"The IEEE Student Branch of GEC Barton Hill Trivandrum has proudly made its mark on all realms of the IEEE community and beyond. With its increasing member strength, event number and quality, the SB showcases the spirit and determination of every volunteer, and every member who contributes to the development of the Student Branch. With a laudable reputation constructed throughout the global IEEE community, this Student Branch stands out in every aspect. It has always and continues to produce quality workshops, talks and industrial visits, staying true to mottos of the technical organization. Beyond the technical domain, the Student Branch's contributions through humanitarian activities via our IEEE SIGHT Chapter also promotes the vision of IEEE. It brings great pleasure to witness the stellar contributions put forth by each member. I am proud to be the Counselor of this Student Branch."
The IEEE Student Branch at Government Engineering College Barton Hill is dedicated to fostering a vibrant and engaging environment for its members. Through a well-rounded approach, the branch seeks to enrich the academic journey of its students by offering a diverse range of technical and non-technical activities. These encompass peer-to-peer mentoring, technical workshops, and informative talks aimed at enhancing technical proficiency and promoting STEM initiatives. Our objectives extend beyond the confines of the campus as we strive to bridge the gap between academia and industry through initiatives like the Student Transition Elevation Partnership (STEP) and Student Professional Awareness Activities (SPAA). We also endeavour to facilitate continuous growth among our Executive Committee Office Bearers by providing avenues for technical upskilling.
Furthermore, our commitment to community extends to humanitarian projects under the IEEE Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (SIGHT) Chapter. Our members actively participate in events organised by higher IEEE Organisational Units and organise Distinguished Lecture Programs to facilitate meaningful connections between students and industry experts. Through these collaborative efforts, industry partnerships, and a steadfast commitment to quality education, we aspire to provide our members with diverse experiences, project-based outcomes, global exposure, and opportunities for scholarships and awards. In doing so, we aim to empower the next generation of engineers and leaders.
