Lehigh's engineering students are active in a wide range of activities, from professional associations to the arts.  Organizations for students in Computer Science include:  The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and Honor Societies.


The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), an international society of computer professionals, has a student chapter at Lehigh University. Student members receive the monthly publication "Communications of the ACM" as well as "ACM Crossroads", may participate in ACM Special Interest Groups and conferences (at reduced rates), and have access to ACM employment aids and the Graduate Assistant Directory in Computer Science. The local student chapter hosts seminars given by ACM-sponsored lecturers, social events in conjunction with the IEEE student chapter, and special meetings focusing on research activities in the Department, employment opportunities, and other topics. To join, fill out an application form for the ACM on the national ACM website. For more information, visit the Lehigh ACM website or contact the chapter advisor, Prof. Corey Montella.


ACM-W supports, celebrates, and advocates internationally for the full engagement of women in all aspects of the computing field, providing a wide range of programs and services to ACM members and working in the larger community to advance the contributions of technical women. To join, fill out an application form for the ACM-W (found in PA 200); or the ACM-W website.  For more information, contact the chapter advisor, Prof. Sharon Kalafut.
