Clubs and Organizations
ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) is a national organization open to persons interested in the field of Computer Science. MTSU has an active student chapter which any student is eligible to join. Applications to join may be obtained in the Computer Science office, KOM 306. The chapter generally meets at least once a month and regularly schedules guest speakers and field trips to sites of modern computer applications. ACM at MTSU is a service organization and provides supplies to Computer Science students at a minimal cost. All Computer Science majors are encouraged to join ACM and participate in its many activities. Being a member of ACM will provide many benefits as mentioned above, will provide resume material and will allow students to participate in social activities with other Computer Science students and faculty.
CSC (Computer Science Connections) Founded in Fall 2017, Computer Science Connections is an organization dedicated to the following goals:
- Creating a rapport among students and between students and faculty in the MTSU Computer Science Department.
- Teaching and acquiring new skills to help students in classes, in the field, and in independent projects.
- Volunteering with organizations aiming to increase diversity in computing.
- Encouraging networking with other students, mentors, and company representatives.
- Providing students with opportunities to collaborate on personal projects.
Our members are dedicated students with an interest in Computer Science who aim to support each other, learn together, and challenge themselves. It is our hope that all CS majors and minors will plan to join Computer Science Connections.
Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE)
The Paul Hutcheson Delta Chapter of the International Computer Science Honorary was officially sanctioned in 1994. UPE is open to computer science majors (undergraduate and graduate) who have distinguished themselves as scholars. Invitations for membership are based on the following criteria. A graduate student must be a candidate for a graduate degree in Computer Science, and must have completed at least sixteen semester hours for graduate credit. Further, s/he must have a grade point average of at least 3.5 (on a four point scale). An undergraduate student must be a candidate for an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, and must have completed at least sixty-four semester hours for undergraduate credit including eighteen hours in computer science. Further, s/he must have an overall grade point average of at least 3.0, and a grade point average in Computer Science of at least 3.4 (on a four point scale).
