ACM fosters growth in the computing community through its more than 180 professional and more than 680 student chapters worldwide. Chapters establish a local presence for ACM in international cities from New York to Beijing, as well as in more remote locations such as Cyprus, Kenya, and Sri Lanka. Regardless of size or location, every ACM chapter offers members a wealth of benefits, including access to critical research and the opportunity to establish a personal networking system in the region.
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.
