A much awaited event, the orientation program for freshers occurred on the 22nd of August at the EC S7 Classroom. It had a whooping turnout of over 210 students from Electronics, Electrical and Computer Science Departments. The program aimed at an informal interaction with the students to give them a sneak peek on what IEEE as an organization works towards and the innumerable benefits it has to offer its members. The crowd was addressed by Kiran Rajmohan, SB Chairman who introduced them to the work of IEEE in the regional, state, national and international levels. He shared his experiences about the numerous opportunities the IEEE community had to offer him and the international conferences and contests he has been a part of. He emphasized that while IEEE has much to offer, it is up to the students to utilize the facilities properly.
While IEEE by and large is a technical organization, it has much to offer for aspiring managers and business gurus of tomorrow. This was put across by Aparna Sekhar, WIE Chair. She stressed on the importance of effective communication and good interpersonal skills when you are part of a team. These ideas also found an echo in the words of Pooja M, ComSoc Chair.
