IEEE is the world's largest technical professional non-profit organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. We are a Student Branch belonging to IEEE , based at the Polytechnic Institute of Cávado and Ave and composed by IPCA Students and members of the IEEE.

Believing that there’s nothing more powerful that getting together a group of students with the objective of developing skills in order to take the control of their own professional level.

Our branch is the place where our student members will be able to explore, learn and practice along with other people with the same goals.
