We are happy to announce that we have just been recognized as the BCS Student Chapter in Brunel University London. To mark the occasion, folks at BCS headquarters have sent us some friendly lollipops for our members:
Why become a BCS Student Chapter?
If you are a Computer Science student, you might remember going through the BCS Code of Conduct in your first year Data and Information module.
BCS, The British Computer Society is the Chartered Institute for IT. BCS sets standards and frameworks for the IT industry. They offer Continuing Professional Developments (CPD) and IT qualifications. It aims to foster links between experts from industry, academia, businesses and students. They will be a key supporter, partner and sponsor to our Society.
BCS and Brunel
Just this June, our adviser Dr. Lela Koulouri organised the BCS Appathon with volunteers from Brunel and UCL. It was a Guinness World Record attempt for the most number of people writing a mobile application at the same time.
The BCS Appathon was a free event suitable for anyone over the age of 10, using MIT AppInventor to design and code an Android App.
BCS in London
There are many other university student chapters around Greater London, such as Royal Holloway, University of Greenwich, University of Kent, London South Bank University, and Kingston University. Being a BCS Student Chapter expands our inter-university ties vastly.
Our members will have discounted prices for many BCS events as well. We are very close to the London West and London Central BCS Branches.
