eKart Mechanical Project Night
Time has come to bring our ideas about the new eKart to reality! Join us to work on mainly mechanical aspects and think about possible solutions for future challenges. The goal remains to equip the kart with two motors, one on each rear wheel. This means we will have to split the rear axle, such that each wheel is powered separately. This, however, requires a complete transformation of the rear end of the kart and we therefore organise a project night to start this transformation. We have set a couple of tasks to be done during the project night:

    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!
