Student Branches

An IEEE Student Branch gives students a community of peers, and a connection to faculty and industry professionals who drive innovation in countless technical fields. Student involvement in Branch activities, whether special projects, social and technical meetings, outreach programs, conferences, local Section or Regional opportunities, etc. can help develop a record of accomplishment and capabilities beyond the norm.

Instituto Politécnico de Castelo Branco Student Branch

Founded in 2004, IEEE IPCB Student Branch aims to foster the Interest and networking among students of IPCB, with interest to go deeper in knowledge and connections with colleagues all over the World.  Nowadays, our focus is in Computer Science and Engineering (Electronic, Renew Energies, Industrial or related fields). We are reactivating the branch to promote our students’ IT abilities. We pretend to organize technical workshops and events, and other initiatives to promote knowledge diversity in the STEM scope. The branch pretends to regularly organize events, such as lectures and workshops and common interesting initiatives, and to collaborate with other students branches.

Instituto Superior Técnico Student Branch

Founded in 1990, IEEE IST Student Branch aims to create opportunities for all IST creative minds. Nowadays, our team is divided into a central team (including the Board of Directors and the Internal Events and Design departments), 3 Chapters and 1 Affinity Group. Dedicated to the bioengineering field, EMBS is currently our largest Chapter. The team organizes disruptive initiatives that aim to approximate students to the technical-scientific world, as well as informal events and internship partnerships. CS focuses on improving students’ IT abilities. The team organizes technical workshops and events, and offers a vast repository of teaching materials about informatics tools. Recently recreated, RAS is dedicated to the development of robotics and automation projects and workshops. Finally, WIE aims to promote gender equality, especially in STEM fields. The team organizes events such as lectures and workshops, while also maintaining a monthly newsletter and other informative initiatives.

ISCTE Instituto Universitário de Lisboa Student Branch

As an IEEE ISCTE Student Branch, established on May , 2012, we are guided by a set of values that shape our mission and drive us towards our goals. Our dynamic community of tech-savvy students share a passion for knowledge, technology, and the desire to share their expertise with others.

At the heart of our activities is the organization of events that educate and inspire our student. From engaging workshops to thought-provoking conferences, we strive to advance technical literacy and creativity.
What sets us apart is the diversity of our members, who come from a range of academic fields. This diversity gives us the ability to offer a truly unique and comprehensive learning experience, where students from all disciplines come together to bring their ideas to life and make a lasting impact. Our Student Branch is a hub of cutting-edge thinking, innovation, and progress.

Universidade de Coimbra Student Branch

The Student Branch (SB) of the University of Coimbra comprises more than 80 members who seek to develop promising technology practices to impact society positively. The group is divided into three chapters (Computer Society, Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, and Power and Energy Society) and an affinity group (Women in Engineering). Over the last two years, numerous activities have been carried out in technical, social and soft skills areas. The Coimbra’s SB main focus is to develop innovative initiatives and events, ranging from training in technical skills to providing better internship opportunities – complementing academic education. In addition, Coimbras’s SB seeks to insert its members into the corporate world with collaborations with large companies (from various sectors) in Portugal.

Universidade do Minho Student Branch

Hosted in Guimarães, IEEE UMinho Student Branch is an active group of people whose purpose converges on spreading knowledge around the academic community. To aim that, several departments work together to organize activities with prestigious speakers, delivering a remarkable value to the attendees. Despite our main focus being to exploit engineering topics, anyone can subscribe and take the opportunity to gather some important skills. The message is spread not only to the local students but also to those from different universities. In general, we are more than an engineering-focused student branch. We are composed of a heterogeneous group of students, particularly competent in bringing updated topics to discussion from which everyone can learn a great deal. Join us to discover more!

Universidade do Porto Student Branch

Our Student Branch (SB) is comprised of University of Porto (UP) students who are IEEE members. We share a passion for knowledge, technology and sharing that knowledge with others.

One of our core endeavours is the creation and organisation of activities that enlighten our student community and also promote technical savviness in the general public. Those activities are usually Talks, Workshops, Conferences and Symposiums. Another core aspect of our 25+ years of existence is the development of projects that take advantage of our extremely diverse skillset to make them more complete and to make them a better learning experience for our members. 

The fact that we have members from many fields of study in IEEE puts us in the unique position of being able to offer these kinds of more complete learning opportunities. It’s something you won’t find in any other University of Porto student group.

Universidade NOVA de Lisboa Student Branch

The IEEE Nova Student Branch is located in the Nova School of Science and Technology and allows students to get involved in projects, events, competitions, or conferences within and outside the IEEE network. Our SB is involved in educational and technical projects as well as social events.
