Computer Science Club

The Computer Science Club was formed to generate, advance, and share students’ interests in the Computer and Information Sciences and Technology. The club meets weekly, and the club members decide on activities to be pursued in any particular academic year.

Some of the past activities in which the club has been involved in the past include:

  • The CAIS Department purchased a Lego Mindstorm NXT robot building kit for the club, and the club members built Lego robots that interact with the environment through sensors (light, sonic, touch, ultrasonic) and motors.

  • The club held a programming contest, where club members solved problems excerpted from the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest.

  • The club did a study on Artificial Intelligence based on the textbook “Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach” by Russell and Norvig.

  • The club has invited a number of speakers, addressing such topics as open source movement and game programming.

  • The club designed and developed a Web site for the CAIS Department.

  • The club built a MUD (Multi-user Dungeon)-type game.

  • The club has held yearly picnics.

The club meets Wednesday 5pm-6pm in Wilson 407
