We connect top students with innovative brands.

Students can be a difficult demographic to advertise to, and that’s where CSS comes in. As a student-run society, we are uniquely poised to advertise your company’s internships and graduate schemes to our membership of nearly a thousand students from one of the world’s top 50 universities (QS World University Rankings 2020).

Why CSS?

All computer science students at the University of Bristol are members of CSS. This gives us over 600 undergraduates, 250 postgraduates, and a large network of alumni in our 2600+ member Facebook group.

Sponsorship is an effective way to promote your brand and attract top talent—we ensure you are visible to students throughout the year. Many of our students go on to intern and work at companies that sponsor us.

Give a tech-talk

You send the presenter, we organise venue, tech setup, and advertising. We usually expect an audience of around 30 to 50 people (variable depending on the availability and interest of students). Past talks have covered topics such as high-performance computing, JVM internals, formal hardware verification and banking security.

Run an event

Custom Event

Running a custom event is the perfect opportunity to show students interesting technical problems you work on, what it’s like to work at your company, and what you’re looking for in new engineers.

We help our partners run social events and programming contests, such as game jams, data science challenges, capture the flags, and more. These are popular and attract 50 to 100 students.

Existing Events

We run a number of recurring events which are popular with students. Sponsors of these events will be involved in planning, prominently featured in all advertising, and have access to students for the duration of the event:

Autumn Event (November 2021):

The key event of our first term - e.g, a hack-night, game-jam or competition.

24 Hour Hackathon (February 2022):

The biggest event of of our calendar, a large-scale hackathon.

Outreach

We are committed to making computer science at university more accessible and work in collaboration with the University to host outreach events such as insight days, summer camps, tutorials for sixth formers and school visits.

We are eager to hold more outreach events over the next year and would love your support. If you're interested in working with us on our outreach programme, please get in touch with us by emailing [email protected].
