We also seek to provide awareness to the community. Activities will include but are not limited to: Student provided Technical Presentations and Demonstrations, essential computer/programming skills courses (i.e. Linux Administration, Scripting, etc.), specific computer topics courses (i.e. Network Analysis, Penetration Testing, etc.), internal and external technical challenges and competitions. We accept students from all backgrounds and concentrations.
Enactus is a worldwide organization that believes in investing in students who take entrepreneurial action to create a better world for us all. Here at PUPR, Enactus Poly is a multidisciplinary student organization focused on making livelihoods better in a social, economic and environmental way through the development of projects in different communities around Puerto Rico. Becoming a member in Enactus Poly will provide students an opportunity for leadership development, research, exposure and growth in a personal and professional capacity.
The concept behind Formula SAE is that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a student design team to develop a small Formula-style race car. The prototype race car is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The target marketing group for the race car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer. Each student team designs, builds and tests a prototype based on a series of rules, whose purpose is both ensuring on-track safety (the cars are driven by the students themselves) and promoting clever problem solving.
Ink & Code is a community of students interested in learning beyond technical programming. Together the students choose the best books to expand their knowledge and intuition in the area of programming and computers and strengthen their reading habits. Also, students with similar learning interests and knowledge can share their ideas, carry out projects, and extracurricular courses.
