Recipient of an IEEE Award12th September 2013
I am the recipient of a prestigious "Region 8 IEEE Outstanding Branch Counselor and Advisor Award" for my continued support of the University of Southampton's fantastic IEEE Student Branch.
Southampton's IEEE Student Branch
The IEEE grant these annual awards to approximately 10 outstanding individuals around the world who, through their work as Counselors and Advisors, exemplify the Institute's commitment to the educational, personal, professional, and technical development of students in IEEE related fields of interest [source: IEEE, 2013].
I have a very strong attachment to the University's IEEE Student Branch, having served on its committee in one form or another for nearly a decade. The student-run branch put on a fantastic and varied programme each year, and have gone from strength to strength since the branch was founded. An example of this can be seen by the other awards that the branch recently won.
