IEEE Student Branch The IEEE University of Southampton and ECS Women in Engineering Careers IEEE Region 8
IEEE University of Southampton Student Branch
The University of Southampton IEEE Student Branch is active in promoting the IEEE through exciting and informative events ranging from technical seminars to careers events as well as organising socials and site visits. We hope that these events help our members gain valuable knowledge and skills as well as being enjoyable.

The branch was formed in 2004 and is the 15th IEEE Student Branch in the UK, and the first in the UK to be Women in Engineering (WiE) affiliated. We appreciate any feedback and suggestions, as you make the branch what it is.

In 2015 - 2016 academic year, the IEEE Southampton Student Branch completed the formation of the IEEE Southampton Power & Energy Society and Photonics Society Student Chapters, under which distinguished lectures and professional events are hosted throughout the year on the topics of power engineering and opto-electronics, respectively. Check the events calendar for more details!

Committee Meetings

The committee holds regular meetings to discuss a wide variety of topics including future events, branch aims, progress, challenges and finances. If you have anything that you would like to be discussed in our next committee meeting, please email us.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a non-profit organisation, and is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology. There are more than 421,000 IEEE members in over 160 countries around the world. IEEE members are engineers, scientists and allied professionals whose technical interests are rooted in electrical and computer sciences, engineering and related disciplines.

The IEEE publishes nearly a third of the world's technical literature in electrical engineering, computer science and electronics. This includes about 180 journals, transactions and magazines and sponsors more than 1,600 conferences in 95 countries. IEEE journals are consistently among the most highly cited in electrical and electronics engineering, telecommunications and other technical fields.

The IEEE is a leading developer of international standards that underpin many of today's telecommunications, information technology and power generation products and services. Often the central source for standardisation in a broad range of emerging technologies, the IEEE Standards Association has a portfolio of some 1,100 active standards and more than 500 standards in development. This includes the prominent IEEE 802 standards for wireless networking.

The University of Southampton and ECS
University of Southampton -
The University of Southampton is in the top 1% of universities worldwide and has achieved consistently high scores for its teaching and learning activities. The University offers first-rate opportunities and facilities for study and research, and provides a stimulating working environment. The University currently has nearly 25,000 students and 5,000 staff based across several campuses in Southampton and Winchester.

The School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) was established in 1947 by Professor Eric Zepler, as the Department of Electronics, Telecommunications and Radio Engineering. Today, it is the UK's leading and most successful integrated departments of Electronics, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science. ECS is the first in the UK for the volume and quality of the research in electrical and electronics engineering and 100% of the Computer Science research impact is recognised as world-leading or internationally excellent.
