With the career fair on September 30th and October 1st, it's probably a good idea to prepare yourself. IEEE will be holding a GBM where we talk about everything you need to know for the career fair: the "do"s and "don't"s, career fair attire, and how to build a good resume. The career fair is one of the most important events of the year and IEEE is here to make sure you make the most of it. This information session will be held in Low 4050 at 6:00PM on Wednesday, September 21st. Pizza and refreshments will be provided!
We are in the process of organizing a lab tour of RPI's "Lighting Enabled Systems & Applications" (LESA) - formerly known as the Smart Lighting Engineering Reserach Center. You'll get a chance to see the Smart Room and get more information on a lot of the research that's currently going on. You can find more information on LESA here.
We are planning on doing the tour the week of April 25th. We need to find a time that works for everyone, so we've created a When Is Good to make scheduling easier. If you're interested in the tour, check out this link and fill out what time is best for you.
On GM Day, the IEEE and EHC will be holding a joint projects workshop. These workshops teach students how to tackle their own electrical projects and provide the resources to do so. Examples of projects are C, GPIO, Serial, PWM, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi. Students can also learn useful electrical skills, such as soldering and advanced wiring.
The workshop will be hosted at 6:00PM on Wednesday, April 13, in the Mercer Lab on the 6th floor of the JEC.
Are you interested in a career in electric power? Would you like to learn more about the intersection of market operations, regulatory policy, and economic/technical analysis?
On April 6th, the RPI IEEE Student Club and the ECSE Department is proud to host a tour of the NYISO. The NYISO runs New York's electricity markets, performs long term reliability planning, and ensures all market participants are treated fairly. The tour is scheduled to start at 2 PM, and a bus will leave campus at 1:30 PM. The tour should last about an hour.
We'll tour the new $50M control center and see North America's largest video wall! Participants will learn more about internship & employment opportunities. If you're interested in attending, please contact email@example.com today.
The NYISO is a Homeland Security "Critical Energy Infrastructure" site and has some pretty serious security requirements. The tour is limited to 25 students and RPI must provide a list of names in advance so visitor badges can be prepared. RPI will provide a bus for transportation on April 6th.
*NOTE: Preference will be given to new IEEE Student Members! For just $32, you can become an IEEE student member (a nice resume item) and get the opportunity to network with engineering professionals around the country. Sign up now and you'll be at the top of the tour list. To sign up visit IEEE.com or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Enrollment in IEEE also comes with membership in the RPI IEEE Student Club.
Next Thursday, March 31st at 7 PM in DCC 236 we will hold a joint meeting with HKN on course selection. We plan on focusing on upper-level ECSE courses and concentrations, and will have some students as well as Professor Braunstein discuss course options. Additionally, some graduate school considerations will be discussed; if the interest is great enough we can also schedule something solely focusing on grad school. Food/drinks will be provided.
