The student branches are extremely important for the IEEE, that we was talked about in many ways. Most IEEE members became members as students. The IEEE has a lot of benefits for students who are doing research because of the Online Digital Library. If we focus our efforts on creating new student branches and having activities to involve them, our Siberia Section will grow. Once we have a lot of students, we can host conferences to make money for our section, draw the interests of industry to hire and train our students and more.
Region 8 always supported student activities and a lot of great ideas for the kinds of activities that our students will enjoy. You can contact with student activities committee from the Region 8 Student Activities website at http://www.ieee-r8sac.org
