IEEE UTAS - Ibra Student Branch Conducts IEEE Membership Campaign Online

The IEEE UTAS - Ibra Student Branch conducted the IEEE Membership Campaign last 25 May of 2021 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM through the MS Team platform. A total of 39 student prospects joined the event and most of them are from the Higher Diploma and Bachelor levels. This event aims to increase the awareness of our students on IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the world's largest technical group for Electrical and Electronics Engineers and practitioners, and to introduce the membership benefits that a student can obtain by acquiring an IEEE student membership.

Ms. Hibah Mahfoodh Khalifa Al-Hashmi, IEEE UTAS-Ibra Student Branch Chairman was the speaker of the event. She introduced the IEEE membership benefits and explained the advantage and access to journals and magazines, e-books, and other research articles once becoming an IEEE member. Aside from the professional publications available for members, she also mentioned the importance of professional networks and linkages.

Other benefits like career guidance, resume manager, and job opportunities were also discussed during the webinar. As a woman in the engineering field, Ms. Hibah also encouraged her fellow lady student to be part of the "Women in Engineering" group of IEEE, a special group particularly highlighting women and their achievements and providing support to enhance their skills. She also highlighted IEEE Communities like Smart Cities, Big Data, Smart Grid, IoT, etc., where the IEEE Student members are free to join. Those students who will join IEEE communities can get free access to Webinars, magazines, and other resource materials, which could help them in their project interests in the future.

Other part of the event was the historical review of the IEEE Oman section and sharing of the experiences of some professional members in various fields of specialization. The sharing was through a video presentation. IEEE UTAS - Ibra Student Branch also shared their achievements for this A.Y. which includes being the “Most Active Branch in Oman” for the year 2020. For the next academic year, Ibra Student Branch would be campaigning and wanted to strengthen their numbers. So that students can take advantage of all the benefits in preparation for their professional careers as engineers.

Before the webinar ends, students were encouraged to avail themselves of IEEE special discounts for student members and to grab the chance to be part of this prestigious organization.

The event was made possible through the efforts of the organizing committee that includes Dr. K.Shamganth, IEEE-Branch Counsellor, Mr. V. Loganathan, IEEE-ICT SB Professional member, Ms.K.Santoshi, IEEE-Professional member, Eng Dept, Mr.P.Ramesh, IEEE-Professional member, Mr. Syed Khaja Ahmeduddin Zakir, IEEE-Professional member, Engineering Department.
