KU IEEE Chapter Shines at IEEE Region 5 Annual Meeting!

KU IEEE Makes a Splash at Region 5 Annual Meeting! This past weekend, April 13-14, 2024, the University of Kansas IEEE chapter made history by attending the IEEE Region 5 Annual Meeting in Springdale, Arkansas! This marks the first time in recent memory that our chapter has participated in this important regional event.

A Delegation of Excellence. A team of dedicated KU IEEE members, Aiham Alhmoud, Jimena Del Angel, Lily Bray, David Levy, and Manish Singh, represented our chapter with pride. They actively networked with fellow IEEE chapters from across Region 5, gaining valuable insights and connections.

Leadership Encounters. The conference provided a unique opportunity for our members to meet esteemed IEEE leaders, including President Thomas Coughlin and Region 5 South Area Chair Christopher Sanderson, SMIEEE, SMASQ. These interactions offered invaluable exposure to the broader IEEE landscape and its distinguished figures.

Competition Success. Our chapter participated in two competitions – Circuits Design and Ethics. The Circuits Design team impressed with their creation of an AM receiver and mixer. Meanwhile, our Ethics team showcased their problem-solving skills with a case study presentation, securing a commendable 4th place finish!

A Heartfelt Thank You. Special thanks go out to the IEEE Kansas City Section – Region 5 for their constant support and encouragement. We are particularly grateful to the Kansas City Section Treasurer, Italo Bett, for fostering our success throughout this journey. With this successful participation, the KU IEEE chapter is poised for continued growth and impactful contributions within the engineering community.
