Academic Year
IEEE at UC San Diego is the second largest IEEE Student Branch in the US. We are part of largest technical society in the world ( responsible for defining technical standards, hosting conferences to bring like minds together and providing access to leading research. We at the UC San Diego Branch try to give student the skills they will need to be better engineers. We host technical and professional workshops, social events, and K-12 outreach events. In addition to these, we host a variety of large, annual events such as HARD HACK, our 24 hour hardware hackathon, and ECE Reverse Career Fair, to name a few. Most companies look more for projects than they do for grades. To that end, we offer multiple projects students can participate in to hone their technical skills and stand out to employers. Our projects are split into two categories: quarterly and annual. Quarterly projects are beginner oriented and no experience is necessary to join them. Throughout the quarter there are project oriented technical workshops and mentors to help you in bring your idea to life. At the end of each quarter, teams compete in the showcase for the top spot. Our annual projects require more experience to join and compete against other schools at the end of each year. Our most popular project is Robocup Soccer, a team soccer playing robots that competes against other universities. Our other annual projects include a set of Supercomputing Projects, in collaboration with San Diego Supercomputing Center. Robocup and some supercomputing projects are continuous - we recruit spontaneously throughout the school year.
