CompSoc is the University of Canterbury's Computer Society, providing opportunities for CSSE students and computer enthusiasts to make new friends, get involved with the department, meet industry leaders and have fun!
Our goal is to further students academically, socially, and professionally. Have a great time at our social BBQs, get help with your course at our help sessions, meet key people at industry functions, and learn something new at our Tech Talks.
We welcome everyone and, lets be honest, we are the people you want to know when your computer fries itself the day that assignment is due. Check out our stall on clubs day, or visit our website for more info.

Dota 2 LAN Tournaments: E-Sports is a growing phenomenon, and we’re getting on board with one of the biggest Dota 2 Tournaments in the South Island with over 130 attendees and 80 contestants.
Industry Talks: A wide variety of speakers from the real world! Not only are they often on the hunt for recruitment, but they offer great presentations with solid advice and opportunities.
Tech Seminars and Workshops: Learn new skills to add to that CV of yours with our seminars and workshops, which every now and then are held by some big name companies, such as Google or Microsoft.
Academic Help Sessions: Struggle no more with your assignments and quizzes by coming along to our free weekly tutorials where you can work on your own, or with a buddy, and ask for help from one of our tutors. Rumor has it, we also provide pizza every so often...
