CIVSOC is Swansea University’s brand new Civil Engineering Society. CIVSOC aims to enhance students’ university experience, CPD, networking opportunities and broaden their understanding outside of the curriculum. The society particularly wants to encourage students from different years to interact, take care of freshers and help them settle in, and create a strong network between Civil Engineering alumni, lecturers and the ICE (Institute of Civil Engineers).
Our CIVSocialites enjoy a variety of networking opportunities such as talks and site visits held in partnership with the ICE and SEA (Swansea Employability Award Team) as well as awesome social gatherings. Socials range from ‘themed nights’ around the town to ‘dry socials’ at venues such as limitless trampoline park, TenPin Bowling and much more.
The main aspects are to encourage a work hard, play hard healthy lifestyle, integrate students from across the college, improve students’ employability skills and open doors to new opportunities.
Talks between the engineering societies have involved possible plans for sports days, an engineering summer ball and various events throughout the year, but for these to be possible, we need your support.
It’s an exciting time to become a member of a society on Swansea University’s Bay Campus so here’s what you have to do if you are a current Civil Engineer at Swansea
