Learners program

Yet another time ACM NUST brought back home its spearhead project, the ACM Learners Program. You no longer needed to find a person of common interest anymore, as we took up the task t222o connect you with the professionals themselves. So, if you’ve wanted to be paid for doing what you loved to do, applying right away would’ve been the right thing to do! It was an opportunity to be your own boss. Learning to be a freelancer with an ACM mentor has helped people through all the challenges they would have faced as a beginner. We provided assistance in the following fields:
App development, web development, graphic designing, marketing/managerial skills.

Game Development

Cellphones have clearly over took personal computers as the most used platform for gaming. With android and iOS gaming on the rise NUST ACM Student Chapter brought you “Game Development Workshop”, which was going to teach the aspirants all that was required to get started with game development. Learning the basics of Unity and getting started with one of the most interesting things you would come across in the years to come had never been so hands on..

WHY COMMUNITY SERVICE?

With societies all around NUST working to organize events and programs engaging students in all sorts of activities, less importance is given to the fact that there is a big proportion of students who struggle academically and as a result, emotionally, to get through with their degrees and have a hard time maintaining academic stability. ASWAN is a one-of-a-kind initiative taken by ACM Student Chapter NUST, to be of service to these individuals who are desperately in need of hope, motivation and advice on how to build their lives and careers being in the top higher educational institution of Pakistan - NUST. ASWAN believes community service extends beyond the boundaries of monetary and tangible support, and that academic welfare of the students is an equally important issue that our education system faces.

MOTIVATION

ASWAN feels its responsibility to provide every possible help required by the deserving students. ASWAN promotes Peer to peer mentorship programs where individual students get dedicated academic supervision from their seniors; who have a chance to hone their teaching skills side by side. ASWAN arranges movies for a cause, book donation drives, help desks for students and other activities with the purpose of helping the students who are lagging behind in studies and are ambitious to move themselves to success.
