Our Chapter

Here at NC A & T, our number one goal is to ensure that all of our members are well equipped for the workforce upon receiving their respective degrees. We do so by hosting weekly meetings, tutoring sessions, and countless chapter events such as hack-a-thons and interview workshops. From developing fully responsive websites to creating the next big startup company, there is truly never a dull moment in this chapter.

If you are interested in joining, we meet every other Tuesday at 7:00 PM in Graham Hall. For more information, contact us today!

Special Interest Groups

ACM’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent the major areas of the dynamic computing field. A primary source of original research and personal perspectives from the world's leading thinkers in computing and information technology, they foster technical communities within their respective specialties across countries and continents.

ACM’s SIGs are invested in advancing the skills of their members, keeping them abreast of emerging trends. They offer opportunities for networking with colleagues, staying connected to peers and negotiating the strategic challenges of the digital age.

This year, we want to see what SIGs interest our members most. Check out the full list of SIGs to see where you may fit in then email us to let us know which one it is.
