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.
