Computer Science Clubs

Denver University Computer Science Club (DUCS)

DUCS is an ACM affiliated club that offers a community to undergraduate and graduate students interested in computer science. Each quarter DUCS hosts smaller events called “hangouts,” like Super Smash Bros Challenge nights to playing board games to a Game of Thrones viewing. Other events are for career development like resume writing and technical interviewing workshops and seminars for students to meet industry professionals. DUCS also hosts the Department of Computer Science Annual Student Showcase, that highlight student projects created through the academic year.

For more information about DUCS, please contact Susan Bolton at susan@cs.du.edu.

Denver University Game Developers Club (DUGDs)

DUGDs are for any student interested in developing games. The club looks at games from a critical and theoretical perspective to help the students learn how to design and develop better games. DUGDs also hosts workshops on how to program games in current platforms and bring in industry members to talk about the game development industry. DUGDs also plays an active role in organizing Game Jam at DU each year.
