A Journey of Innovation and Excellence: The History of Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology IEEE Student Branch

On March 31, 2021, a new chapter in the history of Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology (SIT) began with the inauguration of the IEEE Student Branch. This momentous occasion marked the birth of a dynamic community dedicated to fostering technological advancements and nurturing young minds in the world of engineering and technology.

In its inaugural year, the IEEE Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology Student Branch initiated several pioneering efforts. The first society to be inaugurated was the Power and Energy Society (PES), setting the stage for a host of innovative endeavors. Soon after, the Computer and Intelligence Society (CIS) and Computer Society (CS) societies were also launched, enriching the branch’s diversity and breadth of expertise.

Throughout its journey, the IEEE Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology Student Branch has been a hub of activity, organizing a multitude of events that have left an indelible mark. Some of these include the highly acclaimed WARROS’21, Tech Siesta, Kalaicharal, Techno Fest, Dynamic Programming competitions, and the exhilarating Xtreme event. The IEEE Day Carnival, Forby Series, and many other initiatives have added to the branch’s vibrant tapestry of activities. Forby series is a unique initiative undertaken by the student where the event focuses on the concept of “For the student by the student”   # Onlearning where the students teach their friends on their expert domain

Leadership and mentorship have played pivotal roles in shaping the IEEE Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology Student Branch. Dr. Saritha G, from the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, was chosen as the SB Counsellor, providing invaluable guidance and support. Monish K was selected as the first Student Branch Chairman, entrusted with the responsibility of overseeing the branch’s activities. The branch expanded its leadership with Mrs. R. Prabavathi being selected as the Scope Member, contributing to the strategic growth and development of the IEEE SB SSIT. In the year 2022-2023, Mr. Vinish S, from the Department of Information Technology, took up the mantle as Chairman, ushering in a new era of innovation and progress.

The year 2023 witnessed a significant milestone as 17 student ambassadors were introduced. These ambassadors worked tirelessly on global initiatives, reflecting the branch’s commitment to global engagement and collaboration. Among them, Aravindhan was appointed as the Technical Lead for the India Council, contributing to the dissemination of knowledge and ideas. The IEEE Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology Student Branch also made its mark on the regional and global stage. Arun was selected as the Madras Section Website Developer, showcasing the branch’s technical prowess. Furthermore, three students, Vinish, Harish Anantha Krishnan, and Avinash, were chosen as Region Ambassadors for IEEE TV, enhancing the branch’s visibility and influence. 

Notably, two students (Vinish , Mohamed Ashik Irfan ) from Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology volunteered for the IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Summit (IEEE WIE ILS) as website developers, underlining the branch’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. In a significant achievement, the IEEE Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology Student Branch secured funding from IEEE MGA, amounting to $774 in the year 2023, which has further empowered the branch’s initiatives and aspirations.

As we look back on the journey of the IEEE Sri Sai Ram Institute of Technology Student Branch, it’s evident that it has emerged as a dynamic force in the field of technology and engineering, leaving an indelible impact both locally and globally. With its commitment to innovation, inclusivity, and excellence, the branch continues to pave the way for future generations of engineers and technologists.
