American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)

The purpose of the Gator Chapter of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society is to provide a sense of community for Indigenous students on campus and to raise awareness of Indigenous culture on campus. The goal of the student organization is to substantially increase the representation of American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, First Nations and other indigenous peoples of North America in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies and careers. Membership is open to any student who is in good standing with UF and is interested in discovering and supporting the indigenous STEM community.

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

The UF Chapter of the ACM consists primarily of undergraduate students seeking degrees in computer engineering or computer science. It welcomes all students to attend meetings who have an interest in computers and offers several services to undergraduates including free tutoring in computer classes, assistance in picking courses, a library of books in its office and a computer lab for members.

Benton Engineering Council (BEC)

The mission of the BEC is to serve the engineering student body by means of aiding the development of societies found within the BEC, by serving as the link between engineering students and the bodies which govern them and by advancing the name of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering to UF students as well as the surrounding community.

Black Graduate Student Organization

The Black Graduate Student Organization (BGSO) is an interdisciplinary, multi-ethnic organization that is dedicated to identifying and addressing the needs of graduate and professional students of African, African American, or Afro Caribbean descent at the University of Florida. Founded in 1975 with a rich tradition deeply rooted in advocacy, BGSO aims to enhance the graduate experience of its members by offering academic and professional support, providing opportunities for community outreach and service, in addition to cultivating professional development and academic excellence. 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

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.

Graduate Assistants United (GAU)

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.

National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)

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

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)

SHPE membership is open to any engineering, math or science student who is in good standing with UF.

Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

SWE stimulates women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expands the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrates the value of diversity.

Swamphacks

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

The Software Engineering Club (UF SEC)

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.

UF Digital Arts and Sciences Club

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.

UF Society of Software Developers (SSD)

The Society of Software Developers prepares students for industry by teaching professional software development skills including version control, testing, and documentation. Students learn advanced concepts outside of the classroom and apply them in club projects. SSD welcomes students of all experience levels and majors

UF Student InfoSec Team (UFSIT)

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.

Women in Computer Science and Engineering (WiCSE)

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.
