The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is an international learned society for computing. It was founded in 1947 and is the world's largest scientific and educational computing society. The ACM Student Chapter at FAST-NUCES Karachi Campus is dedicated to the promotion of computing education, research and development.
We do our atmost to deliver the latest and most innovative educational and professional development resources that our members require to strengthen their skill sets and enrich their careers.
A renowned and illustrious event, Coders Cup is an annual Intra-University Speed Programming Competition held in the very labs of FAST-NUCES, Main Campus, Karachi. Coders Cup is a step ahead of all other programming competitions as it helps buff the conceptual programming skills of young coders who are determined to sharpen their skills.
Like the past two years, we are organizing an interactive event between the officials of different IT firms and the students of our university. This event will beneficially help them to get to know the industry and how it works. They will interact with the officials and ask them different questions regarding their upcoming professional life. Similarly, those officials would exactly know about the caliber and skills of the next generation of software engineers.
Specially selected students conduct workshops and sessions on the latest development tools and languages which are not part of the curriculum but are very much in demand and needed in the swift006Cy progressing tech world. Moreover, these mentors aim on discussing and explaining computer science topics which are difficult to understand. Example: logic-I and logic-2 (for freshmen), Machine learning (for juniors and seniors)
The primary goal is to deploy a working, live project that can in any way facilitate FASTians. ACM plans to make a team of 3-5 mentors along with a leader. This team will work throughout the year and in the end deploy their project which will benefit all FASTians in numerous ways.
ACM believes that the best way for a student to test their abilities is by competing hands-on in competitions. ACM’s training team, will develop a culture where students are prepared for participating in different competitions whether it be inside the university or outside. We aim on training teams for Speed Programming, Database Design and Web Development so far. The process consists of weekly quizzes, along with connecting teams with experienced seniors who have represented FAST in previous competitions.
