1ST IEEE Iberian Student Branch Congress

The 1st IEEE Iberian Student Branch Congress was born from an initiative between the Instituto Superior Técnico and the Instituto Politécnico de Castelo Branco’s Student Branches, with the aim of having together, for the first time in IEEE history, all of the IEEE student members from Portugal and Spain, as well as other students and guests from other IEEE Region 8 countries (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Russia). At this congress, there will be around 20 Iberian Student Branches, represented by more than 60 delegates, that get together to share experiences, develop new skills, socialize, interact with the industry and discuss prominent issues of the various areas of engineering and management.

Continuing Education

In the IEEE, education occurs at many levels.  As a learner you have access to IEEE short courses at conferences and Section meetings, society education offerings, university and corporate partner programs, certificate programs, speakers, consultants, on-line learning resources, print materials and conferences. Many of these IEEE education experiences offer Continuing Education Units (CEU) and Professional Development Hours (PDH).
