Edinburgh University Programming Society

The Edinburgh University Programming Society (EUPS) was founded in 2015 by two economics students who wanted to learn more about the technologies that drive the world today. With the help of two students in computer science, they provided a platform for students from all backgrounds to collaborate and improve their technical skills together. Today, EUPS continues its mission by holding weekly programming lessons, mainly in Python. We do our best to make sure that these lessons are useful to our members, whether they just want to learn a new skill, or are preparing for a career in technology. 


Aside from our lessons, members can expect to participate in technical workshops on specialised topics like machine learning and computer simulation. We also hold socials to get to know each other better, so please come along to those as well! Finally, early in the second semester of the academic year, we hold our annual beginner-friendly hackathon with our partner society Edinburgh University Women in STEM (EUWiSTEM). This is our biggest event of the year and we highly encourage our members to sign up for it :)


Whether you're a student or not, if you're interested in learning how to code we'd love to hear from you! Sign up to our mailing list, and don't hesitate to shoot us an email or visit our website if you want more information!
