To understand what IEEE Helwan student branch is, let’s take a look at the structure of the main organization pyramid.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE, was found in 1884; located in the USA and it is a non-profit organization that aims for technological innovation. There are more than 430,000 IEEE members in more than 160 countries. The IEEE publishes a third of the world’s technical literature in electrical engineering, computer science, and electronics and is a leading developer of international standards that underpin many of today’s telecommunications, information technology, and power generation products and services. Obviously, the organization couldn’t cover the whole world without dividing it through regions; the organization made 10 regions, region 8 covers Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
IEEE Region 8
The IEEE REGION 8 believes in -Inclusiveness – Embracing diversity of Region 8 members and their careers. Respecting each other’s values with honesty and transparency. -Networking – Creating an engaged, interactive community of technical professionals from both industry and academic sectors -Professionalism – Maintaining the highest level of professional and ethical standards. -Technical Excellence – Disseminating high quality scientific and technical information in a timely, equitable, and objective manner. -Volunteerism – The driving force of Region 8 Technical Activities In each region, there are many sections that run under its management, for example, IEEE Egypt Section that covers the geographical area of the Arab Republic of Egypt and was established on September 8, 1955, as the 2nd IEEE section outside the US. IEEE Egypt Section consists of 3 main entities: – Student Activities: 50+ affiliated IEEE student branches in different Egyptian universities. – Affinity Groups: — IEEE Young Professionals (YP) Egypt — IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Egypt – Technical Activities: concentrated in the so-called Society Chapters
IEEE Helwan Student Branch
IEEE Helwan Student branch is the 3rd created branch in Egypt, and it was the first student organization found in Helwan University in 2001.
It has three Technical chapters called RAS (Robotics and automation society) Chapter, PES (Power and energy society) Chapter, and ComSoc (Communication society) Chapter and one affinity group known as WIE(Women in Engineering) affinity group.
It offer a lot of opportunities for all university students and school students such as technical & non Technical courses, Workshops, Site visits, Seminars, and Competitions.
IEEE Helwan SB was awarded many worldwide competitions. and every year we achieve more and more.
