ECU IEEE Student Organization
Message and photo by IEEE student organization faculty advisor Dr. Jason Yao:
"(ECU) engineering students Tyree Parker and Michael Kennedy and I attended an IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, www.ieee.org) Region 3 Conference (http://ewh.ieee.org/reg/3/southeastcon2014/) March 13-16. As a newly rejuvenated student branch in last October, they participated in the website competition (http://ieee.ecu.edu), the IEEE Leadership Training and other technical workshops, and networked with potential employers and hundreds of peer Electrical and Computer Engineering students from ~30 universities.
The ECU IEEE student branch is building an unmanned aerial vehicle to participate a competition sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory in August (http://www.ohiouasconference.com/pages/competition.html)."
