Each year, a select group of CICS juniors and seniors are invited to be ACE Peer Advisors to help fellow undergraduate computer science students register for classes and advise them on which courses to take to meet graduation requirements. This paid position is an excellent leadership opportunity and a great way to connect with the CICS community.
The UMass Amherst chapter of the Association for Computer Machinery is the local student chapter of ACM, the computing professional society. The group is dedicated to engaging students in computing, helping them to build professional connections, and having fun! They hold events throughout the academic year, including tech talks, programming competitions, and social events.
The CS Women's Group serves and supports the women of the College of Information and Computer Sciences and promotes the representation and interests of women in computing. The group's focus is on community building -- members work closely with CICS faculty and staff to provide programs and services for female-identified students and organize social events, lectures, and other professional activities that are open to all students in the college.
Hackers of UMass is a student club for hackers, builders, makers, and innovators of UMass Amherst. Join them for tutorials, tech talks, hackathons, refreshments, and more!
Sponsored by CICS, UMass Amherst's annual 36-hour hackathon, HackUMass, is organized and run completely by students. Students from across campus come together to put on one of New England's largest events for makers -- in 2016 over 600 hackers from the region participated. Be on the lookout for ways you can get involved.
CICS ROCks! Rising junior and senior computer science majors are invited to apply to be CICS student ambassadors as part of the student Recruitment and Outreach Committee (ROCk). ROCks students give guided tours to prospective computer science students and other visitors, assist with annual fund activities, and represent the college at select UMass Amherst events.
