Rowan Student Branch
If you don’t see the need to join the national IEEE or don’t want to pay the membership fee, you can always join the The Rowan University IEEE Student Branch. The Rowan University IEEE Student Branch meets every month, usually on the second Friday of the month. These meetings are usually held in room 239, Rowan Hall, at 1:30pm. As always, free pizza and soda is served at the end of the meetings, all are welcome. In addition to these meetings, IEEE is highly involved in numerous campus activities, video game tournaments, company tours, and many other events, which can be found here. If you have even the slightest interest in technology shaping our future today, IEEE is the organization for you.
Members are entitled to receive several publications, including Spectrum which is the major monthly magazine for IEEE members, Potentials which is a magazine devoted to topics of special interest to student members, and any of the technical journals associated with the IEEE societies which the student chooses to join. In particular, Potentials gives a student invaluable information about choosing an area of specialization, the job market, graduate school, emerging technologies, and more. Student membership in the IEEE is an ideal way to learn more about the professions of electrical engineering and computer science.
