University of Windsor of IEEE YP, Student Congress and WiE at Summit in Toronto

University of Windsor IEEE Young Professionals, Women in Engineering, and Student Congress at IEEE ILS International Summit in Toronto 

It was a privilege for our Windsor students to attend this event, which has brought together engineers, scientists, business leaders, politicians, entrepreneurs, and many more professionals. It was awesome collaboration of all the affinity groups of IEEE Sections of Canada; including ones from Windsor (Women in Engineering, Young Professionals, and Student Branches). The summit has featured many inspiring keynotes, focusing on hot topics like artificial intelligence and machine learning. These keynotes have aided in the students’ knowledge and helped unlock their potential in these technical fields. It was really interesting to see various leading industries and universities exchange ideas on innovative topics by discussing them with all the students and professionals present in the event; which was facilitated with knowledge and empowerment.

The Windsor Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Canada has been recognized for its leadership and networking events.

The IEEE Windsor Section, led by University of Windsor researchers, received IEEE Canada’s Exemplary Section Award for small sectionsfor its 2017 activities, leadership, management and administration.

Esrafil Jedari, vice-chair, IEEE Windsor Section and UWindsor research assistant in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, said the section was recognized for hosting around 30 technical, professional and social events on campus; its large network of volunteers and growth in memberships; and organizing and hosting the 30th Annual Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE 2017).

The group has grown steadily since it branched out on its own as the 21stsection in Canada in 2014 after operating as a student branch for two years within the Southeastern Michigan Section. The majority of its 306 members — which includes industry from the Windsor-Essex region— are University of Windsor faculty and students. The Windsor Section has three technical joint chapters for six IEEE professional societies, a University Windsor student branch and two affinity groups: Young Professionals and Women in Engineering.

The Exemplary Section Awardis given annually in three categories: large IEEE sections with more than 1,500 members, medium sections with 501 to 1,500 members, and small sections with 500 or fewer members.The Windsor Section was recognized by the IEEE in 2016 as an Outstanding Section Membership Recruitment performer for doubling its membership.

IEEE Canada is the Canadian arm of the IEEE as well as the constituent society of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) for the technical fields of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering.
