CONGRESS

Objectives

Technology has gone a long way towards improving quality of life and humanity. Yet in Africa in general, East Africa region in particular, the benefits of these technologies can rarely be noticed in the everyday life.

This primarily as a result of lack of coordination between various entities responsible for specific sectors/areas of provision of services and solutions to the public which include both the public and private sectors. The results is stunted development, unnecessary hardship, lost opportunities and an increasing lethargy of the citizenry.

In an attempt to use the IEEE EASYPC to come up with solutions that could allow these students and Young professionals to be better equipped to contribute positively wherever they find themselves, the theme for this year’s congress is “Build a sustainable community of IEEE members and volunteers “

The Congress aims are:

  1. Provide a prestigious international forum offering presentations, workshops, discussion groups and other activities of interest and value to young IEEE members.
  2. Promote the benefits of IEEE membership generally, particularly Students, Graduate Students member grades.
  3. Contribute to the development, progress and welfare of countries in East Africa region by disseminating technological knowledge and experience in the relevant IEEE fields.
  4. Encourage the study of technology and technological applications in a broad social and human centric context.

Enable the East African Region and Uganda Subsection to develop as mature self-managing IEEE entities by accepting the responsibilities of a major event organization.
