About Computer Networking Society

Welcome to the Computer Networking Society (or NetSoc for short)!

We're a bit WIP at the moment, but expect:
- Regular study sessions, for those studying Networking-adjacent courses and certifications. A2.NET (our networking lab full of (expensive) routers and switches) is “open access,” but these are guaranteed times where you know the room is free for your exclusive use. 
- Regular social events, for when you need to unwind after a hard day of typing `conf t` over and over.
- Fun competitions—including network buildings speedruns—with special guest judges
- Interesting talks from people in the industry, offering insights into a career in IT and Networking
- If we can manage, trips to interesting places (tbd)

For those not doing a Networking or Cyber Security course, we can offer access to the networking lab, allowing you to explore the fun equipment (well, at least we think it's fun). It is some of the coolest stuff in the Uni :)
