How to Become a Member

Members must be an enrolled graduate or undergraduate student at NC State University. Due to our focus on broadening participation in computing, we mainly recruit from computer science and electrical & computer engineering majors. However, we have also accepted students in non-technical majors if they have a strong background and/or interest in computing. There is no specific academic requirement; we encourage all interested students to join.

To join, please contact Amy Isvik ( to be added to the mailing list.
