Code Experts workshop for School Children

Code Experts 4.0, a six hours online programming competition which was organized by IEEE Student branch of University of Moratuwa collaborating with IEEE Computer society and Industry Application Society of University of Moratuwa. This competition was to school children who are currently studying in the university.

Prior to the competition, a workshop was organized for the purpose of helping the students to enhance their programming knowledge and algorithms. This was held on 25th of February 2017 at seminar room ENTC1 in Department of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering, University of Moratuwa.

More than eighty keen participants from schools around the country were gathered to university to improve their knowledge, mainly in the algorithmic aspect of the workshop. The workshop was conducted by well experienced and talented programmers of the university and it was a huge success with many positive feedbacks. Since Industry application society was involved in organizing the competition, IAS members actively volunteered in this workshop.

ENUMERO 3.0

The society chapters, IEEE Industry Application Society(IAS), Power and Energy Society (PES), IEEE Robotics Automation Society (RAS) and IEEE Computer Society (CS) under the IEEE Student Branch of University of Moratuwa, organized Enumero for the third consecutive year for the purpose of providing the undergraduates a favorable platform to build up their interaction with the above chapters thereby tightening up their cohesion with IEEE, which is currently the most reputed international body for engineering professionals from all nooks and corners of the world.

Enumero is a technical workshop which was organized with the utmost intention of enhancing the technological knowledge of the undergraduates, especially, updating them with current technological advances in the field of computer science, robotics and automation, power and energy sector and Industry applications. Moreover, it aimed at cultivating collaboration among the members of the IEEE UoM student branch and the students from the other student branches of the Sri Lankan section while improving the collaboration with Young professionals and Industry.

The session was conducted on 11th February 2017 from 8.30 a.m. to 4:30 PM at the ENTC1 hall of Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, the University of Moratuwa with a participation of over 80 members of other IEEE Student Branches and University of Moratuwa students.

The event consisted of two lectures, final year project demonstration and a gaming session. Lectures were conducted by two experienced lecturers of the University Dr. Peshala Jayasekara and Mr. Heminda Jayaminda regarding electronic modules and circuits which also received good feedback from the listeners.

Then the final year projects of the University of were demonstrated for the participants, which earned the interest of a majority. As the final session games were organized to improve the team building skills of the participants and to interact more with each other. Each group received different tasks to perform and the game flow was mainly based of circuit designing and building. This was to combine the technological skills equipped by the team members to achieve a common goal as a team.

Refreshments and lunch for the participants were provided by the student branch.

Enthusiastic undergraduates of student branches of UCSC, WUSL, SLITT, KDU, Uwa Wellassa, UoR, and UoP participated in the event. They actively participated in all sessions of the event expanding their horizon with members of other student branch members. Overall session was of a huge success and Student Branch Volunteers received many positive feedbacks about their excellent organizing skills. This was a valuable chance for all the society as they got a chance to present their work as a society to the members of different branches. That leads to a recognition of the society as well as a motivation to the other student branches to join had with the RAS, PES, IAS, and CS.
