The Association for Women in Computing at the University of Maryland

The Association for Women in Computing is composed of a group of students who encourage women to enter and progress in the Computer Science field. In present years, the number of women in the field has been declining. It is our purpose, through the establishment of a support system, including mentoring, group tutoring and study group formation, to end this decline.
We have quite a year planned with social events, company speakers and seminars. Please stop by any of our meetings and see what we are about; all are welcome to attend. For more information, please e-mail us at, and we will be happy to answer your questions.

Upcoming Events

Stop by room 3147 of A.V. William building between 5:00 - 6:30 pm every Thursday for Code, Question, and Kvetch. Study and debug with your friends from AWC with free snacks!
