The Glasgow University Tech Society (GUTS) is the official student society for the School of Computing Science and aims to provide students with opportunities to socialise, develop their technical ability and connect with our industrial partners. From hackathons and workshops to pub crawls and black tie galas, the society is there for all students.
Our annual hackathon - Do You Have The GUTS? - is one of the largest hackathons in the UK, attracting students of all abilities from all corners of the country to compete in challenges set by our wide range of sponsors.
So whether you’re a tech enthusiast or someone with just a tiny bit (or byte) of interest, you are very welcome to join our events - it’s not all ones and zeroes! There’s no membership fee and no requirement for School of Computing Science students to apply for membership. Be sure to like our Instagram, Facebook and join our Discord to stay up-to-date with us.
