  • NOTE: CLEON I SOFTENED THIS TO COMPETITIVE EDGE. Since we can’t document your statement at this time. Also India is booming. NOT SURE THE THIRD BULLET WORKS IN INDIA BECAUSE ALL STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS VIA THEIR GOVERNMENT CONSORTIUM AGREEMENT. Here’s Your original: Membership in IEEE, in and of itself, should improve employment opportunities dramatically. I worry that it doesn’t. But, if we are willing to look after the welfare of each other, employment opportunities will improve dramatically I’d like to get this message out that you can proudly wear your membership in IEEE knowing that it will improve you chances of getting and maintaining work in any of the various disciplines of electrical and computer engineering that you are interested in. CAN”T PROVE THIS In a downturn of the economy, which we have faced for the last 3 years, this is a measurable goal. It should be easy to determine if IEEE members have a lower unemployment rate that engineering practitioners in general. US CENTRIC

  • R10 Global Integrated Network of IEEE students 2008 Initiative R-10 GINI
  • GINI Time line
    • 2008: Few Pilot sections to be identified , start coordination activities and establish
    • HUBs
    • 2009: Addition of new sections-Expansion of Pilot projects

    • Network among peers – local and global- very little scope - extensively time consuming process
    • Benefits for a member is confined to the entity (SB) to which he or she belongs
    • Lacks lateral knowledge sharing process
    • Increase in inactive student branches
    • Difficult to tap new potential educational institutions, as no system exists
  • R10 Global Integrated Network of IEEE

  • With inputs from S. Gopakumar, SAC Kerala section
  • How to Start GINI in your section
    • Step 1
      • Select one student GINI representative from each SB
    • Step 2
      • Have a meeting of all GINI reps and SB counselors
      • Select section GINI committee office bearers
        • SAC to be the president of GINI committee
        • One counselor may be selected as VP
        • Student reps to be secretary, treasurer, web master,etc
  • Step 3
    • If no. of SBs are more than 10 or 20 and geographically distributed Hubs can be formed consisting of 5 to 10 SBs per hub
    • Hub teams may consist of Hub leader (counselor) and hub drivers to support (1 to 3)
  • Step 4
    • GINI committee may also include hub leaders/ hub drivers
    • Discuss issues facing the SBs
    • Identify active/ vibrant SBs as mentor SBs and allocate one inactive SB to be mentored by active SB
  • Step 5
    • Conduct periodic on line meeting – at least once per month with GINI reps
    • Periodicity of GINI EC can be more frequent
  • Step 6
    • Have face to face meeting once in 3 or 6 months
    • Have GINI organise section student congress/ hub level congress
    • Share ideas, benefit from learning from each other and collective thinking to resolve issues
  • Step 7
    • Keep track of reporting deadlines and ensure reporting by all SBs
    • Organize programs jointly within hub or invite other SBs in the same hub to participate
  • Step 8
    • Train a set of volunteers to give awareness sessions in new or inactive branches
    • Train new office bearers on how to run SBs etc
  • Membership in IEEE is a badge of distinction
    • Membership in IEEE gives you a competitive edge
    • Access to the source of information and intellectual property emphasizes the stature of the members of our societies
  • Help IEEE Help You by Taking an Active Role
    • Active members

      • Gain opportunities to learn skills not learned in academic courses or on the job.
      • Share knowledge to enhance their creativity
      • Gain access to individuals at all levels of the profession
      • Gain experience to help become the leaders of tomorrow -- locally and globally
    • WE have Loads of FUN in IEEE
  •
