The IEEE Student Branch, BITM was very much pleasured to set up an interactive session with our guest Dr. Raja Datta, Prof  & Head of GSSST IIT Kharagpur, senior IEEE member and former section vice chair and chair of IIT Kharagpur. Over the session our invitee gave us a brief overview of IEEE and also gave us a clarity on various things associated with IEEE. Clarified doubts like ‘how IEEE is beneficial even for Mechanical Engineering?’, ‘how to popularize the newly set up student branch in the college?’, similarly Q&A’s of same orientation were asked and clear cut description was briefed by our guest and overall it was a very informative session to all of us. We, the handful of IEEE student members, were highly privileged and we deeply thank our management and branch counselor Dr. Manjula R for giving us this wonderful opportunity of having our very first IEEE pre-event with an eminent professor from prestigious institution of our country.  The interaction kindled our young minds and motivated us to set-up high goals for our yet to form student branch. Now we are just waiting with crossed figures to hear the branch formation approval news from head office.

We the students of BITM are glad that we were permitted to visit and interact with IEEE student branch execom members of NIE MYSURU. We were interacting with them to know more about IEEE student branch: how to expand the community, how to keep it active, what are the responsibilities of the execom members, what sub-committees could be formed and what are their job roles, and etc. The Chair LIMITA SHETTY, Focusing group lead YESHWANTH and the Creative group head were helping us to know more the whole structure, contribution, rules & regulations of their IEEE Student branch which has sparked its inception in 1990. At the end, we were able to come up with a structure that would effectively manage our prospective branch and lead us towards success.
