ACM student club
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) student club at EMU is an informal gathering for students who are interesting in computers, coding, or programming. The club meets once a month for lunch during which time a guest speaker presents on a topic of interest.
Past topics include:
- A discussion on Alan Turing and his contributions to the field of computing and mathematics
- A presentation by Bob Haskins from the telecommunication company Shentel
- A discussion on the current state of different areas of computer science including drones, houses and cars
Working groups are student-led groups based around a common interest or theme.
Current working groups include:
- Programming competitions
- Cell phone app design
- Outreach – recently hosted a One Hour of Code event
