IEEE Student Branch Prairie View A&M University



It was Wednesday, February 13, 2019, when the IEEE University Relations TX express made a visit to PVAMU IEEE Student Branch bring food, gifts and more important information on all of the IEEE resources available to national student branch members. IEEE Senior University Partnership Program Manager Kristen MacCartney and HOU Sec. Vice-Chair, Christopher Sanderson, were excited to be visiting the campus and facilitating the importance of college, career, and professional development.

The students were very surprised to learn about all of the great resources and opportunities that they have access to as IEEE Student Branch members. One of the great research tools available to them through PVAMU is IEEE Explorer Library. The IEEE Xplore® digital library provides access to IEEE journals, transactions, letters, magazines and conference proceedings, IET journals and conference proceedings, IEEE Standards, and IEEE educational courses. They thought it was great to discover the additional information to help with their degree program and the additional training resources on the latest educational courses available to expand their job search opportunities.

The word search game shared by Kristen really helps bring the information to life and all of the different possibilities it can be used by the students and faculty.  Special thanks to Dr. Cui for coordinating and sponsoring our visit to Prairie View A&M University College of Engineering.
