Welcome to the most significant and fun club you will ever be a part of. The IEEE Student Branch at BSU is a club primarily for electrical engineering and computer science majors but welcomes all STEM majors. The club’s main focus is ensuring the success of its members academically and professionally. The 2016-17 team has developed the following three part plan to do just that.
Members will work on engineering projects throughout the year to develop hands-on experience with the engineering process and to further solidify their knowledge of the subject matter. This year’s projects include a Midi Tesla Coil and a Marx Generator. The Tesla coil will provide experience with power and signals with some computer science.
The IEEE is the world’s largest professional network comprised of a variety of groups that is active in publications, conferences, and building technical communities. When looking for internships and employment it is not always what you know but who you know. The club will be putting on informational sessions from local companies and hosting conferences and panel discussions to help our members connect with the professionals that they want to work for or with someday.
The club wants to see that all of its members succeed not only after school but during school. As such, we have tutoring sessions once a month to help with undergraduate course material and homework. We are also putting on workshops for MATLAB, LtSpice and EAGLE once a month so members can become more familiar with the tools of the trade that they will be using as students and beyond.
If you would like to become a member of the club, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our first meeting will be this coming Monday, August 29th at 3 pm in Micron Engineering Center(MEC 114).
