TAMUhack seeks to foster a community of student developers that create and innovate beyond what is taught in the classroom. We have done this mostly through hackathons which we attend all around the country. People in our community have gone to the University of Pennsylvania, Facebook headquarters, Berkeley, Georgia Tech, UT- Austin, UT- Dallas, and many other schools across the country. We are not a conventional club as we have no set meeting dates, or membership dues. It is just the community, friendship, and passion for out field that brings us together to work on awesome projects.
Since 1973, the Texas A&M Computing Society has been dedicated to fostering an environment for students to explore, engage and advance the art, science, engineering, and application of information technology. As the student chapter of both the Association of Computing Machinery andIEEE Computer Society, we encourage and support professional development by sponsoring industry speakers and providing numerous networking opportunities. In addition, we focus on personal growth and continued learning with venues like the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, Techapaloozas and Student Research Competitions. We also help computer science students with regular class reviews, project hosting, and provide means for student concerns to be brought to the faculty and staff.
Texas Aggie Game Developers
TAGD was formed at Texas A&M University, College Station, over the Summer of 2003 by a group of students who all shared a similar passion, making video games. Realizing that getting a job in the games industry with solely a degree in Computer Science was simply not realistic, this organization was established by Jacob Foshee to help students learn and gain experience in game development. Over the years, TAGD has evolved its ways of learning, gaining experience and setting priorities for its members to be coherent with the present and the future expectations of the industry.
