Welcome to the CSEE Society!
The Definitive Place for all Essex CSEE Students
New Society of the Year 2022 Winner!
The Computer Science and Electronic Engineering Society (CSEE Society) aims to provide a central hub for all CSEE students to talk and socialise, from discussing current technology to bantering about CSEE related topics. We were formed as a result of lockdown and wanting to be able to talk to other students when we couldn't see each other face to face, so we're social focused. We are the definitive place for all CSEE Students to communicate, featuring over 800 members from across all year groups in the Discord, and over over 175 registered Society members in the academic year 2022-2023.
As well as this, we have created a place for peer-to-peer sharing and teaching - we've seen that learning from peers has been very beneficial to people's grades, and overall understanding of the world of CSEE outside the university context too. So, if you're someone who wants to know more about CSEE, or think you have knowledge that you can impart to others - this is the place for you!
Throughout the first two terms, we aim to hold games nights once a week, on the weekends, and semiregular in-person socials, to encourage CSEE students to go outside a bit more (we know you like your comfy chairs, but it's good to get fresh air). You can check our events page here, or the tab on Discord for more up-to-date information on these. During these terms, we also hold revision sessions for progress tests, or exams, to help people achieve those higher grades, and during the 2021-22 Christmas break we held our first 48 hour Hackathon, where multiple teams competed to produce the best game within those 48 hours.
During the final term, we kick it up a gear and host a whole ton of study sessions for exams, known as 'Revision Session Season' - we try and host at least one revision session for each exam taking place that year, where we go through difficult topics, past papers, or anything that people want to cover before the exams.
All of these events are Society Member only, so be sure to get your FREE membership to gain access to these.
Membership is completely free - you get access to all events we hold, which include in-person socials, online game nights, our set of summer challenges, and most importantly, our 'Revision Session Season' series of revisions sessions during exam time.
