Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we cannot offer soldering training, access to the soldering stations, or any of our other services at this time.
The IEEE Student Branch has three soldering stations available for all students to use, as long as, all rules and safety requirements are met.
Students wishing to construct circuits by soldering must follow this procedure (please note that soldering is only permitted in the IEEE Student Branch room ITB-141).

If no drop-in Session is available, please feel free to send us an email to book an appointment.
- Obtain an ECE Soldering Certification card (which must be renewed annually)
All students that wish to use the soldering stations in the IEEE Student Branch must have a valid soldering certification card and their student card. The soldering card must be given to a student branch member before soldering and will be returned once the station has been cleaned after use. During the times of soldering, there must be an IEEE Student Branch member present in the office.
