To all CAS Student/Young Professional:
IEEE Region 10 has invited Canadian engineers to participate in the All IEEE Young Engineers’ Humanitarian Challenge 2015 (AIYEHUM 2015). Proposals are due 2015 June 21. See the competition website for more information, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact your local section executive.
AIYEHUM is a project competition where young scientists and engineers (between the ages of 16 and 35 years) submit proposals of projects which are oriented around humanitarian issues. These
proposals can be their curriculum projects or other projects that are developed out of passion.
The short-listed project proposals will be given a grant of up to US$500 for prototype development. IEEE will assign a mentor for all short-listed teams. All successfully completed projects will be evaluated again and top teams will be partially funded to go to the IEEE Humanitarian Technology Conference to present their work. In addition, IEEE will also give prize money to winning teams.
