ACM VIIT Student Branch


ACM VIIT Student Chapter was formed on 31st October 2019 with 30 core members and 135 ACM VIIT Chapter Members. ACM VIIT Student Chapter aims to provide students unique opportunities for networking, mentoring, and bonding over common interests by offering a range of resources and benefits, to help them shape the future of computing. The idea was wholeheartedly supported by the Head of the Computer Engineering department at VIIT, Dr. Sachin Sakhare whose guidance and encouragement led the chapter. We encourage students to become the best version of themselves while making sure we keep learning from them too, keeping in motion with our motto:"WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS"



  • ACM VIIT strengthens the computing profession's collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. 
  • We support the professional growth of the students by providing opportunities for lifelong learning, career development, and professional networking.
  • As the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, It also delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. 
  • ACM VIIT has provided quality content and information, community building, reliability, and global vision to its members. It is this unique role that makes ACM the leading resource for advancing the skills of computing professionals and for interpreting the impact of information technology on society.

  • The last day of Horizon was scheduled for the 17th of February at 12:30 pm. This was the most awaited and most successful day of Horizon as attendees joined the event in massive numbers as the guest speaker was the GOOGLE guy.


III. ACM Weekly

ACM weekly was an event organized by VIIT ACM. This was a 2-day event that was held online and included some non-technical kinds of stuff like improvising skills like public speaking, presentation skills, body language, and confidence-building. While working in the corporate world we require both technical and non-technical skills like public speaking, body language, presentation skills, etc. So, this event was about improvising these skills in students. There were 50 participants throughout the session. There were technical events conducted too. The beginning was to walk students through the complete web development process. It was a technical event based on “Full stack web development”. This was a two-day event where two of our committee members gave the roadmap to this for creating amazing websites and projects. It also helped the attendees as they can add these projects to their resumes as well. Overall, 120 participants were there throughout the session, they attended the session with full curiosity and enthusiasm. The thing which takes this event to great success is that 60% of participants have successfully made the website.
