The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE offers its members access to published research journals and magazines to keep current with a diverse range of technical fields. Additionally, members have access to exclusive career resources, scholarships, networking opportunities, and much more.
The IEEE has student branches all over the world, mainly located in technical universities and institutions with engineering-related faculties. Queen’s University in Kingston is home to one such student branch, whose role is to enhance the educational experience of students pursuing Electrical Engineering and related disciplines. Through technical and professional events we aspire to increase opportunities of industrial exposure to students, and establish professional links between students, engineers and the society in which they co-exist.
