Students are a vital part of the IEEE. The Toronto Section supports students and their education through numerous scholarships and through the activities of the Student Branches of the IEEE at many educational institutions. Student involvement in the IEEE helps them bridge their education to the professional world.
The Section funds a program of scholarships to encourage IEEE related activities and to recognize student achievement. This program was started in the early 1980’s and now covers most Electrical Engineering programs offered in the Greater Toronto Area.
The following awards are currently available – see here for some of the winners.
