Speed ACM

University of Louisville's Student Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery


The Speed ACM is the student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery at the University of Louisville. We are dedicated to anything and everything computing and to providing our members the resources and support that they need to succeed!

Who we are

The Speed ACM is the Association for Computing Machinery Student Chapter at the University of Louisville. We are dedicated to providing resources for students interested in all things computing! We foster community by hosting fun events such as alumni workshops, documentary screenings, gaming nights, community dinners, professional seminars, and volunteer opportunities. We also have Student Interest Groups (SIGs) dedicated to Game Development, Hacking, Linux, and Cybersecurity. Members often spend time with each other in our lab in the basement of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering building in Room LL002. Here, students can find a snack shop, a lending library of technology, textbooks, and a study space.

Student Interest Groups

Expand your skills, learn, meet new people, and have fun!

Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition - State Qualifing Team

Cyber Defense

Cyber Defense is our SIG dedicated to cyber security. We discuss security topics, host hands-on training, and participate in competitions.

Tux the Linux Penguin


SLUG is our Student Linux User Group. Meetings focus on spreading the gospel of Linux, learning something new, and getting a little nerdy.

Game Dev!

Game Dev

Game Development is our SIG to learn how to make games! This is a fun club to get started in game programming, game design, game art, or advance your skills.



Hacking SIG is not about cyber hacking. If you want to learn about electronics, hackathons, or sometimes just use hardware or software for their unintended purposes.

Meeting Times

General Body Meetings: Second Tuesday of every month at 12:20 PM
Executive Council Meetings: 7 PM on Thursday in the lab and Discord
