Students interested in career and professional development opportunities, establishing professional connections and receiving current computing and technical information should consider membership in either of the following student-lead chapters of these international organizations.
LeTourneau has its own chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery which is an avenue for computer science students to share ideas, compete against other schools, learn from professionals and get to know fellow students in an environment of shared interests.
LETU's 2012-13 programming team took 1st place in regional competitions, which earned the team an invitation to the World Finals in St. Petersburg, Russia!
The first place team of Team VC-22 included Terry Penner, a computer science and mathematics major from Kenora, Canada; Micah Shennum, a senior computer science network security major from Winona Lake, Ind.; and Daniel Rothfus, a junior computer science network security major from Fort Worth, Texas.
Some LeTourneau engineering and computer science students are members of this national technical professional association. The LeTourneau chapter sponsors periodic meetings with invited speakers on campus.
Additionally, we sponsor students to compete in the IEEE Region 5 (Southwestern U.S.) Circuit Design Competition every spring, where teams meet from across the region to test their design skills against each other.
Finally, fun activities and socials encourage our electrical and computer engineering students to develop enriching relationships with each other that can support mutual learning and academic success.
