Who is the Computer Science Society?

The Computer Science Society, also known as the CSS, is a group of enthusiastic individuals who are immersed in the exciting world of Computer Science and Information Technology (CSIT). Each member of the CSS has an aspect of CSIT that is the source of their thirst for constant knowledge. In addition, we advocate our members’ personal growth via encouraging the exploration of new topics and experiences related to CSIT. We connect with CSIT professionals and experts to provide a stepping stone towards the professional and personal advancement of our members.
Each one of us is different, albeit being driven by a common cause. We may differ in race, culture, gender, religion, personalities and so much more but an important fact remains; we are a family brought together by the love for technology that flows through our veins.

What do we do?

The CSS does a variety of activities that assist in the development of our members. These activities are as follows:

  • Sustaining an environment that allows the building of strong networks between each of our members.
  • Sustaining an environment that allows the building of strong networks with professionals in the field of information technology.
  • Participating in real world projects.
  • Participating in hands-on activities that provide practical experience in hard skills such as networking and web development.
  • Participating in activities that provide practical experience in soft skills such as proper communication and time management.

Why was the CSS formed?

The CSS was formed at the University of the West Indies at Cave Hill in Barbados to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and the practical experience that is a vital requirement in the workplace. In addition, we aim to guide our members towards useful tools as well as to expose our members to the best opportunities possible. We understand that not everything can be learned in a classroom lecture.

Where and when does the CSS meet?

We meet every Friday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Computer Science Lab 1 (CSL1) at the University of the West Indies at Cave Hill, located on the first floor of the Leslie Robinson Building.
