The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is an organization that consists of students from a variety of backgrounds who share a common interest in computer science. ACM is open to all students, faculty, and staff from Wayne State University. In the Winter 2016 semester, a handful of your fellow computer science students got together with the help of the CS faculty to get this organization started again. ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession.
