Student Organizations

Your opportunity to get involved at Miami is limited only by your time and desire! Computer Science and Software Engineering majors are involved with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Association for Computing Machinery Women (ACM-W), Kode2Learn, Girls Who Code, and the Student Advisory Council as well as many other non-major organizations.

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

A national, professional, computer science organization. Faculty and students meet monthly to hear industry speakers discuss the latest issues in the world of systems analysis. The group is also responsible for the department's annual high school programming contest held each spring. Microsoft is a sponsor of the contest and donates prizes for winners and participants.

The department has it's own Programming Team that participates in the ACM East Central Collegiate Programming Contest. Approximately 100 teams attend this contest. Please contact Dr. Michael Zmuda

Association for Computing Machinery-Women

The ACM-W is the ACM committee on Women in Computing. Miami has its own student chapter of the ACM-W to celebrate, inform and support our women in computing. For more information on our chapter, contact Dr. Valerie Cross.

Kode2Learn

Our goal is to organize and run events for kids in the Oxford area that promote teamwork and problem solving through the use of computer programming. No computer science knowledge is needed; we are open to all majors. Advisor: Norm Krumpe.

Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code is a student organization where Miami volunteers teach 5th - 12th grade girls and boys about computer science, while emphasizing the importance of a community that supports women in technology. Our focus is primarily on web development, but also introduce more advanced topics such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence. Our goal is to close the gender gap in technology by inspiring, educating, and equipping our students with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. Advisor: Dr. Daniela Inclezan.

Student Advisory Council

The Student Advisory Council consists of students that meet on a regular basis with the head of our department. This group provides advice and leadership when it comes to hiring new professors, forming student organizations such as B1TS, and sponsoring social events for our students, such as Paintball and game nights.
