UPES-ACM Student Chapter started its activity from April 2010 by organizing a Poster Presentation competition on the theme ‘IT Applications in Energy Sectors’. We also organized Paper Presentation competition on “Green Computing” besides community program in the year 2010 and 2011 for Computer Awareness. We participated in this program and taught computer skills to students from nearby village schools organized by Corporate Social Responsibility cell of the University.
“Dreams pass on to the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again, and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.” Anais Nin couldn’t have put it better. We at University Of Petroleum and Energy Studies’ ACM chapter thrive on this piece of wisdom. With every new step taken, we aim to fulfill our ambition, and in the course of this actualization, we realize better and more ambitious goals.
The Chapter has won the Runners Up Award at the ACM India Annual Conference 2015 for the Best Student Chapter Category, and only months later, it won the Award for Best Chapter in the category Outstanding Chapter Activities for the awesome events and activities that the Chapter organized in the session.
ACM became one of the first chapters in the university to organize a Distinguished Speaker Program, wherein, Professor Hanan Samet, an acknowledged scholar in the field of GPS, enlightened students about his latest work in the field of GIS technology.
The chapter also maintains a balance between co-curricular events and extra-curricular events as it is well known that all work and no play make Jack a dull boy.
The University of Petroleum and Energy Studies apart from academic brilliance has always believed in bridging the gap between the industry requirement and what the industry lacks.
The UPES ACM members are not only from Computer Science streams, but also of higher and more distinguished studies’ streams like Masters Course in Artificial Neural Networks, Computational Fluid Dynamics, etc.
With the integrity to honour, follow and set international standards through, UPES ACM Student Chapter will always endeavour to follow its motto: “A journey set to make histories!”
