First IEEE Convention of Electrical & Electronics Engineering Students
Israel is well known for its label as the startup nation, and engineering at Israeli universities is flourishing as well. However, so far IEEE student members have had very few organized activities. This dramatically changed this year at the First Convention of Electrical & Electronics Engineering Students in Israel (IEEEIs 2015). IEEEIs 2015 was held at Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, and featured keynotes, oral presentations, poster sessions, and a job fair.
