Fall 2015 - Our New Website Is Under Construction
Welcome to official website of the Association for Computing Machinery at the University of Utah (ACM@UofU). Soon you’ll be able to come here for chapter resources and news, and to network with ACM members. While not required for participation in our events, we recommend signing up for email updates so you can keep up with what’s happening in ACM, and with other computing events and opportunities happening on campus.
Our ACM chapter is just getting started, but with your help we hope to see it become one of the best networking and career resources for computing students at the U. If you’d like to get more involved, we’re looking for volunteers who can help us plan and carry out events for this and future semesters. Becoming a volunteer with ACM puts you in direct contact with many of the faculty in the CS department as well as CE, ECE, and EAE. It also allows you network with people in industry at places like Goldman Sachs, Adobe, and Microsoft. Even if you’re a new student you can make valuable contributions, and the connections you make now with other students, faculty, and industry professionals will prove invaluable to you in your academic and professional career. If you’d like to participate, send us an email at . Our meetings are also open for anyone to come to, and times for our meetings will be posted here in the coming weeks.
We look forward to seeing you!

More About ACM
The Association for Computing Machinery is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, and aims to advance computing worldwide as a science and a profession. In addition to being an academic resource for professionals and researchers, ACM also hosts student chapters in universities around the world that are made up of students from all majors associated with computing. For this reason, students from any computing-related major—including CS, CE, ECE, EAE, IS, and others—are welcome to join ACM, and are a vital part of diversifying the U of U chapter. Your voice is important, and we want your help in making ACM a better resource for students in your major.
Our chapter has existed at the University of Utah for several years, however it’s only recently been reorganized in its current format. With that, we’ve established the following chapter goals:
- Network members with the technology industry by hosting and sponsoring events that will allow them to interact with professionals in the field, and will allow them to explore rewarding areas of technology that they can establish a career in.
- Engage members in activities that will help them sharpen valuable technical and communication skills, including tech intros and demos, programming competitions, discussion panels, and study groups.
- Connect members with other students, allowing them to establish broader networks that they can lean on for friendship and support, and collaborate with on projects both in and outside of classes.
If any of these interest you, then feel free to join us for any of our upcoming events, sign up for email updates, or come for one of our meetings (times to be posted here soon). Bring a friend along too if you’d like.
