- Open Door at ASU: We participated in ASU’s signature event, where we introduced our organization to students and families.
- Navigating Careers in Electrical Engineering: We hosted a speaker panel comprising of recent graduates and industry professionals. It was an insightful session where they shared their experiences and insights about exploring career opportunities in electrical engineering.
- Dinner with Engineers: We organized a speed-dating type, a networking event where groups of students engaged in 10-minute conversations with 10-15 engineers from several different companies. We also arranged a raffle to give away 2 $50 gift cards for students who attended the event.
Overall, it’s been a year of growth and progress for the IEEE Student Branch at ASU, and we are excited to continue our journey in the future. We’re grateful for the opportunity given to us and the community who have made all our accomplishments possible.
