University of Leeds Student Branch triumphs at IEEE Awards

The hard work of The University of Leeds’ IEEE Student Branch has been recognised at the IEEE Annual Awards Ceremony.

The University of Leeds’ IEEE Student Branch was awarded the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' (IEEE) Exemplary Student Branch Award of 2020, and the Darrel Chong Student Activity Awards for hosting the 2nd IEEE UK & Ireland YP Postgraduate STEM Research Symposium.

The awards are based on activities delivered by the 2019-20 committee and stand for appreciation of the hard work and enthusiastic drive of the committee members. The 2nd IEEE UK & Ireland YP Postgraduate STEM Research Symposium was a single day event that provided opportunity to early STEM researchers, both professionals and students, to present their research, receive feedback and explore the possibilities of turning research into an enterprise. The symposium was hosted at the University of Leeds, and co-organised with the IEEE UK & Ireland Young Professionals.
