COMPUTER SCIENCE SOCIETY
About the Society:
The Computer Science Society, a.k.a. CompSoc is a student-led society which aims to promote Tech Literacy. We are a bunch of geeks set out to make the ever-evolving world of Information Technology more enjoyable, and understandable for everyone. The society began in 1991 when a group of students from the College came together to share their love for technology with the world. It has been our agenda to profess that computing is beyond writing complex code.
We are dedicated to the promotion of the various facets of computing. We strive to promote gaming, technology, applications, programming, science, and fiction, inter alia. The society strives to extend beyond the conventional domains of computing through a series of multi-disciplinary events.
Most importantly, we wish to familiarize people with technology, to increase digital literacy through fun events, Talks, Workshops, Quizzes, Meme competitions, Orfik, CyberCept (Annual Fest). GameFace, Tech Hunt, blogs, journal, and Instagram posts.
We are a mélange of people brought together by a common idea: Tech is the future.
Vision and Mission:
The Computer Science Society is committed to promoting Tech Literacy to everyone. It wants to
make people aware of how they can use technology to simplify their work and solve real world problems. The Society also aims to solve commonly faced problems by leveraging technology. For this purpose, the society works on different projects and initiatives throughout the year.
