The Department of Computer Science encourages its students to become involved in organizations to improve their knowledge of computer science.
Organizations such as ACM, ACMW and FSLC all have local chapters to increase the knowledge of their respective members.
Other national organizations such as OSG, IEEE and AACE are encouraged to set up local chapters to increase the understanding of computer science at Utah State.
The Department of Computer Science offers as much help and support as needed for these organizations to aid in their learning and activities.
