The IEEE Region 1 Student Conference is the premier annual event where all student branches from IEEE Region 1 (Northeast Region of United States of America) will meet. The conference objective is to encourage student competition and provide an opportunity for the students to network and learn from other students from across the Region 1, while applying practical engineering knowledge in the various competitions. It also provides the great opportunity for the student members to network with the Industry Professionals and the IEEE Leaders.
