Student IEEE members seek support

Members pictured at the 2012 SAC event.@OhioStateECE students involved in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) chapters are already making an impact in 2015, but increased donors could help them go a lot further. 

Dr. Paul Berger serves as an advisor to both undergraduate and graduate branches of the OSU IEEE. He often highlights their activities and achievements via the IEEE Facebook page. He said students involved right now have really put a lot of heart into their work. The only limitation they face remains generating enough donations to do more.

Ohio State University was selected as the host location for the upcoming 2015 IEEE Student Activities ConferenceIt is scheduled for April 10 to 12 at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown.

OSU IEEE student branch members have organized the event, but continue seeking more corporate and private funds to ensure its operation and planning runs smoothly.

During SAC, members will host IEEE students from all universities in its Region 2, including Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Northern Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Student participants meet and engage in activities, such as leadership training, student paper competitions, robotics competitions and other competitive events.

The conference serves as an opportunity for IEEE members to meet, interact, and exchange ideas and network. The conference will include a career fair and students should come prepared to engage with potential employers and have resumes ready to hand out.

Even as SAC quickly approaches, IEEE co-president David Scherer said, it’s never too late for donors to step in to help financially at this LINK or learn more about it HERE.
