IEEE Day 2022 -Montreal Section

#IEEEDay #networking #montreal #young #professionals #student #engineering

There will be drinks, food, suveniers, and more importantly, an opportunity for networking. 

Join the celebration around the world!

Every year, IEEE members and none-members from all IEEE Sections, Student Branches, Affinity groups, and Society Chapters join hands to celebrate IEEE Day. Events happen both virtually and in person. IEEE Day celebrates the first time in history when engineers worldwide gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. 


This year, IEEE Day 2022 Celebration is in-person!

After almost two years of holding the IEEE Day celebration virtual, we are pleased to announce that this year we will hold this event in person and we are very excited to meet our volunteers in the Montreal section. Reserve your seat right now!
