In commemoration of the PES Day series of events that were conducted by IEEE PES Student Branch Chapter College of Engineering Chengannur throughout the month of April. We celebrated the unity, strength, and achievements of the IEEE PES family. We celebrated the rich and proud history of PES running right back to its birth in 1884. IEEE PES Day was celebrated to provide a rostrum to gather and share about the latest technical innovations around the world and to acknowledge the many initiatives the society has taken part in. Also for educating its members, to derive substantial benefits from the society throughout the month of April. The program helped to spread the essence of PES and the theme “More Power to the Future”.
