While focusing on the aggregate development of members, IEEE Computer Society Student Branch Chapter College of Engineering Chengannur has not slacked on its overall statistical improvement and has kept an avid supervision of activities aimed at member development.
The boost in memberships compared to previous can be attributed to the orientation sessions conducted by the sophomores for the freshers. A separate orientation class was arranged for the IEEE Computer Society SB Chapter members. The students were made aware about the history of IEEE Computer Society and the activities organized till date. Opportunities and scholarships provided by IEEE were also notified to them. An ice-breaking session was included to remove the chasm between seniors and juniors. The Chapter have got a very active and vibrant set of newbies whose presence is seen during all weekly meetings and events conducted. A lot of events were organized to ensure their participation so as to reduce their retention rate. The explicit statistics are as follows:
Total Membership: 195
Following are the various awards that we have secured over the years:
- 4x Best Student Branch Award
- 5 REM Scholars
- 2 Larry K Wilson Awardees
- 4 Outstanding Student Volunteer Awardees
- Best CS Chapter in Kerala
- Outstanding Student Chapter Award in India
With the aim of assisting members to pave their path towards achieving the scholarships and awards offered by the IEEE Computer Society, the student members were briefed about the awards and scholarships during the orientations and member development sessions. Members are also supported for REM scholarship in particular, which have yielded results in the past. Our SB boasts with a REM scholar last year and he is Vignesh Hari, Chairman of IEEE SB CEC.
