IEEE Members Reach Out To Students

January 2012

IEEE DayDid you know that IEEE members all around the world like to reach out to students to share what it’s like to be an engineer? Members do this in many ways — speaking at a career fair at a high school, contributing to student competitions, arranging site visits at research labs or manufacturing facilities, and by being a mentor. Recently, IEEE celebrated its second annual IEEE Day, where technical professionals from around the globe celebrated the theme, “Empowering Members to Create the Future.” The day encouraged professionals and students to work together to explore engineering through fun activities, competitions, and other events. More than 100 celebrations took place around the world and information was shared through Facebook and other media too. From India to Brazil to Pakistan to the United Kingdom and the United States, the day brought together students and IEEE members – but this was just one day. IEEE members reach out to students 365 days a year!
