Why form an IEEE Student Branch?

A Student Branch gives you the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow IEEE student members and engage with professional IEEE members locally. An active IEEE Student Branch can be one of the most positive elements at a college or university offering programs, activities, professional networking opportunities, special projects, et al. IEEE currently has Student Branches at thousands of universities and colleges in hundreds of countries throughout the world.


The first step in forming an IEEE Student Branch is to complete a Petition Form (3rd page of this packet). You will need to have faculty and department support, as well as signatures of at least 12 active IEEE Student Members. You will also need to adopt a Constitution (a sample is located at the end of this packet) which will assist with management of your Branch. The required information is indicated by an asterisk (*). For a simple view of the petition process, a workflow is provided on page 10.
