Established in the year 2003, University of Petroleum and Energy Studies emerged as Asia’s first Energy and Core Sector University offering industry focused specialized undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs in various fields. UPES is committed to maintaining high standards in providing the best quality of education and endeavours to be recognized as the ‘Nations Builders University’ with a vision of creating specialized professionals in the core industrial sectors that contribute to the economical growth of the country. Its primary goal is to develop domain specific and talented professionals who are ready to join the core industries by providing them proper resources they need to enhance their professional skills. UPES also provides industrial exposure by taking students to the industrial tours to show them how exactly the industries function and what the core sectors expect or demand from them. It has many student chapters and societies consisting of core committee members, and faculty sponsors who work together to create a healthy working environment for the students. UPES believes in providing opportunities to each and every one to showcase their talents in front of the world by carrying out different technical and non-technical competitions, fests and events as well as workshops and tutorials. Its mission is to improve the skill sets of the individuals and upgrade it to a level which will help them stand out from the rest and bring out the best in them.
The UPES ACM-W was found in April, 2015 with an aim to realize the dynamic image of women in the field of computers and information technology and to provide them with a platform to showcase their technical skills. We at UPES ACM-W try to follow in their steps to create a community where all are given equal opportunities and everyone works together in harmony. UPES ACM-W Student Chapter is reserved exclusively for women with an aim to highlight the fact that women are as competent as men in the field of technology. To achieve this, we organize various activities and events to bring out the programmer and genius within each and every individual. We strive to create a healthy environment for women that encourages them to step forward and showcase their talent. We endeavour to provide collective learning through our various activities and events. Our efforts together as a team have made us strong and each and every one of our members has worked very hard to reach where we are today. We still have a long way to go and we plan to continue working hard with determination and diligence to inspire more and more female students to strive for success.
Last year we successfully conducted ACM-W India Celebration of Women in Computing (AICWiC) 2016 which was a huge success. We organized several enthralling events and activities exclusively for women which received tremendous participation from women all across India. And we wish to continue the trend by conducting Regional Conference next year in February. Upes ACM-W was also honoured this year with the Runner-up award for Best Student Chapter Activities 2017.
