ, discovering a new interest at our Raspberry Pi workshop, to an industry talk with one of our NZ and Australian sponsors, there is always something for everyone.

Thanks to our generous industry sponsors for making it happen.

Become our sponsor

Sponsorship is a win-win where our members have access to opportunities, and our sponsors have access to some of New Zealand’s best computing graduates.
