The FAMU CST Department of Computer & Information Sciences offers a variety of student organizations designed to help you acquire the skills needed for a successful career in CIS.

Clubs & Organizations

  • Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Logo 
    Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

    The ACM @ FAMU started in 1998 with 15 members. We are the local organization for the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Via our parent organization, we provide CIS students with the computing field’s premier Digital Library and leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources. 

    Each semester, the ACM @ FAMU hosts several events, including a Student Experience Panel. This is a space to receive guidance from your fellow students. Students share their experience earning and completing internships, attending conferences, participating in research, and other opportunities. It’s a splendid chance to get first-person tips from someone that has been in your shoes. We also host events that allow students to gain technical knowledge, soft skills, and meet with industry experts. 

  • Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Logo 
    Association for Computing Machinery Committee on Women (ACM-W) 

    The ACM-W supports, celebrates, and advocates internationally for the full engagement of women in all aspects of the computing field. They provide a wide range of programs and services to ACM members and work in the larger community to advance the contributions of technical women. The ACM-W @ FAMU commits to supporting, celebrating, and advocating for women in computing at FAMU and the wider community.

    We focus on advancing and highlighting women and girls in computing. As part of Women’s Month, each March, the ACM-W @ FAMU hosts a Women in Computing (WiC) Panel. Our panel includes a diverse group of women of different races, cultures, and experience levels. The panel discusses the challenges of being a woman in computing and what future we hope to strive for. Each panelist has a unique story that we hope will guide the next generation of women and create the next generation of supporters. We also host events that allow students to gain technical knowledge, soft skills, and meet with industry experts.
