Are you Up2Speed? IEEE will get you there!
The IEEE student chapter at Georgia Southern University has begun a new program this semester entitled “Up2Speed”. This program was designed to enable students to apply and develop their knowledge related to electrical engineering to get them Up2Speed so that they can make valuable contributions in the field of electrical and electronics engineering earlier in their academic career.
A student who goes through the 8-week program will have attended 6 educational and interactive workshops in addition to 2 professional encounters. Each interactive workshop focuses on one aspect of a certain technology or skill set. A professional encounter can involve a professor sharing their research, resume workshops, or company presentations.
This year workshops are led by Educational Director, Collin Daly. Collin has led workshops on basic circuitry, arduino use and programming, and diode implementation thus far. The remaining workshops are as follows: Professional Encounter, Solidworks Basics, and Other Resources for Electrical Engineers.
Collin Daly is a senior electrical engineering student at Georgia Southern. He is a member of the University Honors Program and is conducting undergraduate researching in the realm of optical networking and bandwidth forecasting with Dr. Rami Haddad. Collin is an active member with the Robotics Club, a former officer of both the IEEE and Robotics, a licensed radio amateur operator, and an avid electronic hobbyist. From programming to welding, Collin welcomes the opportunity to share what knowledge he has with others.
