Professional And Educational Activities subCommittee (PEAsC)

PEAsC Mission

PEAsC’s mission is to develop non-technical skills programs (such as “Leadership Skills Training” or “Project Management”) in order to provide additional value to members, in particular to young engineers and students. To coordinate educational activities programs in Region 8 including pre-university education, university-level education, post-university (continuing) education and the promotion of public awareness of engineering, technology and other topics within IEEE’s Field of Interest. To recruit volunteers to implement professional and educational seminars and workshops in R8 and to train local Tutors (Trainers) for these activities.
