SCS PhD Welcome Event 2022

Our second annual SCS PhD Welcome Event happened on September 27th. This event provided the incoming students with a sense of togetherness within the School of Computer Science community and will provide the existing students with an opportunity to take a break from work and mingle with other students. The event improved their mood and reduced stress levels and consequently will improved their mental health. In addition, we celebrated the 15th anniversary of the School of Computer Science.
