IIUM IEEE Student Branch (SB) is an exciting platform for students to gain valuable outside-classroom and volunteering experience. The group operates under the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers(IEEE)’s umbrella; which is undoubtedly the most reputed global body for electronic and electrical engineers all over the world. Here, we work side by side to promote the vision of “Advancing technology for humanity” and undertake several community-service projects and technical programs in IIUM.
We have been blessed with a new line up for the IIUM IEEE SB this year. On behalf of the team, I would like to recognize the successful organization of our activities in past years leads by the previous IIUM SB Counsellors. IIUM IEEE SB appears to be the link that bridges the professionals in the industry and the university undergraduates. It is with great pleasure to mention that IIUM SB is privileged to be a part of this mission that encourage interactivity between industries, academic, and students.
This year, we plan to organize many activities including Technical Talks & Training, Social activities, Field Visits, and Humanitarian Outreach. Kudos, to the organizing committee members for their extremely hard work in preparing this year’s activities. I do hope you can join us and enjoy the benefits that these activities offer. Yet, the target is still far. We are half past the way to it and a longer distance to travel. So, I wish the student branch good luck to accomplish the goals successfully during the year ahead.
“And do not go about in the land exultingly, for you cannot cut through the earth nor reach the mountains in height.” (Al Isra:37). To put this into the perspective, IIUM IEEE SB is a good training ground for students to build their leadership character by nurturing engineering knowledge, ethics, and virtue in IIUM. Together, let’s lead the way in fostering technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity (ummah).
