What We Do

We Work

We partner with employers to provide students networking and employment opportunities. We host both large and small scale events that provide intimate access to highly competitive and sought after employers.

We Code

We are passionate about technology and service. We develop applications that benefit the Carnegie Mellon community at large.

We Play

While much of what ACM does it career or self development oriented, we understand the importance of friendship and relaxation. ACM often hosts get-togethers including networking dinners, ice cream socials and board game nights.

We Share

ACM regularly organizes a variety of talks ranging from social topics like “How to prepare for an interview” and technical topics from “An introduction to Rasberry Pi”, “Debugging Distributed Systems” to “Crossing Numbers, Humanity and Beauty of Math”.

Our Skills


If at first you don't succeed... try doing what your mentor told you to do the first time. Our world-class mentors can help you out with any problems you have.


Error: Joke not found. We are just that good at connecting people.


I'll take OS, I'll take Compilers and I will even take Algorithms, but Graphics is where I draw the line! With a wide variety of experiences, our members are a shining example of the best at CMU.

Computer Science

We love servers and stuff. From hackathons to tech talks, we eat, breathe and sleep computer science.

Job Opportunities

Dream job guaranteed.*
*Terms and conditions may apply.

Professional Development

Invest in yourself and become the best you can be.

Social Connections

Facebook Friends == Friends for life? Learn how to meet people and make meaningful relationships.


Because wrangling bits is easier than managing people. At ACM, you will have plenty of opportunities to organize events and lead the charge.

A Little About Us

ACM@CMU is Carnegie Mellon's student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery, the leading premier organization for computing professionals. We are dedicated to promoting interdisciplinary computing and enabling professional development on campus.

Celebrating 50 Years of Computing's Greatest Achievements

By ACM |

Since its inauguration in 1966, the ACM A.M. Turing Award has recognized major contributions of lasting importance in computing. Through the years, it has become the most prestigious technical award in the field, often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of computing.”

During the next several months, ACM will celebrate 50 years of the Turing Award and the visionaries who have received it. Our aim is to highlight the significant impact of the contributions of the Turing Laureates on computing and society, to look ahead to the future of technology and innovation, and to help inspire the next generation of computer scientists to invent and dream.

Meet Chris Hankin

Chris Hankin is Professor of Computer Science and Co-Director of the Institute for Security Science and Technology at Imperial College London. He is also Director of the UK’s Research Institute in Trustworthy Industrial Control Systems.

He is Chair of the ACM Europe Council and serves on ACM’s Publications Board. He was Editor-in-Chief of ACM Computing Surveys from 2007 to 2013.

“The main lesson [of the Equifax breach] is the importance of acting promptly on notification of software updates.”

Introducing Proceedings of the ACM

By ACM |
Proceedings of the ACM (PACM) is a new journal series with first issues planned for 2017.

It is being launched in recognition of the fact that conference-centric publishing disadvantages the CS community with respect to other scientific disciplines when competing with researchers from other disciplines for top science awards and career progression, and the fact that top ACM conferences have demonstrated high quality and high impact on the field.
