IEEE is a technical professional society for engineers, computer scientists and technology professionals with student branches established at leading universities around the world. The IEEE Student Branch at the University of Michigan-Dearborn is a student organization on campus. This Student Branch was revived by several dedicated engineering students in the school year 2003-04. Currently, the UMD IEEE is a very active student organization and is striving to achieve the reputation of the largest technical/professional student organization at UMD.

The Association for Computing Machinery

Founded in 1947, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to advancing the art, science, engineering, and application of information technology, serving both professional and public interests by fostering the open interchange of information and by promoting the highest professional and ethical standards.

 

Here at the University of Michigan - Dearborn (UM-D), we established a new student chapter in 1995. Our only requirements for membership are an interest in computing and some connection to UM-D.

 

The student chapter of ACM is committed to providing members with an unparalleled and fun learning environment. One of our teams finished in the Top 25 at the 2002 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. Our student chapter hosts MPCon, the largest LAN Party in the State of Michigan.

Eta Kappa Nu

Eta Kappa Nu is an honor society that is for electrical and computer engineering. Eta Kappa Nu was founded in 1904 by Maurice Carr at the University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign, however the Theta Tau Chapter, at the University of Michigan - Dearborn, was not founded until 1981. The members of the Theta Tau Chapter have dedicated themselves to improving their school, their community, and the engineering field. They strive towards this goal through community service and by providing services to students.
