Association for Computing Machinery
Your membership in Northwestern’s student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) will look good on your resume and connect you with computer scientists already working in the field. More immediately, it’s an opportunity to socialize, learn and serve with your computer science peers and professors.
Members are eligible to compete in ACM’s programming contests. In 2009 and 2010, Northwestern’s team was among the top 100 in the world. They competed in Stockholm, Sweden (2009), and Harbin, China (2010), alongside teams from MIT, Stanford, Oxford and Moscow State University.
