IEEE Student Branch of IIT Kharagpur seeks to enhance the learning experience of the student community on the IIT Kharagpur campus. The Student Branch focuses on conducting social and technical activities for students, and also encourages the students to take full advantage of the benefits of IEEE membership, including scholarships, competitions, and conference grants. The Student Branch also intends to provide opportunities for students to network with peers in other institutes, academicians, professionals, engineers, and scientists through the on campus IEEE Student Branch and the Local IEEE Section, thereby encouraging students to be a part of the global IEEE community.
In the year 2010, the IEEE Student Branch of IIT Kharagpur joined IEEE University Partnership Program (UPP), an elite group of 17 top engineering schools/universities worldwide. The partnership allows the Student Branch to avail additional resources and support, including help in networking with local, regional, and international IEEE groups.
