IEEE CHAPTER ENGINEERS SUCCESSES
Under the leadership of electrical engineering student Brent Looney, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) chapter provided tutoring for students across campus, organized a new chapter of Women in Engineering, and hosted a career seminar in collaboration with the Asheville chapter of the Society of Women Engineers.
At Western Carolina University, you will be able to participate in student chapters of national engineering societies. Activities include meetings, guest speakers, trips, competitions, service projects, leadership opportunities, scholarships, networking, career guidance and more!
