Welcome from Chair

A hearty welcome and thank you all for your participation in IEEE Dallas YP!

I’m very excited to be the IEEE Dallas YP Chair, and am looking forward to working with all of you and my fellow board members to continue our group’s success and impactful presence in the community.

We have many activities and events planned for this year, and encourage you to share your thoughts and feedback with us on the quality and variety of our programs.

With that, I’ll just end by saying that I hope to meet many of you in the upcoming few months, and hope your May is off to a great start!

UT Dallas Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS)

Do you have a background in engineering or computer science and an interest in helping university students with technical projects? Becoming involved in UT Dallas Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) is a great opportunity to connect with students and give back to the community.

EPICS is a class offered at UTD in which undergraduate students work in teams on real engineering projects for local non-profit organizations. UTD Engineer in Residence (EiR) is a student organization helping to pair up each EPICS team with a volunteer mentor each semester. Such a mentor would be required to attend a start-of-the-semester meeting with the EPICS program coordinator, and from there commit a minimum of 1-3 hours per week to provide technical guidance as needed for one student team that semester. UTD EiR is currently looking for volunteers for the Fall 2018 semester. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact Engineer in Residence at eir@utdallas.edu. If you represent a local organization and would like to have UTD EPICS work on one of your projects, please contact Andrea Turcatti at Turcatti@utdallas.edu.
