When you become an IEEE Student Member through our student branch you receive this magazine in PDF. For €5 extra you receive IEEE Spectrum on paper at home. Below you can find a summary of the contents of the February 2014 edition.

You know code? You know mobile? You know IEEE? Well, let's see what you got!

We invite you to participate in this great new IEEE programming contest. It is the goal of this contest to provide IEEE members (and non-members) through the world with great mobile applications. We encourage you to build any kind of application that will benefit IEEE, scientific, technical or educational community in general.

As you may know, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an organisation focussed on stimulating research and innovation. Many research papers are published on IEEEXplore and IEEE organises many conferences to present new inventions. But not only doctoral students and researchers are driving the world of tomorrow. Also students can!

Are you ready to take the challenge? Participate in the IEEEXtreme Programming Competition 7.0 and gain eternal fame and glory!

This international competition is a 24h programming challenge in teams of a maximum of three students. The competition starts on Saturday the 26th of October and ends on Sunday the 27th of October. We provide you with the desired food and drinks, a place to sleep, and internet

So you thought technical skills make you a successful engineer? While technical skills are learned at university, equally important soft skills are not. Do not miss this exclusive chance to know which other traits you need to have in order to be successful in your future career.

We have invited Sean Rul, McKinsey consultant and Ghent alumnus, to talk about the soft skills engineers need in their professional career. Specifically, the speaker will talk about:

  • Tips and tricks for time management
  • Learning to work with different types of people
  • Communicating a (difficult) message
The lecture will take place on Wednesday the 30th of October at 19h in Aud. B, Plateau.

Do you have the moves to become an engineer? Come over and find it out at the IEEE opening activity. We invite you to join us for a fun and interesting evening.

Caeleste, an expert in high-end, high performance image sensors will reveal to us their latest project in an engaging presentation. Be prepared to meet version 2.0 of the human eye!

Join our XBox Kinect competition and experience the state-of-the-art camera technology for yourself!

Meet us on wednesday october 9th at 19u30 in EELAB, Technicum +2 and best of luck in competing for the first prize!

Each year on the first of October we celebrate IEEE day to commemorate the first time IEEE members met in 1884 in New York to share ideas about technology.

The IEEE Student Branch Gent would like to welcome you to its new website! Together with the new academic year a re-elected board is ready to present you both interesting technical and social-cultural events once again.

We hope you enjoy the new website and may also welcome you on one of our upcoming events!
