Drexel IEEE holds a wide variety of events every year ranging from general body meetings, workshops, and also numerous professional development panels. Below are some examples of events we’ve held in previous years!
General Body Meetings
General body meetings (GBMs) are a great way to learn about how to get involved with Drexel IEEE and meet fellow IEEE members! There are usually one to two GBMs hosted every quarter and are open to all Drexel students!

DragonHacks is Drexel University’s 24 hour hardware-focused hackathon event hosted annually by Drexel University IEEE. We bring together the brightest minds of the world’s best schools to spend 24 hours to hours to create ground breaking new products from scratch!

This virtual workshop taught students how to use the basics of Python to create a Sudoku puzzle solver. The full event, as well as previous workshops, can be found at our YouTube page, located here!
ECE in 60 Minutes
Are you an ECE major and don’t really know anything much about it? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Drexel IEEE ran through what it means to be an ECE major in 60 minutes, covering topics like: “What can I minor in?”, “What are the concentrations?”, “What kind of research is out there?”, and much much more! The full webinar can be found here.
So You Want to Work In Computer Security?
For this event, we hosted a panel with Dr. Adam J. O’Donnel, an industry professional coming to discuss some of the nuances around computer security! Dr. O’Donnel works at Cisco and is also part of the ECE External Advisory Board, and we’re grateful that he took the time to join us!
Drexel IEEE Centennial
Drexel IEEE turned 100 years old! We celebrated with students, faculty, alumni, and professionals over dinner as we reflected over our past and looked to our future!
IEEE Philly Game Night
We also collaborate on some events with the Philadelphia IEEE section like we did for this fun night of games! These collaborations are a great way to learn more about continuing IEEE after college and network with the sectional branch!
Throughout the year, we also hold a few study sessions where our members can collaborate and study together!
IEEExASME Robot Rumble
This introductory level robotics workshop ran through the basic components of a robot in different modules. The workshop consisted of an instruction period followed by a SumoBots design and competition.
