Student groups provide a rich set of extra-curricular experiences, from leadership to mentorship, project work to volunteering, and professional development to social and just for fun. With over 400 student groups on campus, including 5 in computer science, there is something for everyone!
The Department of Computer Science has 7 student organizations:
Robotics Club (RAS Robotics and Automation Society)
We are a club that is 40 strong; comprised of many members from varying majors, varying years, and varying experience.
If you’ve never had any robotic experience, or if you’ve had a decades worth, we encourage you to join.
In addition to building robots we host social events, skills workshops, and company tours.
Pitt Cybersecurity Club
In an increasingly connected world, the Computer Security Club is a place for students to get together and discuss methods of attacking and defending computer systems. We host capture-the-flag events as well as weekly meetings to discuss security-relevant current events and tackle mock security challenges.
Pitt LAN and Gaming Club
The Purpose of the LAN Party and Gaming Club (LPC) is to facilitate and promote the group-oriented playing of video games on both consoles and computers, organize amateur tournaments among its members, and allow video game enthusiasts to discuss the playing and development of video games from both an artistic, technical and industry perspective. The club’s members will include a wide range of enthusiasts, from casual gamers to the art, business and computer science students interested in careers in the multi-billion dollar video game industry.
