Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

Mission Statement

To establish a collaborative environment for students who are interested in technology and computing as well as raise awareness about the career opportunities and impact caused by pursuing computer science.

Organizational Goals

We seek to engage interested students through regular meetings, lightning talks, and workshops.  Student involved will be able to learn about a variety of topics in computer science and technology and participate in projects.  The ACM is currently working on revamping our High Performance Computing lab, where students will learn about setting up LDAP, NFS, and a firewall for a cluster of computers.  The website allows students to work on a team pursuing web development.
