Welcome to ACM at UAB

Come !

The Association for Computing Machinery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham represents UAB's student branch for the nationwide ACM organization. ACM is a national society dedicated to advancing computating as a science and as a profession. Please browse the website for more information regarding UAB's ACM student organization.

About ACM

UAB's ACM is a student lead organization that brings together teachers, students and researchers and connects them with other ACM members worldwide. UAB's ACM is only a small part of a much larger global network of computing professionals. UAB's ACM hosts events such as hackathons, informational lectures and game nights for its members and any technology related individuals who would like to attend. UAB's ACM offers free tutoring services to anyone in the Computer and Information Sciences major, hosts an ongoing group chat for all ACM members, manages Github projects for all ACM members to contribute to and so much more. Here are some of UAB's ACM's goals:


Promote knowledge of the science, design, development, languages, and applications of modern computing technology.


Network professional, academic, and other groups of people having interests in computing machinery.


Provide a greater awareness of computing machinery and its applications at national and local levels.


Empower those with an interest in computing machinery and it's applications with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed.

Events (Fall 2016)

Support yourself and ACM by coming to the awesome events hosted by ACM. These events range from fun and games to resume building and hacking competitions. Events are also a great way to meet other students and network.

Welcome Event (9/7/16)

New on campus? Don’t really know many people in Computer Science? Come join us for free food, video games, card games, and much more to socialize with one another and the executive committee. This is a great opporunity to meet fellow students and prepare for the upcoming semester.

Game Night II: Wrath of the Cards (9/26/2016)

Get ready for the second round of ACM game night fun. This event is based around all types of card games, both fun and competitive. Come relax, meet some new people, get some free food, and maybe even win some sweet prizes.

Git Workshop (10/17/2016)

How are you saving your work? Flash Drive? Dropbox? Just locally on your computer? Let us show you how to efficiently save your coding projects the smart way with Git.

Hackathon (11/5/2016)

Quick on your feet? Prove it. Come win prizes and show your classmates you’re the most creative, fastest thinking, and overall better competitor in this one day Arduino based Hackathon.

Resume Building/Interviewing (11/14/2016)

Think your resume could use some improvements? Terrified of job interviews? We’ve invited a few businesses from around Birmingham to come talk about what they look for on a resume and in the job interview. This is also a great way to meet a few companies around town looking to hire Computer Science students.

End of Semester Celebration (11/28/2016)

With finals approaching, let's take an hour to relieve some stress as we go out to socialize and have some fun with this student event that will be voted on by ACM members.


Tutoring is for classes included in the Computer and Information Sciences cirriculum. Tutoring is free to anyone currently taking any CIS classes. ACM members have full access to direct messaging to all of UAB's ACM tutors.
