IEEE VGEC STUDENT BRANCH

What is IEEE ?

  • IEEE, an association dedicated to advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefits of humanity, is the world's largest technical professional society. It is designed to serve professionals involved in all aspects of the electrical, electronics, computing fields and related areas of science and technology that underlie modern civilization.

Vision

  • "IEEE will be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere, and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions."

Mission

  • "IEEE's core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity."

Core Values

  • Trust: being a trusted and unbiased source of technical information, and forums, for technical dialog and collaboration.
  • Growth and nurturing: encouraging education as a fundamental activity of engineers, scientists, and technologists at all levels and at all times; ensuring a pipeline of students to preserve the profession.
  • Global community building: cultivating active, vibrant, and honest exchange among cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary global communities of technical professionals.
  • Partnership: promoting a culture of respect for the employee and volunteer, valuing contributions at all levels of the organization, investing in training and development to enhance capabilities, empowering individuals to make a positive difference, and building a membership organization based on a strong volunteer-staff partnership to serve the profession.
  • Service to humanity: leveraging science, technology, and engineering to benefit human welfare; promoting public awareness and understanding of the engineering profession.
  • Integrity in action: fostering a professional climate in which engineers and scientists continue to be respected for their exemplary ethical behavior and volunteerism.

IEEE VGEC Student Branch

  • IEEE VGEC Student Branch gives students the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow students, as well as faculty members and professionals in the various fields. An active IEEE Student Branch can be one of the most positive elements in a department offering programs in IEEE designated fields of Engineering such as electrical, electronics and communication, computer Science and others.

IEEE History

  • The IEEE formed in 1963 with the merger of the AIEE (American Institute of Electrical Engineers, formed in 1884), and the IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers, formed in 1912). From its earliest origins, the IEEE has: Advanced the theory and application of electro technology and allied sciences. Served as a catalyst for technological innovation. · Supported the needs of its members through a wide variety of programs and services. Through its members, the IEEE is a leading authority in technical areas ranging from computer engineering, biomedical technology and telecommunications, to electric power, aerospace and consumer electronics, among others. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is devoted to advancing the theory and application of electrical engineering, electronics, and computing.

IEEE Gujarat Section

  • The IEEE Gujarat Section is one of the 11 IEEE Sections in India which comes under the Asia-Pacific region, R10 of IEEE. It was formed on 15 August 1990. It is one of the most important section in the R10 Region. It is headquartered at Ahmedabad, a place known mainly for its business oriented people.

    IEEE activities started in Gujarat in 1988 from Baroda (now known as Vadodara), by the first IEEE Student Branch established at the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Technology & Engineering, M S University. The Vadodara sub-section was formed in the year 1988, which was later changed to the entity to Gujarat Sub-section. On 15th August 1990 the Vadodara Sub-section was then upgraded to a full fledged Section and take its place amongst the 300 sections worldwide spread out over 150 countries.

    The IEEE Gujarat University Student Branch was the next student branch unit established in 1994. The IEEE Gujarat Section was carved out from the IEEE Bombay Section mainly for logistic reasons.

    Gujarat Section was first brought to international attention in 1997 with the holding of a twin conference on’ Internet Security’ and EEE in the petroleum sector both downstream and upstream. This twin conference was held in the premises of the Institute of Reservoir Studies of the ONGC.
