Enrich to Empower
The Turing Club was founded on the principle of “technology for all”. The idea was simple: to bring cutting edge technology and education to students in an engaging and accessible way by introducing them to open source. The students and faculty who were at the forefront of the club focused on new age tech that is misunderstood and not entirely accessible to the public such as: ethical hacking, AI, and more. The club’s founders focused on developing core methodologies to be a club that puts its students first and foremost. All events, seminars, and activities organized would be done by, for, and with the students in mind. Seeing the inadequacies in their landscape, The Turing Club’s founders aimed to bridge the gap between the industry and its prospective students, and these principles still reside at the heart of The Turing Club’s goals today.

December 2021 - The Open Source WorkshopThe Turing Club has always been rooted in an idea of technology being free and open to everyone which is embodied in the idea of Open Source.
