New Student Committee for ECS Society

Published: 7 May 2009

The new Committee for the Electronics and Computer Science Society is bigger than ever, with new plans for future events.

The Electronics and Computer Science Society (ECSS) is supported by the School and is affiliated with the University Students' Union. It is sponsored by IBM. It exists to provide a range of events for students in the School, all of whom are members of the Society. A new Committee was voted in last week, and is already planning activities for next year. The Society organizes social events, academic and careers talks, sports and gaming events, and hosts events during JumpStart, the ECS Induction Week for Freshers.

The new Committee are: (l-r) Gamesmaster - Oliver Lea; Sports Representative - Raluca Alina Laic; Vice-President & Social Secretary - Connie Blacklock; Treasurer & Welfare Officer - Antony Johnston; President - Darius Aliabadi; Publicity Officer - Ash Browning; Academic Secretary - Oliver Bills; Secretary & Marketing Officer - Anna Asanowicz; Sport Representative - Oliver Parson; Webmaster - Steven Hatton-Pocklington.

The new President, Darius Aliabadi said: 'I plan to help build and maintain an ECSS community that everyone can feel comfortable to get involved with!'

New Social Secretary Connie Blacklock said that one of her aims is to get students from all the courses in the School together, and she is planning a number of socials with that in mind.

There are still events being planned for this year, including the annual 6-a-side Football Tournament. Find out more on the Society web pages.
