UVU IEEE Student Chapter

A recent drive to recruit the number of IEEE student members needed has been successful with the just formed IEEE Student Branch of UVU. With Dr. A. Minaie (minaieaf@uvu.edu) as the Chapter Advisor, the Student Chapter becomes part of the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. More information can be found at: http://ieee.org. Students are invited to review the many benefits available for student members at: HERE including free training, a free student magazine Potentials, free technical TV programs (web streamed), and free software. A full year student membership in IEEE is $32. The UVU Chapter of UVU may ask for its own separate membership dues as required by the UVU Inter-Club Council.

The Utah Section of IEEE recently received the Best Section Award of Region 6 in the United States, serving more than 2,000 professionals in Utah. Each month there are many activities where engineers and technicians gather to socialize and discuss important developments in their disciplines. Find more information at: http://sites.ieee.org/utah/ Student members are invited to attend the Utah Section IEEE Christmas Dinner on Dec. 7th @ 6:00 PM at the University of Utah’s Commander’s House. There is a charge for dinner and RSVP is required. See the myIEEE Vtools link to make reservations.

The Computer Society of IEEE is one of the largest organizations within this international organization. The Computer Society publishes its own journals and magazines, many of them targeting specific disciplines within the computing arena. IT Professional magazine is one example. IEEE societies address specific interests of members within IEEE and often have their own discipline-specific events. A full year student membership in the IEEE Computer Society is $13.
