Elevation to Senior Member Workshop — March 30

Interested in elevation to Senior Member? The Akron/Canton Section of IEEE will be hosting an Elevation to Senior Member workshop Saturday Morning, March 30, 2024 at the Center Ice Sports Complex, just south of the Akron Canton Airport. The workshop will be an opportunity to interview with prospective references to support your elevation to Senior Member.

If you have accrued ten or more years of experience and have shown significant performance over a period of at least five of those years it is likely that you meet the requirements. Further information regarding requirements may be found on the IEEE website at https://www.ieee.org/membership/senior/senior-requirements.html.

It will be necessary to draft an on-line application prior to the workshop. Please contact Bob Osterhout, Akron Section Professional Activities Chair, regarding an Akron/Canton Section nomination prior to submitting your application. The Section will arrange for references to be available for interviews.

For more information or to register for the event, please Contact Bob Osterhout, Akron Canton PACE Chair to be placed on the schedule.

University of Akron students looking for Co-op positions – can you help?

Students from The University of Akron’s Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology (EEET) program will be graduating and looking for employment in May. With the COVID pandemic, the process may be somewhat different for both employers and perspective employees this year. Students in our program are graduating with either Associate of Applied Science and Bachelor of Science degrees in EEET. Employers can post positions and review resumes on the university Handshake system.

If you have a position announcements for the program bulletin board or to share them electronically with students you can forward the information to Professor Andrew Milks P.E. at aem36@uakron.edu. The EEET programs are now part of the College of Engineering and Polymer Science and we are housed in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. More information about the EEET and other departmental programs can be found at https://www.uakron.edu/engineering/ece/.

Canton Engineer for A Day Program Needs Computer Company Sponsors

The Canton Joint Engineering Council (CJEC) is looking for computer related companies (employing computer engineers) located in the Canton, Ohio area to participate in an Engineer for a Day program which offers Senior High School students opportunities to spend part of a day with an engineer during Engineers Week in February. We find that there are more and more students interested in computer engineering but not many companies available to accommodate one or more students in this discipline. If you know of a company or someone who works for a company in the Canton area that hires computer engineers, please contact Brian Werner at brian.werner@timken.com. Thanks for any input.

Executive Committee Meeting (EXCOM)

The next ExCom meeting is scheduled for February 14.

ExCom meetings are typically held on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm at the Waterloo Restaurant in Akron, or on Zoom when necessary. Please contact Jim Dowey at jldowey@msn.com if you wish to participate. All members are welcome to attend.
