Student Organizations

Computer Science Student Groups

CS student groups reflect the diverse interests, backgrounds, and passions of our student body and can enhance your learning and team experiences around computing.

  • Association for Computing Machinery (ACM): has over 20 SIGs (Special Interest Groups) that explore the possibilities of computers and learning how to use and develop them. Helps organize HackIllinois and the Reflections | Projections Conference.
  • B[U]ILT (Black, Indigenous, LatinX in Technology): an newly formed student organization leveraging the groundwork laid by two previous student clubs (BAAC: Black & African Americans in Computing and LCS: Latinxs in Computer Science) to provide support for minorities in computing related fields that fosters scholarship, professional development, and a sense of community.
  • CS Grad Student Organization (CSGSO): the organization for computer science graduate students at the University of Illinois.
  • Founders: has events and programs to nurture a strong culture and environment that educates, inspires, and motivates people interested in entrepreneurship.
  • Project: Code: an organization that allows introductory and intermediate programmers to learn and explore with like-minded peers through group-based programming projects.
  • Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM): aims to advance the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society.
  • Women in Computer Science (WCS): an educational, service-focussed organization dedicated to supporting the efforts of young women interested in computer science and technology.
