Student Chapters Enhance Learning and Career Development:-
ACM has established more than 680 student chapters throughout the world that give students opportunities to play active roles in the association and its activities. By organizing technical talks, workshops, field trips and programming contests, ACM Student Chapters facilitate communication and collaboration within a university’s computer science community and with the computing community at large. Through its sponsorship of student chapters, ACM also enhances learning via the exchange of ideas among students, and between students and established professionals.
Student chapter members can also take advantage of ACM activities and services. Opportunities include the Distinguished Speakers Program, the International Collegiate Programming Contest, and the Student Research Competition. Student chapters provide a natural setting to develop and demonstrate the leadership capabilities critical to students’ career development. They also help students get involved in the business world with workshops, resume assistance, and career building initiatives.
