IEEE Day: Why Your Technical Skillset Might Not Be Enough & 'State of the IEEE Pikes Peak Section'

October 6, 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

The IEEE University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) Student Branch and IEEE Pikes Peak Section, will celebrate IEEE Day on 6 Oct 2022.
The IEEE Pikes Peak Section will be visiting IEEE UCCS Student Branch to gather their needs and requirements. and are prepared to provide two presentations.
Three presentatons are given: One is about a general status update to the Pikes Peak Section and the next two are for IEEE UCCS Student Branch.
The first talk is a short 6-minute video recording narrated by Dr John Santiago talking about the Status Update of the Achievements from the IEEE Pikes Peak Section located at: (https://site.ieee.org/pikespeak/ieee-region-5/) The talk was in preparation for the Region 5 Achievements Forum, scheduled for 9 Sep 2022 presenting IEEE Pikes Peak Section Status Update and Achievements for historical purposes. A follow-up virtual session will be scheduled shortly following IEEE Day to address any comments or questions from the video. You can send your comments and questions to Dr. Santiago at john.santiago@ieee.org.
The next two presentations are scheduled from 11:00 am- 12:30 am at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) at the Saponas Lounge in the Engineering and Applied Science Building (Second floor). Unfortunately, UCCS has limited seating.
The first two members of the Pikes Peak Section to contact Dr John Santiago at john.santiago@ieee.org before 6 Oct 2022 will be able to attend the two presentations.
For now, a video without narrations will be provided as well as digital flipbooks and can be found here before 6 Oct: (https://site.ieee.org/pikespeak/professional-development/) Follow-up photos and other media, as well as any updates, will be provided after the event.
The first presentation, entitled, "Why Having a Technical Mindset May Not Be Enough", and given by Dr. John Santiago (Chair, IEEE Pikes Peak Section and Webmaster) will highlight about being successful in an engineering career. Dr Santiago will introduce an integrated growth mindset focusing on creating value and system thinking , and Pyramid of Success On Leadership as a framework in helping student members achieve success while giving the students a competitive edge. With accelerating changes in the global community, today’s solutions are often obsolete tomorrow. What does this imply to student members as future engineers? Students will need to be empowered to investigate a rapidly changing world by persistently anticipating and meeting the needs of a changing world. That is, students will need to pursue knowledge with their own discoveries to reveal innovative solutions. These innovative solutions must be meaningful in creating value that benefits themselves, their families, their employers and to society. So having a technical skillset is not enough…find out what else you will need to help students become successful in their engineering career.
The second presentation, entitled, Going Pro, is given by Daniel Thomson (IEEE Pikes Peak Section Student and Young Professional Coordinator). When it comes to professional organizations like IEEE, you don't HAVE to be a member, but would you trust your doctor if they told you that they've never been a member of the American Medical Association? IEEE is the largest professional organization for software, electrical and computer engineering IN THE WORLD. Within IEEE there are opportunities for absolutely anyone, even non-STEM majors! Being a student member has never been more affordable and more crucial given the intense employment headwinds and economic downturn. Join me as I discuss WHY being a student, graduate or young professional member of IEEE is so valuable and HOW you can get instant Return on Investment (ROI) from your membership.
