Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers University of Toronto Student Branch (IEEE UofT )

What is IEEE?
IEEE Stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. You might have used IEEE Citation Style for your essay papers. In fact, IEEE is world’s largest professional organization. IEEE is responsible for setting Industry Standards, hosting conferences and publishing research journal papers. There are currently 420,000+ members from 160 countries.

IEEE UofT Student Branch:
IEEE UofT has been serving students in the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering for more than 50 years. Here at UofT, our Student Branch provides technical and professional development opportunities in computer engineering, electronics engineering, and power/energy. We do so by helping students:
- expand their professional and industry knowledge
- improve their technical knowledge and skills
- explore various career path
- establish professional connections.

Annual Flagship Events:
- Technical Interview Workshop: Every September, we invite in engineers from software, hardware, and energy companies such as Google, Amazon, AMD, and HydroOne to help students prepare for technical interviews by conducting an interview workshop and providing mock interview opportunities. Students can also network with the engineers and ask about intern/full-time recruitment opportunities.
- Hardware Hackathon: Every spring, we invite in 100+ students from across Ontario, from beginner to veteran hackers, to bring their electronics ideas to reality at our hardware hackathon. We provide industry mentors, UofT lab spaces, informative workshops, and all the hardware needed for the hacking. Students have the opportunity to demo their creations to our industry partners at the final showcase.
- Hello, Con! (computer science conference: Every spring, we invite in 20+ speakers from the industry and academic to give lightning talks about anything programming: from personal projects, industry trends, technical advancement, to personal stories and career paths in computer science. Students also have the opportunity to chat and network with the speakers.
- Grad Talks: Every fall, we invite in professors from UofT’s ECE department to chat with students about their research and provide information about summer research or grad school opportunities with them.
Industry tours: We organize tours to software, hardware, and power/energy companies to provide students with opportunities to experience how it’s like to work there.
- IEEE Day: We organize a networking event with IEEE members in the industry and academic on IEEE Day every year.

Additional events:
- Computer-related: IEEExtreme Programming Competition, Machine Learning speaker series, Virtual Reality talk series, Android Development Workshop, Resume workshop, Software Testing workshop + competition, etc.
- Electronics-related: Hardware Certification Workshop, Embedded Systems Design Program, etc.
- Power-related: Energy Case Competition, Energy Talks, etc.
