MAISS

Management Information Student Society is an organization that is tailored to the interests of students interested in Business & Technology. Our organization was established by a group of Business Information Management students in Fall 2010, and is an official UC Irvine organization as of January 3, 2011. Our club fosters long-standing relationships among peers and faculty within the Donald Bren School of ICS and Paul Merage School of Business. We strive on building a community for those that have a passion for business and technology. Not only do we aim to build a community and maintain relationships, but we also strive to provide our members with opportunities for career and academic development. We distinguish our organization from other organizations because we focus on both community and professionalism. Most other organizations focus on one, not both.

VGDC

The Video Game Development Club (VGDC) is dedicated to the buffing of portfolios, enhancing of skills, and connection to industry professionals. We always have a set of projects circulating to keep our members working on something to better their portfolios (a couple of which we will be showcasing at ICS Day!). Our officers run workshops, ranging from 3D art to programming to project management) weekly to help ease new members in and hone the skills of older members. We've set up events like Game Developer's Week (GDW), which was UCI's very own implementation of Game Developer's Conference (GDC). We pulled in speakers from the area, mainly from Obsidian and Blizzard, to give speeches that would normally be given at a conference such as GDC. We don't play games, we make them.
