Benefits a Student Branch
An IEEE Student Branch gives students a community of peers, and a connection to faculty and industry professionals who drive innovation in countless technical fields. Student involvement in Branch activities, whether special projects, social and technical meetings, outreach programs, conferences, local Section or Regional opportunities, etc. can help develop a record of accomplishment and capabilities beyond the norm.
IEEE Student Branch on the basis of Lipetsk State Technical University (LSTU) was created in May 2020.
There are only a few IEEE student divisions in Russia in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Tomsk. LSTU has strong scientific and industrial connections with many nearby scientific institutions and industrial partners. The Lipetsk branch can also admit students from other universities. The new Student Branch based on LSTU will help the students of the region develop cooperation between science and industry, create and support initiatives within the framework of international scientific and practical conferences and meetings.
