Outstanding Student Branch

This award recognizes the outstanding work of IEEE Student Branches which encourage participation in extracurricular activities that further the development of the students as future engineers. Region 6 has two different Student Branch awards (large and small); a small Branch with fewer students cannot compete with the number of activities in a large Branch.

The Branch officers are usually chosen in early September when classes begin. Many officers leave the following June when they graduate. Therefore the activity period upon which they will be primarily judged is their school year from September up to the nomination submission due date which is May 15. If there are continuing projects from the previous Spring, the nomination form may include those projects.

These awards are to recognize large and small Student Branches which represent the IEEE and encourage participation in extracurricular activities that further the development of their members and fellow students as future engineers. Some of these activities are meetings in which faculty or outside lecturers are secured to share knowledge and experience about preparing for jobs after graduation. Other lectures might be on topics that are highly interesting to students such as electric vehicles, worldwide communications for internet, sensor technology, or biomedical applications. Occasional fun parties such as pizza, bowling, and hiking can help students bond with each other and relax from the pressure of their studies. Some Student Branches have dedicated rooms for their activities and they may stock food or beverages for their members.

The outstanding Student Branches take on research or development projects as a group. Often the Student Branch is the only means for engineering students to learn how to actually solder and construct working circuits. For example, some projects might be related to microprocessors and some might be building radios.

The nominations from the Student Branches are judged by

  • the number of meetings and activities
  • the number of students actively participating
  • the success in carrying out the objectives of the IEEE
  • innovations and creativity of their projects
