IEEE, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, is the world’s biggest technical professional organization, with the tagline “Advancing Technology for Humanity.” IEEE supports excellent scholarly scientific contribution and technology growth for social or communal goodwill. It is a global hub and gateway for electrical engineers, professors, undergraduate or graduate students and expert practitioners to share their knowledge through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, seminars and other educational activities.
IEEE now has about 419,000 members from all over 160 countries, with more than half of them being from outside the United States. IEEE maintains 3,422 student branches at colleges and institutions across the world.
In 2008, the IEEE BRACU SB was founded by a dynamic EB panel comprising undergraduate students and extremely motivated advisers. IEEE BRACU SB has had a long and arduous path to establish itself as one of the most remarkable and ominous branches in Region-10, Bangladesh Section, and beyond. It is one of Brac University’s most active and energetic student groups. The 2019-2020 and now the 2020-2021 sessions have been really thrilling for our branch, with so many possibilities and accomplishments, despite the global COVID-19 upheaval. The pandemic might slow down our regular lives at some point, but our energetic students didn’t fall behind. They became stronger than ever and retained their good works. Likewise, this is the second time, that the IEEE BRACU SB has won this international accolade. It would not have been possible without the Ex-Com’s positive energy and the student members’ unwavering commitment. The IEEE BRACU SB is determined to accomplish unexpected accomplishments under the exquisite guidance of the honoured branch counsellor, Prof AKM Abdul Malek Azad. The IEEE BRACU SB has become one of the most inspirational models among all other student branches within the Bangladesh section, as well as other international student branches, over the years.
