Biannually, the student activities committee of IEEE Region 8 organizes a Student Branch and GOLD (Graduates Of the Last Decade) Congress, where around 300 IEEE student branches members, gold members, women in engineering members and young engineering professionals from all over Region 8 (Europe, Asia and Africa) meet. Traditionally, this event is a melting pot of a variety of cultures and backgrounds, the perfect opportunity to share technical, social and professional experiences.
Previous editions of this congress were held in Istanbul (’98), Eindhoven (’00), Cairo (’02), Passau (’04), Paris (’06) and London (’08) as one of the biggest events in the world for young engineering professionals and students all aged less than 28 years. Region 8 Student Services encourages and supports local student branches to develop these activities, but also provides opportunities for the students branches to collaborate on bigger scale and exchange experience.
WIE is going to participate through the congress program and will have special workshops which are organized in pairs. The first of the paired workshops for WIE will be entitled “IEEE Women In Engineering, Importance and challenges” while the second one will be entitled “W(I)E are active!”.
In parallel to the Student Branch Congress, a Professional activities summit is organized on Saturday, August 7. For more information click here
