ACM VIT is one of the most popular chapters at VIT, and was started in October, 2009 by Kuldeep Singh. Since then, we at ACM VIT have carried on the legacy of ACM international.

ACM brings together computing educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources, and address the field's challenges. As the world’s largest computing society, ACM strengthens the profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. ACM supports the professional growth of its members by providing opportunities for lifelong learning, career development, and professional networking.

Every year we impart knowledge to hundreds of students and help them understand how they can contribute to the field of computing science. We conduct several technical events in a year. We nurture the growth of inquisitive minds by providing them with the toolkit to excel in various fields.
