Department of Computer Science and Technology


The Cambridge Ring is the graduate association of the Department of Computer Science and Technology. The Ring provides information, contacts, help-line services and a social and business events programme to members.

It was founded in 2002 as a not-for-profit independent members' association, to enable graduates to get a lifetime benefit from their Cambridge degrees, professionally, technically and socially.

The association's governing council designed a programme of events to allow members not only to re-discover and engage with the intellectual rigour associated with being a graduate of the University, but also to provide the opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new contacts within the computing industry.

In 2012, the department, adamant that the Ring is an important asset and should be helped to flourish, decided to bring the association in-house. So, in July 2012 the Cambridge Ring moved from constitutional and operational independence to being part of the department.
