Student Clubs & Organizations
ACM Student Chapter
ACM stands for the Association for Computing Machinery. In this student chapter of the official computer society, we host various presentations from a variety of speakers, discuss current technology developments, and engage in hands-on projects. Our technology fields include ethical hacking, robotics/electronic DIY, Cryptography/Cryptocurrency/Encryption, gaming/retro-gaming devices, general skills like web design, programming, and introduction to internships and much more! Even though our focus is on giving Computer Science, Information Systems, and Information Technology majors real-world experience, we offer events for students of all majors to enjoy. Please look through the photos to see all of our past projects. All of our events are open to all majors and we encourage non-technology majors to participate due to the increasing technology dependence in the world. This is a club for all levels of knowledge and questions are encouraged.
IEEE Student Chapter
The purpose of the CCU IEEE Student Chapter is to educate others about Electrical and Electronics Engineering as well as give students real-life experience in the field. CCU IEEE aims to create a greater interest in computer engineering and surrounding topics. This Student Chapter is chartered by the IEEE.
National Society of Black Engineers
The National Society of Black Engineers is traditionally an organization that strives to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. As we are in a full stride digital culture, we envision a world in which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color, and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers. As a part of the Coastal Carolina community, we expand this vision and mission to include not only Blacks as under-represented individuals but all minorities and the community at large, who desire to be a part of the STEM industry.
Numbers & Bytes Student Chapter
N&B will focus on gaming opportunities for its student members as well as opportunities for networking and jobs in the field of technology and gaming.
UPE (Upsilon Pi Epsilon)
Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the honor society that recognizes academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in computing and information disciplines. UPE membership is by invitation only.
Women in STEM Women Student Club
In STEM Club supports, celebrates, and advocates internationally for the engagement of women in all aspects of the STEM field, providing programs and services to members and working in the community to advance the contributions of technical women.
- The Women in STEM Student Club was originally the Women in Computing Student Club. The members expanded the club to include all STEM fields. The Women in STEM Student Club is not the same thing as the Women in STEM Fellowship.
Women in STEM Fellowship
The Women in STEM Fellowship equips female students in male-dominated STEM majors with the tools to deal successfully with challenges, intimidation, and stereotype threat and to make them feel like they belong in their areas of interest. The fellowship offers a mentoring program, financial support for conference travel, research, workshops, and other professionalization opportunities, and brings prominent female speakers in STEM fields to CCU to serve as role models for our fellows.
