Cambridge University Computing and Technology Society

About our events

Our main events are a series of talks held by invited speakers on a relevant area of their expertise, which are FREE to all members of the university. Our speakers have included leading academics in their fields, as well as highly successful entrepreneurs representing technological companies.

Talks are normally on Tuesdays from 8pm until 9pm (although talks are not necessarily weekly; see below). We normally head to the pub after talks!

You can also access our events calendar in iCal format

We also organise the annual CUCaTS Puzzlehunt!
