The IEEE student branch at McGill is dedicated to the development of professional skills of electrical & computer engineering as well as computer science students. IEEE is the world’s leading professional not-for-profit association for the advancement of technology.

The McGill IEEE SB logo is a representation of Kirchhoff's current law (KCL) showing current current existing a node to be the sum of the currents going into it. This symbolizes how the strength of an organization such as IEEE is the sum of its members and groups. The shape of the logo's outline represents the iron-ring, symbol of Canadian engineering. The three colours in the photo are McGill's red, IEEE's blue and WIE's purple colour.
We are a group of undergraduate and graduate electrical & computer engineering and computer science students who want to have fun, to make friend and meet new people, to learn about research and innovation in technology, to disseminate the knowledge of electrical engineering, to find ourselves and our passions, to help others to advance and become more, and to get inspired to change our community!
