Young Professionals

The IEEE Young Professionals is an international community of innovative members and volunteers. Members of this community are interested in elevating their professional image, expanding their global network, connecting with peers locally and giving back to the community.

Chair – David Hantke
I earned my computer engineering degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2018 graduating with great distinction. Since then, I have been working with Calian Advanced Technologies as a hardware designer where I have been recognized as a creative problem solver.
Outside of work, I enjoy honing my presentation skills through Toastmasters and studying German as a second language. I am excited for this next step in my leadership journey by joining the IEEE North Saskatchewan Section YP committee as Chair.

Vice-chair – Graham Ncube

Hello everyone, my name is Graham Ncube, and I am the incoming Vice Chair of the IEEE North Saskatchewan Section Young Professionals. I have a passion for excellence and continuous improvement and am dedicated to making a positive impact in our community.

Before starting my current role as an Electrical EIT at March Consulting Associates Inc., I worked as a Project Manager at Schneider Electric. This experience helped me to hone my organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills.

I’m excited to develop my expertise in electrical engineering and contribute my strong work ethic as an asset to the young professionals group. I look forward to working with all of you and contributing to the success of our chapter.

Secretary – Reefayat Majumder
I’m the secretary for the IEEE North Saskatchewan Section Young Professionals. In 2019, I graduated with a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

As the chapter secretary, my primary role is to ensure that the chapter’s records and communication tasks are coordinated efficiently. I’m responsible for recording and distributing minutes, maintaining records, communicating with members and other IEEE chapters/sections, assisting in planning and executing events, and representing the chapter at IEEE meetings. I’m excited to contribute my skills and knowledge to the chapter and look forward to working with all of you.

Treasurer – Sayantan Sur
I have recently joined the IEEE North Saskatchewan Section Young Professional (YP) group committee as
a Treasurer. I have always been actively involved in professional volunteering activities and am really
looking forward to contributing to our technical community in my current role.
I am extremely privileged to be working alongside such a vibrant and dedicated group of co-committee
members and I truly believe as a team, we can uphold IEEE’s mission, vision and core values by making
more meaningful contributions in our local community.

Member-at-Large – Cosme Loi

As a member at large of the IEEE North Saskatchewan Section Young Professionals group. Having served as the past chair, I’m deeply committed to our mission of fostering connections between students, recent graduates, and young professionals in the industry.

My primary goal is to bridge the gap not only professionally but also personally by focusing on the development of social intelligence quotient (SQ) and emotional intelligence quotient (EQ).

We believe that these skills are not just vital for your career but also for your overall well-being. Join our vibrant community where we learn, grow, and support each other in both our personal and professional journeys!
