Student Paper Contest 2015
The IEEE Australia Council Student Paper Contest 2015 for postgraduate and undergraduate students is now open. The Student Paper Contest offers IEEE student members an opportunity to exercise and improve both written and verbal communication skills.
Throughout an engineer’s career, graduates are constantly called upon to communicate ideas to others. Researching, writing, and presenting a paper provides a student with invaluable early experience in expressing ideas related to their professional field. Since the paper contest’s primary function is to improve the engineering student’s communicative skills all IEEE student member in Australia are encouraged to participate in this contest.
The contest will be conducted for two separate categories: undergraduate students and postgraduate students. To promote the engineering profession among female students, the contest also offers prizes in both categories to members of the IEEE Women in Engineering Affinity Group.
