Students in the computer science program often join one of our dynamic student organizations.
These student groups are very active and provide additional opportunities for trips and professional development.
S&T offers numerous opportunities for you to develop your leadership skills in any of our 200-plus recognized student organizations.
Student chapter of the ACM. Organized in 1962 as the second chapter of its kind in the country. The purpose of this active student organization is to provide information on the science and art of information processing, including the views of prominent speakers, on many different computer science-oriented topics.
Association that celebrates, informs and supports women in computing, and works with the ACM-W community of computer scientists, educators, employers and policy makers to improve working and learning environments for women.
A special interest group within Missouri S&T’s ACM that focuses primarily on competitive programming. With weekly lectures from Dr. Morales we tackle challenge problems from many online judge websites such as Kattis (open.kattis.com) and UVA (uva.onlinejudge.org). We also hold our own programming contests on campus where people can win the admiration of their peers and some great prizes.
A data focused org covering topics like Data Science, Data Mining, Data Analytics, and Data Engineering. Data Science, commonly seen as a combination of most data professions, is a new field with an infinite landscape. Our goal is to catalyze a new era of Data Science by using our curiosity to explore this landscape and push new standards. In SIG-Data, we participate in competition sites such as Kaggle, tell stories using data, learn what’s new in Data Science, and whatever is necessary to be cutting edge.
Introduces students to the world of hackathons: weekend long events where students come together to turn ideas into reality. We organize, travel and attend events across the Midwest and country. We also run PickHacks, the annual student-run hackathon held at S&T in March. Alongside hackathons, we also host events about various design thinking concepts, hackathon preparation, and much more. Skill level and major doesn’t matter here — as long as you like building new things and meeting awesome people, SIG-Hack is right for you.
SIG Sec is focused on computer and network security. Meetings are bi-weekly, with speakers on topics ranging from software vulnerabilities and real-world tools, to security projects and research. The group also works on projects such as building WIFI antennas, wireless auditing of open networks, security auditing of student computers, and a red team versus blue team competition where each team defends a server from the attacks and entry of the other team.
A student operated software development organization. Each semester we develop a unique game aimed at AI vs AI gameplay, and launch it at the MegaMinerAI competition. There we invite students, alumni, employers, and anyone interested to compete for 24 hours to see who can code the best AI!
Interested in software engineering, web development, or development operations? In SIG-Web, we attempt to build production-grade websites using software engineering skills and development patterns with weekly development meetings. Currently, SIG-Web is developing the acm.mst.edu website. Moreover, we host workshops on various foundational skills such as Python, Git, HTML, CSS, and many others.
Association of more than 200 North American academic departments of computer science, computer engineering, and related fields; laboratories and centers in industry, government, and academia engaging in basic computing research; and affiliated professional societies.
Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the international computer science honor society. Missouri S&T has had a chapter since 1973. Each semester outstanding undergraduate and graduate students are invited to join. Members of the student chapter provide instruction for Boy Scout Merit Badge testing. From 1977-79, the National President of UPE was a Missouri S&T faculty member.
