ACT provides a wide range of clubs, societies and organizations to its students and alumni, some of them in cooperation with companies and agencies. Most of them are free of charge, some require a membership contribution to cover expenses (noted with an * below) like travelling, meals, software, etc., and a few provide certificates to their members (noted with an ∞ below).
Each organization and club meets regularly and is advised by a faculty member or a competent professional. A Clubs' Fair is hosted by all ACT student organizations at the beginning of each semester so students may become familiar with co-curricular offerings and sign up for clubs and activities which best suit their personal interests.
Below is the list of clubs and organizations at ACT:
