Student Society

Goals of the Student Society

The "Student Society Computer Science" is part of a network of student societies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Within the student society interested students shall be given the opportunity to develop their creativity and their individual skills. In doing so, computer science talents shall be encouraged - earlier and more professional than this is typically possible in school lessons.

the Student Society Computer Science will be conducted as project and will take place with alternating topics in Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter for approximately 10 weeks.
