Association for Computing Machinery


The School of Engineering, Mathematics, and Science (SEMS) has an active student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). A bi-weekly meeting is held on Monday at 5:00 PM in John Jay 329, the SEMS Student Activities Office (above the gym).

ACM is the world's oldest and largest educational and scientific computing society. Since 1947 ACM has provided a vital forum for the exchange of information, ideas, and discoveries. Today, ACM serves a membership of computing professionals and students in more than 100 countries in all areas of industry, academia, and government.

ACM delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. ACM provides the computing field's premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources. The student chapter is involved in community service, assisting organizations with PC services and hardware through the Computing Machinery Community Outreach program and volunteering with the Future City Pittsburgh event. We participate yearly in the Carnegie Mellon Invitational Programming Contest and have begun work on the Elevator Challenge.

The student chapter proudly serves the RMU engineering and IS student body by providing several important academic and professional services. The Internship Assistance Program was started to provide accurate listings of local internships at reputable companies. The Academic Mentoring Program is designed to help underclassmen understand the merits, needs, and value of various course offerings and elective choices.

The National and Local chapters have a variety of resources at the disposal of their members, from online courses and books to professional publications and journals. The ACM hosts a job search similar to MonsterTRAK specific to computing professions.
