Our primary method in achieving our mission is by getting our members involved in our project curriculums. For all projects, we have info sessions at the beginning of every academic year and release applications around the same time.
Our OPS program is designed to provide hands-on foundational knowledge in the field of tech and hardware. We assume you know absolutely nothing, and build your knowledge from the ground up. Throughout the year, students will be challenged to complete 2-3 small projects per quarter that will allow you to apply the skills you have learned.
The micromouse project guides students through building their own autonomous, maze solving robot or “mouse”. Within this program, our leads teach you the fundamentals of a micromouse, explaining every step along the way, eventually reaching a point where you’ll design and print your own PCB, solder it all together, and program it to solve an unknown maze by itself. At the end of the year, students are invited to compete against each other to solve a maze as fast as possible.
The Pocket Racers project is a hands-on introduction to how computers see and react to the world around them. No prior experience is required; students will get a crash course in Raspberry Pis, motor control, computer vision, and elementary machine learning techniques by building a fully autonomous self-driving car using just a Raspberry Pi, some motors, and a camera.
DAV bridges the gap between hardware and software. We’ll be teaching you about digital logic concepts, digital signal processing techniques, and the FPGA design process. By the end of the year, we’ll create a device that can calculate and visualize the frequencies of audio signals using an FPGA. If you’re wondering what digital logic is all about, DAV is the project for you.
WRAP is an advanced project focused on wireless digital communications and RF circuits. WRAP teaches students a variety of circuits topics used in wireless transceiver design, including amplifiers, mixers, and oscillators. On the signal processing side, WRAP covers the fundamentals of digital communication, digital filtering, and other techniques used in real-world communication systems. As the year progresses, students use this knowledge to design, build, and test their own physical wireless transceivers.
For members who do not have time to dedicate a whole year for one of
our competition projects, this program is for you. IEEE holds a series
of workshops throughout the school year where anyone can participate
and learn about new skills and technologies. These projects are aimed
at teaching everyone, engineers and non-engineers, about common skills
in electrical engineering such as soldering, image processing,
prototyping, and electronics. To receive more information on upcoming
IEEE workshops, subscribe to our mailing list to receive our

SPI is a program dedicated to providing motivated students with the physical and intellectual resources they need to develop their ideal project. In this program, students are allowed to come up with their own project ideas, propose it the board, and possibly receive funding and guidance for the completion of the project.
