Team

Every academic year graduate students in the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering (CSEE) department at UMBC, who are also members of ACM, are elected to the posts of Chair, Vice–Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. These officers plan, organize and manage the student chapter events. Since the beginning of academic year 2018–2019, the student officers are assisted by students who volunteer to be part of various committees focused on specific events that repeat throughout the year. The student officers also work under the guidance of faculty advisers from the CSEE department.
