IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) with over 120,000 student members is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of society. It does so through its highly-cited publications, conferences, technology standards, professional and educational activities.
SRM AP became a member of the IEEE in November 2018 and has 500 student members already.
Agniswar Paul, chair of IEEE SRM AP student branch says, “We will be looking to offer our members numerous professional advantages over and above the curriculum and academic experience. These could be participation at regional conferences, workshops, competitions like student paper contests and even scholarships. Also, opportunities in project/design programs.”
A vast network of member organisations helps create many of these opportunities. IEEE has more than 417000 members in more than 160 countries, more than half of them outside the United States. Student members begin by connecting with local communities active in research and authorship and engaged in important conversations on current and relevant technical topics. Georgy Jose, a student of Chengannur College of Engineering won the third prize from the IEEE Coding Competition, later bagging a placement in an American multinational IT company UST GLOBAL.
“All SRM AP members of the IEEE will gain ample exposure, enough to work on Research Papers and get published in world-class journals. Students will also be mentored to work on ideas perfected by thousands of academicians across the globe. They will also get a chance to attend conferences of their choice in any part of the world depending on their experiences and academic track record”, says Agniswar.
The IEEE Chapter at SRM AP kick-started this semester with a promotional event “GAME OF CLUES” on August 21st.
Asian Consortium on Computational Materials Science – International Conference on Material Genome (ACCMS-ICMG)
The Asian Consortium on Computational Materials Science (ACCMS) was set up in 2000 in order to nurture and promote research and development activities in computational materials in Asian countries. ACCMS entered into the 16th year of existence and the conduct of 10 successful conferences and 12 general meetings of this virtual organization have boosted the computational materials research in the Asian region. In order to optimally utilize our resources and manpower, it is widely felt that we should have a ‘real’ organization to steer young researchers towards computational research. It is envisaged that the conduct of International Conference on Material Genome at SRM University, AP-Amaravati, will lay the foundation for an active center of ACCMS on campus.

24-hour event with loads of “getting to know” exercises and a fun competition to top it all.
We start with a founder’s speed dating event and end with a B-Plan pitching competition!
There’ll be food, goodies and loads of fun!
Winners get cash prizes and an experience worth cherishing.
