The IEEE CUD Student Branch - What do we do?
The Student Branch of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers at Canadian University Dubai was established in 2016, driven by a dedicated team of students and faculty from the School of Engineering, Applied Science & Technology.
The Branch is organized by a volunteering student committee and a faculty member. Its purpose is to provide students with the opportunity to be actively involved in technological activities and events and be a part of a professional society; the IEEE.
The IEEE Student Branch can be one of the most positive elements of a college or university experience, offering various programs, activities, professional networking opportunities, special projects, etc.
