As in the majority if universities, a lot of professors and PhDs are IEEE members. Most of them are from Montefiore's institute but also from other departments.
Some of them have accepted to share their IEEE experience with the students.
What is a student branch in such a big organization?
It is composed of IEEE student members who gather in an association to organize activities in the name of IEEE. It is the best way to get in touch with engineers from the professional environment but also to discover new engineering applications, to learn new skills, to practise english, etc.. It is also the opportunity to meet students from other student branches all around the world. Finally, it is the way to participate to soe untypical activities such as societies and laboratories visits, lectures but also a lot of fun activities.
