IEEE Memphis was awarded 2nd place in the programming competition at SoutheastCon 2011.

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest professional organization for the advancement of technology.  The IEEE student chapter at the University of Memphis is a great way for any up and coming engineers (or students) to get hands on experience in robotics, electronics, and programming. It is also a great way to network with the professional community.

The IEEE chapter actively participates in a robotics competition annually. Each year, from the ground up, the chapter builds a robot to complete certain tasks for the competition. SoutheastCon (http://www.southeastcon2012.org) also gives students the opportunity to participate in other competitions including programming, ethics, website design, and t-shirt design (graphic design).

To participate and attend SoutheastCon students must be members of IEEE. However, any student may come out to any IEEE events at the University of Memphis; some of which include robot builds, seminars, and social events.  IEEE is an active student organization that welcomes students of all disciplines and majors.
