Students Branches

Student Branches are IEEE entities within a college or university. Student members are typically studying electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science or other allied engineering fields. The branches operate autonomously, but receive support from the Section in the form of some funding and the assistance of some members. Please check the activity page for volunteering opportunities, the student paper contest and other resources that could help further your engineering career.
