Student societies


There are four societies affiliated closely with the Department:


KCL Tech Society

KCL Tech Society is run by and made for people who are passionate about tech entrepreneurship and building interesting products and companies. The society does many things from running events for students to learn how to develop Algorithms, iOS/Android apps to organising hackathons; two in London (HackKings and HackLondon) and one in Italy (HackCortona). They also connect students with industry through events with guest speakers from companies such as Google, General Assembly, Entrepreneur First and Avecto.

Like a challenge? Jump in, get your hands dirty, and learn how to build whatever you want. Assemble your own maze-solving robot. Prefer to relax? Design a robot to water your plants for you. Enjoy a laugh? 3D print a robo-roach to scare your flatmates. Space, tools, equipment; hands-on workshops for all skill levels; talks by experts on hot topics; and the chance to make some like-minded friends.
