What do we do?

The Society does everything from charity events to teaching! We like to create events around the following areas:

Play
University life can be tough and that’s why it’s important you have the opportunity to blow off steam. From regular meet ups in men’s bar to bar crawls to paintballing there will be plenty of opportunity to relax and let your hair down.
Learn
An equally big part of NUCATS, is learning. It is great if you already have computing or technology skills to share but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn something new. We offer the opportunity with programmes such as beginner python sessions to learn new programming languages right from scratch.
Educate
A big part of NUCATS, is educating people on the latest technologies and how to get the most out of them. We give members the opportunity to share their skills through schemes such as code club but also actively encourage members to share their knowledge through our forums.

Past Events

We have done dozens of events in the small period we have been a society! Here is just a taster of some of the events.
