MIT ACM/IEEE represents the student branch for two international organizations, the Association for Computing Machinery and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. MIT ACM/IEEE plans different events and activities for the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department at MIT, better known as Course VI. These activities include research panels and discussions, group trips (e.g. Museum of Science, IMAX), Faculty Dinners for students, study breaks, and other exciting events.
We're made up of a set of officers on the Executive Board as well as a general membership. Membership is as easy as sending a bit of information about yourself to us. For details, check out the membership page.
Our club also manages a couple of community-building programs - URGE brings students together for discussion of technical papers in casual reading groups, the Six Cents program sponsors research and travel for deserving individuals, 6.Insight is a jointly-held seminar series, and 6.570 is a new mobile apps development competition. For more details on each of these programs, go to our Programs page.
We look forward to seeing you at our Course VI events!

We have a lot of exciting events planned for this semester, including a General Body Meeting on 3/14 from 5:30-6:30 PM (location TBD), and joint events with local startups!
URGE is a student-run program designed encourage deep technical learning in a casual/social environment. Too often for MIT undergrads, the social and the technical are separated. URGE brings together people with similar technical interests to interact as friends and colleagues, crossing the formal boundaries of classes, year, and living group.
URGE provides a framework for discussing technical papers over several dinners in the course of a semester. Through these dinners, your learning of a particular field will be made rich by the camaraderie of others who care.
