Student Branches can form Technical Branch Chapters, which are related to an IEEE Society. So for example a Branch might form a Computer Society Chapter or a Robotics and Automation Society Chapter. This might provide some advantages in organizing your branch, for example if you want to expand branch activities to multiple faculties. Also, Societies may offer different kinds of support for student branch chapters. A branch chapter can be a good contact point with the IEEE societies – for technically oriented events, you might be able to get support from the societies easier if you are organized in a chapter. In order to form a Student Branch Chapter it is necessary to have (or form) an IEEE Student Branch.
Benefits of forming an IEEE Student Branch Chapter
- Expanding Branch activities to multiple faculties at the University.
- Connecting with the industry and experienced people worldwide.
- Inviting outstanding speakers from the Distinguished Lecturer Program.
- Getting Special Courses from specialized and experienced people in the society.
- Getting the chance to participate in the Student Competitions related to society.
- Having the chance to win Awards from IEEE societies.
- Receiving Specialized magazines from the IEEE societies.
- Having a special conferences discount for IEEE conferences around the world.
- Competing other students to get Scholarships funded by IEEE societies.
- Receiving more funds and money to facilitate your events and activities.
- A SB Chapter can be a good contact point with the IEEE societies – for technically oriented events.
- Professional Development tools and materials for your SB chapter.
- Peer to Peer networking in your technical domain of interest and exclusive resources.
What about Joint Student Branch Chapters?
A Joint Student Branch Chapter is comprising the members of more than one Society. Submit your Student Branch Chapter petition selecting more than one (1) Societies in order to establish a Joint Student Branch Chapter. The petition shall contain at least six (6) signatures in total and each Society involved shall be represented by at least three (3) signatures. An example of a Joint Student Branch Chapter can be from sister societies like Power and Energy Society with Industry Applications Society, or/and Communications Society with Signal Processing Society.
