Student Organizations

Seidenberg student organizations are located on both the New York City and Westchester campuses. Students, both undergraduate and graduate, can network with other students and faculty, hear about internships and job opportunities, share research findings, and learn more about developments in exciting fields such as robotics, video games, graphic design, and cybersecurity.

Pace Computer Society (PCS) and Seidenberg Tech Collective (STC) are our two student-run clubs where you can meet new people, enjoy talks by guest speakers, and get free pizza.

If you have general questions about our clubs and organization, email us.

  • ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to advancing the arts, sciences, and applications of information technology. With a world-wide membership of 80,000, ACM functions as a locus for computing professionals and students working in the various fields of Information Technology.

    The Pace Computer Society is one of many Chapters of ACM. Through ACM we are able to bring many different opportunities to our members and help them learn and build interest in the design, development, languages, management, and applications of modern computing.

    When you join ACM you get access to many resources that you would not otherwise be able to find. You can read about current conferences and talk to professionals in the field, as well as with other students with similar interests. You will receive publications on many different computer subjects, have access to internship and job listings, participate in contests with cash prizes, and many other benefits. Joining ACM is one of the best things you can possibly do to push your career forward. Learn more about the benefits of becoming a member of ACM.

  • The National Cyber League is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in May 2011 to provide an ongoing virtual training ground for participants to develop, practice, and validate their cybersecurity knowledge and skills using next-generation high-fidelity simulation environments. Each semester the team trains twice a week and competes individually and as a team on NCL's capture the flag style competitions. Since there are challenges ranging from easy to hard, NCL is the perfect place for a student who is interested in cybersecurity, but hasn't had any exposure to it.

    For more information about the team's practice schedule and meeting location, get in touch on Discord.

  • PCS is our weekly student-run club that invite any and all Pace students to attend. PCS hosts industry-led speakers, tech related workshops, and much more throughout each semester.

  • Our mission is to build a community to foster and grow the next generation of cybersecurity talent at Pace through our weekly team practices for the Northeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (NECCDC) held annually, and the National Cyber League (NCL) held every semester. The organization aims to strengthen student skills in cybersecurity related competencies through hands on training.

    Students learn and build from each other from a variety of cybersecurity disciplines: Server administration, configuration, and hardening; scanning, enumeration and discovery; vulnerability and asset assessment; exploitation; incident response and recovery.

    Students showcase their skills and knowledge by competing against teams from other universities.
