MARK YOUR CALENDARS

IEEE BCIT will be having our monthly branch meeting on Wednesday, November 8th at 2:30pm in SW3-2745. The branch is always looking for ways to grow and recruit new members. If you are interested in getting involved, come and say hi!

The IEEE BCIT Student Branch wants more students to receive the benefits of a paid IEEE student member. Some of these benefits include:

  • Access to IEEE’s databases of electrical engineering publications
  • Eligibility for scholarships and awards
  • Invitations to networking and social events outside of our student branch
  • An @ieee.org email alias with ad-free Gmail and 20GB of shared Google storage
  • Discounts on many products and services outside the IEEE
  • Reduced prices on certain student branch events
  • Ability to vote for student branch executives
  • Eligibility to run for student branch executive positions

However, we realize that money can be scarce when you’re a student. So our student branch has decided to reimburse $20 CAD to anyone who signs up for a student membership . This brings down the cost by nearly 50%. To get your reimbursement, just follow these steps:

  1. Email us an electronic copy of your proof of payment for the membership to exec@ieeebcit.org
  2. Indicate your name and IEEE membership number in the email
  3. Must be currently BCIT student

We will then contact you to finalize the reimbursement. To be eligible, you must have paid for your membership on or after November 1, 2015.

When you sign up for a membership, be sure to list Johnson Huang (our club Chair) as the person who referred you. His IEEE number is 92615181.

We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to receive all the benefits of a paid student membership.

If you are missing any parts from a kit assembled by the IEEE BCIT Student Branch, please meet us this Monday or Tuesday at 5:30 PM outside the digital lab (SW1 3055). You can come on either day, whichever works best for you.
