Our Student Clubs

There are a lot of ways students can get involved on campus and student clubs are an excellent start. Bulldog Link lists every club on campus and the following are the groups that relate specifically to our Computer Science students.

ACM Club

For Computer Science students and all interested in computers at UMD.

Robotics at UMD

Formerly known as Battlebots, this club is devoted to inspiring students in science and technology. From building and flying model aircraft to competing in nation-level battlebots competitions, there's a place for everyone in this club. 

Software Development Club at UMD (DEV Club)

Work on a project while sharing knowledge across the collective languages of the group’s membership.

Women in Computing Club

Network with fellow women interested in computer science research and consider taking part in regional competitions where students can showcase their work.

MinneWIC Regional Computing Conference 

February 16th, 2019 4:00pm-9:30pm

February 17th, 2019 8:00am- 2:00pm

UMD Kirby Rafters

MinneWIC is the ACM-W Celebration of Women in Computing for the Upper MidWest. We call it MinneWIC from the native american word "Minne" that means water.

This regional meeting will bring together students, faculty, and computing professionals from across Minnesota and neighboring states to share experiences and strategies for recruiting and retaining women in computing fields, and explore issues common to women working in these fields. Specifically, the goal is to provide an opportunity for young women to explore career opportunities in computing, and to network with women from academia, industry and government. This celebration is part of a nationwide effort to address the alarming decline of women choosing computer science professions.

Women in Engineering and Science (WES)

Step away from the everyday stress of student life to bowl, eat pizza, take tours and do other fun things with other women interested in the sciences.
