Wayne State IEEE chapter to host 2017 Student Leadership Conference

The Wayne State chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers will be hosting the 2017 Student Leadership Conference from March 16 to18 at the Troy Community Center. Registration is $50 for IEEE student members and $80 for non-members.

“The 2017 Student Leadership Conference will be a remarkable event for engineering students, focusing on leadership and professional development,” said Wayne State IEEE chair Christopher Lopez. “All students planning to attend are bound to have a fantastic experience.”

The conference will feature a coding competition, an interview competition, a career fair and luncheon with professionals. The Wayne State IEEE Chapter will also be introducing a pitch competition — something new to the SLC program. The pitch competition will challenge students to come up with an idea and how to develop it, presenting their pitch to industry professionals.

The Wayne State IEEE chapter was presented with the Outstanding Student Branch award at the IEEE Southeastern Michigan fall conference in December for their high level of activity, including planning business tours, professional development events and the SLC.

IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. For more information on the Wayne State student branch, visit their website.
