Additionally, we are committed to fostering cultural diversity by promoting the recruitment, retention, and representation of minority students and faculty. Lastly, BGSO seeks to unify graduate and professional students across disciplines and organizations, while promoting the development of lifelong networks among students of color at the University of Florida.

CyberGators, a student-run organization within the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research, seeks to advance the field of cybersecurity through innovative and exciting research. Each student offers a unique perspective, building a diverse and well-rounded academic environment. CyberGators investigate all areas of information and hardware security, from the security of nanotechnology devices to integrated circuits and systems security and theoretical algorithms to internet-of-things. CyberGators also participate in an education program including seminar series, tutorials, short courses, and certificates within the nation’s premier multidisciplinary research institute in the advancement of cybersecurity.

The Data Science and Informatics Student Organization at UF connects students across academic programs by initiating group learning through technical workshops, speaker sessions, discussion groups and other activities.

DSI is partnered with the UF Informatics Institute.

The UF Digital Arts and Sciences Club‘s mission is to establish a community for Digital Arts and Sciences students and host DAS-themed events.

GAU represents all teaching assistants, research assistants, and other graduate assistants at UF. When you are a graduate assistant, you are more than just another student, you are also an employee of the University.

Gator UX is a University of Florida student organization that teaches and promotes user experience design

GatorVR provides a space for students to learn more about VR/AR technologies, work on group VR/AR projects, and meet like-minded peers.

Girls Who Code is a national nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology. Our programs educate, equip, and inspire girls with the computing skills they’ll need to pursue 21st-century opportunities. Our chapter at the University of Florida aims to achieve this by hosting coding workshops, professional development workshops, hackathons, office hours, guest speakers, GBMs, volunteering opportunities, and more.

Girls Who Code College Loops are university-level networks for college-aged women interested in tech to support one another and help each other persist and succeed in the field. College Loops build belonging and community through weekly meetings during the school year.

As a part of Google Developers, DSC at UF is one of many chapters in a global community of diverse individuals interested in growing themselves as developers. We offer opportunities for students to grow their knowledge in a peer-to-peer learning environment and build solutions for local businesses and their communities.

NSBE‘s mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers to excel academically, succeed professionally and to positively impact the community.

The purpose of the Open Source Club is to promote, support, and create open-source software.

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers Chapter at the University of Florida (SHPE UF) was formerly known as the Hispanic Engineering Society. It was founded in the fall of 1982 in an effort to provide Hispanic engineers, mathematicians, and scientists with opportunities to develop as professionals while offering an amiable social environment. Since its inception, it has prompted the recruitment, retention, and graduation of Hispanic students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The society coordinates community outreach, corporate exposition meetings, academic development programs, and non-technical events. All this to ensure SHPE UF members are presented with the opportunities necessary to succeed professionally, academically, and socially as Hispanic professionals.

SSD is a student organization that promotes good software development practices through workshops and lectures. We’ve had meetings covering a wide variety of topics in computer science, such as version control, test-driven development, and functional programming. Our meetings are a great place to introduce members of the club to the many fields and technologies in the vast world of computer science. Our club aims to bridge the gap between what students learn in class and what is expected of them in the industry. SSD is a close community of software developers, aspiring and experienced, aiming to help each other grow and learn.

SSD holds meetings on a weekly basis from the start of the semester to the end. Meetings are Wednesdays at 6:15 pm in Weil Hall room 234.

Exclusive to Graduate Students

GradSWE strives to encourage UF’s female engineering graduate students to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders. We host events for developing careers, promoting the presence of women in STEM, and building relationships with other female engineers.​

UF SEC strives to expose beginner computer science students to practical software development technologies and concepts they will not learn or be exposed to in their first or second year. These are technologies and skills that are heavily used in the industry and the real world but are not taught in classes. This can benefit the student to get involved with other clubs, hackathons, get a part-time internship doing development work, enable them to succeed in interviews, secure summer internships and full-time roles, and become a more knowledgeable developer.

UFSIT provides an environment for students (and anyone else who’s interested and willing to participate) to learn more about information security topics such as penetration testing, reverse engineering, exploit development, etc. The SIT holds weekly meetings that are student-led and regularly include presentations from local IT professionals and guest industry speakers. In addition to meetings, the SIT regularly participates in CTF events and hosts their own to help members sharpen their skills.

Swamphacks is a national 36-hour hackathon hosted at UF.

WiCSE is an ACM-W chapter at UF with a dual-focus: providing academic and professional resources to UF students and educating and encouraging younger generations. Membership is open to all students, both male and female, with an interest in computer science. WiCSE offers opportunities like Lunch and Learns with department faculty, Q&A panels with corporate sponsors and a mentoring program.

Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) at the University of Florida is a graduate student-run, grass-roots directed program of discussions, workshops, and networking events designed to foster the success of women and other members of under-represented groups at all stages of their careers in science and engineering by providing a forum for academic and personal guidance and support.

UF-TYPE Initiative is a student-run organization at the University of Florida, that acts as one of the outreach programs of UF’s Women in Computer Science and Engineering. Our mission is twofold: 1. Provide education to the Gainesville youth that wants to learn how to write code. 2. Create a community of Gainesville female computer scientists. We feel that if a student wants to learn something, they should have access to the tools and curricula in order to do so. We have noticed that many schools in the area lack the funding to implement computer science classes, and we understand that computer science can be a daunting subject to learn. So, we provide education to the students in Gainesville that want to learn computer science but don’t have the tools to do so.

Also, we believe that the lack of female interest in computer science stems from the fact that most girls don’t know of a single female computer scientist. This creates a chicken-egg problem that we solve by developing a community of girls in Gainesville that have an interest in computer science. We will do this by holding city-wide events like all-girl hackathons and coding workshops that will expose girls to other female computer scientists and bring together all of the girls interested in computer science in Gainesville. We hope that building this community will not only expose girls to the importance and power of code, but foster friendship, encouragement, and positivity in the girls’ lives.
