Extra-Curricular Activities

In addition to challenging course work, our students have opportunities to put their knowledge to the test. All of our students gain real world experience from experiential learning opportunities such as internships. Our students also volunteer in our community programs such as our Social Robotics Workshop and the Junior FIRST LEGO League Expo.
The department hosts various social activities, such as Talk Like a Pirate Day and Pi Day parties. Informatics is also home to the University’s Innovation in Informatics (in)3 Makerspace. Details can be found at http://in3.ninja/.
In and out of the classroom, our students are preparing to be information and innovation leaders. For more information, contact the INF undergraduate academic advisor at isug@albany.edu.

Innovation in Informatics is a makerspace, that is a physical location where people gather to share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network and build. Makers leverage just about any tool to build their idea, including: software, gadgets, circuit boards, sensors, duct tape, wearable computers and 3D printers. Primarily these are places for technological experimentation, hardware development, and idea prototyping.
