The Largest Computing
Society, now at UPES



UPES-ACM Student Chapter has been active since 2010 with its first organised activity being a Poster Presentation Competition with the theme “IT Applications in Energy Studies”.

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.
Since then the Chapter has come a long way with organising various technical and non-technical events year-long in the University. UPES ACM is not only the most active Student Chapter at the University but is also a huge family of more than 200 members.
UPES ACM is the first international Student Chapter in the Computer Science Department to be introduced in the University. ACM also started a very successful initiative for women in computing, i.e. ACM-W, ACM for Women. ACM was the first ever Chapter to start free mentorship programs with which many students and coders were able to improve their coding. UPES ACM has time and again proved it's success by winning various international awards throughout the years.


Making a Change


A way for students to learn C and interact with their seniors. UPES ACM devised this initiative to help introduce students to programming languages and their delights. Spy C melds the rules of code with the imagination of humans.


UPES-ACM and ACM-W hosts interactive technical workshops that helps foster innovation and sharpen skills. We at UPES ACM and ACM W, think of ways to make the world a better place by being the change we want to see.


The CSR team puts their words to action, and brings smiles across the faces of the underprivileged society. The team parts education in the most exciting manner and makes the activities as interactive and intriguing as possible.


Code anytime, an initiative augmented by UPES ACM and ACM-W in an effort to develop acoding culture within campus. An environment where *everyone* is provided with theopportunity to code, learn and grow.

Corporate Social Responsibility

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.”
― Michael Jordan

On June 15th, the CSR Team of UPES ACM-W visited the Kalyan Smiti, an NGO in Delhi, conducting an event outside of Dehradun for the very first time. The team of volunteers taught high school girls about the basics of computers and various other application software during two highly interactive sessions. It was an enlightening session filled with knowledge and fun. The session was a complete success due to the efforts of the various volunteers and the Heads, but the key to our success was the enthusiasm of the girls who were bright, engaging and eager to learn. We were encouraged to walk on our chosen path by Kalyan Smiti, a dedicated NGO.


Code Anytime

“Everybody in this country should learn to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think”
― Steve Jobs

Code anytime, an initiative augmented by UPES ACM and ACM-W in an effort to develop a coding culture within campus. It's an open minded atmosphere where there is room for error and ample opportunities to learn. In lieu of a student-teacher dynamic, we've chosen to build an environment where students themselves are pushed to harness their inner coder. They are encouraged to come forward with any programming language related queries, get their doubts cleared and master the language. There are no barriers; anyone and everyone is welcome. It's a platform where everyone is provided with the opportunity to code, learn and grow
