SUCCESSFUL EVENTS

STEM Outreach

“Leadership is not about the next election, it’s about the next generation,” said Simon Sinek, a British author and motivational speaker.

With the aim of inspiring young talents especially the female talents, IEEE USM Student Branch started STEM Outreach to expose the young ones regarding the latest technology and projects.

App Challenge USM

Ideas are easy, implementation is hard. This is why hackathons are effective as proving grounds of ideas that encourage participants to take risks that they would normally avoid.

With a goal of encouraging local university students to explore the world of technology through working with like-minded youths in a fun and competitive environment, the challenge was set out from the start to be a success.

WIE Grand Lauching

“To all the little girls, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity to pursue and achieve your own dreams,” said Hillary Clinton

With the aim of  understanding the needs of female students in the campus, IEEE USM SB WIE AG organised WIE Grand Launching to create awareness of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) career towards female students.
