Association for Computing Machinery Kean University Chapter

About Our Chapter

The chapter at Kean University has been around for over three years with the goal of helping students better understand what it means to be to be involved in the world of computer science, information technology, and information systems. With the full support of the College of Computing Sciences, we’ve been able to speak with people in the various fields of computing to learn how to apply the knowledge we’ve learned at Kean in the business world. We also branch out into other activities that our members are interested in and motivated to do. We also tutor students in a variety of CPS classes. ACM is an excellent forum for ideas related to the world of computing, with a vast range of conferences and competitions to help get your ideas out there.

The purpose of the this chapter is to organize Kean University students who are interested in computing and the technology involved in it so that they may be able to share their knowledge and skills with their peers, as well as learn from them.

If you are interested in learning more about us, stop by our meetings in Willis Hall 400 on Thursdays at 3:30. Meetings usually last an hour. Members will be notified prior to any change in the meeting time or location.
