Grey Hat Group

We research all aspects of computer security, including network security and information assurance, and to share that information with the regional community. The group is organized by Institute of Technology students, but is open to all students with an interest in security.

Grey Hat Group identifies 5 primary areas of academic pursuit:

  • Technical and logical vulnerabilities associated with computer networks
  • Technical and logical vulnerabilites associated with artificial applications
  • Mechanical Security (Lockpicking)
  • Hardware hacking (applied robotics) 
  • Social Engineering

We meet in Cherry Parkes 206H (Information Assurance Lab) 12:30 - 1:30pm every Monday.

HuSCII Coding

We do all sorts of fun things like learning new technologies, going to hackathons, working on projects, and eating food.

IEEE Student Branch

We are the student chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. We promote engineering, technology and networking through events and hands on projects.

Student Engineers

The purpose of Student Engineers is to give students an opportunity to work on large software projects like location services, sensor technology and gaming design/development while employing modern business and software development techniques such as AGILE programming.

UX Group

We are a diverse collection of designers, programmers, researchers, and humble problem solvers working to meet the needs of end users. We create student opportunities through community involvement, scholarships, internships, and UX research and design.

Women in Computing Sciences (WiCS)

We are committed to developing a network of diverse students to support each other in our university endeavors and computing science careers.
