IEEE Olypmics 1.0 Event Announcement.
We, in IEEEManSB, are glad to announce the launch of IEEE Olympics.
In a world where consumers are more connected, more tech savvy and more demanding than ever before, innovation has never been so crucial. The increasing consumer expectations and the rate of technological change both make it harder to climb into the labor market with nothing but an academic degree. Thus, IEEE Mansoura Student Branch seeks to qualify students with the needed qualifications for the labor market.
IEEE, The world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, has more than three thousand student branches around the world. And IEEEManSB is one of the most active student branches whose volunteers are always seeking to achieve the goals of IEEE, believing in the vision of the organization to create a smart, mature and creative engineering community.
Over the years, they actively work on many different events and activities to help the community to become more aware of all different tracks of technology and how to connect to the labor market.
Their special efforts this year are directed to the first edition of IEEE Olympics, A one of a kind event that is inspired by the spirit of the Olympics Games. It aims to bring technical contests in multiple fields altogether while keeping an atmosphere of fair competition. The event will be held on 10 September 2020 until the 5th of October. To fulfill the meaning of olympic competitiveness in the event, it consists of 5 contests that can be divided into 3 categories:
Category 1: Mobile Application & Game Jam.
Category 2: Problem solving - CTF (Cyber Security).
Category 3: Graphic Design.
Category 1: long-term projects with mentoring, follow-ups, and appropriate technical and motivational sessions through 3 qualifying phases.
Category 2 contests go through 2 stages. The top 3 places are to be determined and declared after the 2nd stage.
Category 3 consists of only one contest which is more like a Hackathon; where the students are given a society issue and asked to simulate it using graphic design. The top 3 places are to be declared after rating all the participants.
Participants in IEEE OLYMPICS 1.0 will get to have a unique and distinctive experience that will help them boost their career life in the labor market and acquire teamwork skills,
Do not miss the opportunity!
