The IEEE PES Student Branch (SB) Chapter of Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology (RSET) was awarded 200 USD as part of the High Performing Student Branch Chapter (HPSBC) Program. The SB Chapter secured the 34th rank in Region 10 by the IEEE as part of the IEEE PES HPSBC Program. The ranking was based on criteria like the quantity and quality of events conducted, student participation and engagement levels, technical activities and webinars held to name a few.
The PES SB chapter was formed on the 26th January, 2020. From its very inception, our SB chapter has conducted plenty of technical events as well as educational webinars, earning its way to being awarded the 34th rank in the Asia Pacific region. Reports of every event we conducted had been submitted to the organisation shortly after their completion, and were used to evaluate the SB ranking.
The IEEE PES SB Chapter of RSET gained international recognition after being awarded the 34th position in the list of best IEEE PES SBC’s all over Region 10 of the IEEE. This was a turning point for our SB Chapter, raising morale for students to conduct even better events in the future.
