IEEE Student Branches provide an opportunity for student members to begin networking in their areas of interest and future profession. There are over 3,000 IEEE Student Branches in over 100 countries, globally. Amongst those branches, from 2014 onwards, our IEEE Student Branch is very much active. We have now about 120 student volunteers in this chapter.
Presently, the Student Branch coordinator is Prof. Vijina K, Asst. Prof., Dept of EEE,
An IAS Society also associated with IEEE branch here under the department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering. The Student Branch with branch code STB12941 has done many programs and workshops to improve the technological skills of students. These events also work as a platform for students to express their ideas and share their knowledge.
The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering operates an IAS (Industry Application Society) Chapter in the college as a subsidiary of IEEE Student Branch Chapter. This chapter is a valuable professional connect between industry and academics and it offers the following benefits to our students:
The IAS Students Branch Chapter, Sree Buddha College of Engineering (IAS SBC SBCE) was inaugurated on 18th February 2015 with 17 student members from PG and 9 faculty members. Dr. Tomy Sebastian (President, IEEE Industrial Application Society, Director of Motor Drive Systems, Halla Mechatronics) inaugurated the chapter. Mr. Srikanth Vasudevanpillai (IEEE-IAS Chapter and Membership Development Vice-Chair, Area Chair, Student Branch Chapter, Region 10, Asia West) felicitated the event. Prof. C .Asokan, Head of the department, EEE, SBCE presided over the gathering.
The activities of this IAS Chapter were always inspiring. Soon after the inauguration, an industrial visit to Kerala Electrical & Allied Engineering Company Ltd (KEL) was organized for its members and a tour to Athirapally waterfalls. Due to the active involvement of the student members of this Chapter, 8 students of M-tech (2014-16 Batch) got an opportunity to attend an international conference in U.S.A. funded by the IAS Society.
