The students of our department form a diverse and vibrant part of the CIS community. There are many different ways to get involved in student life at UAB CIS outside of the classroom, including our student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), research opportunities throughout our research laboratories or through the Undergraduate Honors Research program, becoming a tutor in the CIS Tutoring program, or creating a student web site.
The Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) is the world's oldest and largest scientific computing society. The UAB ACM is the ACM's local student chapter for the UAB community. It has been active continuously since 1984, providing UAB's computer science and related students and professionals with educational and social opportunities.
UAB's student chapter of the ACM runs a tutoring program for CIS undergraduates. Each semester, tutoring is available for CS201, CS250 and CS302. In addition, there are usually some tutors capable of tutoring for higher level classes. For example, we also have tutors available for CS303 and CS350.
This service is available free of charge for CIS majors and minors in these classes. The tutoring facility is located in CH134 (in the Campbell Hall atrium). No appointment is necessary.
Please refer to the tutoring schedule for exact days and times.
