About this Group

Group Description
The student chapter of IEEE at the U of M is here to benefit students in several ways. IEEE provides students with the opportunity to network with professional contacts through presentations by engineering firms, and an annual jobfair attended by many prominent companies. IEEE also provides tutorials on subjects that pertain directly to all types of engineering courses. Lastly, social events are frequently held to help students network with each other.
Group's principal activities, events, or programs:
- We have monthly meetings where engineers from Industry will discuss various topics. - We organize the spring IEEE/CSE Career Fair. - We also have various social events throughout the semester (i.e. ice cream socials, soldering & desoldering tutorials, etc.)
How this group's activities benefit the University community:
Our monthly meetings allow students to meet and question professional engineers currently in the field. Our career fair is a great opportunity for students to get internships and even full time jobs after graduation.
How this group fits into its categories:
Academic & Educational: We have an internal network of 6-8 computers and an EE lab bench with oscilloscopes, multimeters, power supplies, etc. We have group projects that promote hands on use of the skills engineering skills learned through classes.
