Orientation for Fereshers

Participants: 210

Date           : 22 / 08 / 14

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.






Googly Quiz

Googly quiz was an online quiz conducted by IEEE SB CET. It was conducted on the 29th of August, from 12 noon to 2pm, at the Computer center, MCA department, CET. The event was aimed to be continuation of the orientation of freshers to IEEE and its various sub- branches, in this case the IEEE Communication Society. The overwhelming participation of over 100 students made the event a grand success.


Googly quiz , as the name suggests, involved a set of questions for which the participants could search Google for the answers. Such a format not only guaranteed active participation from students but also kindled in them an interest to learn about new topics. The questions were given in the form of slides in Google Slides. Students were asked to write the answers in a crossword puzzle which was provided beforehand. Everyone was given a time limit of 30 minutes to complete the quiz. Each question was awarded one mark and the one with maximum marks bagged the first prize of free IEEE membership worth Rs.1500.

Through this event, we were able to reach out to the 1st years and give them an idea about what IEEE and its Communication Society do and how being well informed about latest technologies helps us as future engineers.
