- NIU Department of Computer Science
Student ACM Chapter
The Student Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) serves as a focal point for information regarding the advantages of being associated with this organization of computer professionals. As in the past, the ACM will sponsor speakers from industry to talk on various computer-related topics.
Speakers from companies such as International Truck and Engine Corporation, IBM San Jose, Deere and Co., and Caterpillar, Inc. not only have described their particular “real world” of IT, but also have emphasized the importance of knowledge gained from NIU course material in their actual computer operations.
Other activities sponsored by the Student Chapter of the ACM include Homecoming receptions for Computer Science alumni, job search preparation workshops, and resume writing workshops, as well as workshops and seminars on other professional topics.
Look for the Student Chapter of the ACM’s fliers posted on campus bulletin boards for announcements of activities.
