Mission Statement: Our focus as a Student Chapter of IEEE is to develop well rounded engineers with a broad spectrum of skills and experience both hands on and cross disciplinary.

Annual Report:  Throughout the semester we have exposed our members to a variety of conferences and projects in order to foster their abilities.

We had members attend national conferences including; IEEE Rising stars conference, Region 6 Leadership training, and the wireless innovations forum conference in San Diego where they presented a paper on antenna and interference mitigation.  Each conference allowed leaders within our chapter to develop and present their skills on a regional level.  

As a student chapter of our professional organizations we aim to not only develop ourselves as engineers, but as member of our community.  We volunteered our time to train Eagles scouts on soldering techniques as well as safety requirements that will allow them to develop the skills needed in order to advance in their electrical endeavors.  Additionally, we volunteered at this year’s Eastern Washington F.I.R.S.T. robotics FRC competitions and served as robotics inspectors, field technicians, and Pit counselors.  Keeping our community in mind in addition to developing professional skills, we provided a soldering workshop for Valentine’s Day heart circuits for any student to attend.

In order to develop more technical skills we decided to have an in-house model air craft competition, where two teams of students were given engineering requirements and budgetary constraints to compete in a development and construction competition.  The machine shop received an electric golf cart for which we assisted on the remodeling and made additional electrical improvements. Some of our future projects will consists of a DC powered linear machine and solar updraft tower in efforts to combine all disciplines in SEAS.
