YCP Engineering and Computer Science Student Clubs

The Collegiate Engineering Society (CES) at York College of Pennsylvania is a student club designed to unite the many disciplines of engineering offered at York College as well as to create a social atmosphere which students can enjoy. We strive to connect students with faculty and upperclassmen to ensure that the students are receiving the best education possible at the college without overloading students.

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Student Chapter is aimed at providing students with opportunities in Computer Science outside of the classroom. Members are given the chance to attend ACM sponsored conferences for activities such as programming competitions, networking, and sharing research. Meetings are held so members can decide on future events and casually socialize with others about the computing profession. The York College ACM student chapter is not limited to any subset of majors and is open to any student with an interest in computers.
