IEEE New Zealand Central Section Young Professionals organized a social networking event of students and young professionals on the 1st of April 2016 from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm. The event was held at Alan MacDiarmid Building Room 101, Kelburn Parade, Victoria University of Wellington.
This was an informal social event aimed at connecting young engineers (under the age of 30) from industry practicing in any of the IEEE fields of interest to graduate students of the IEEE NZ Central Section. The event encouraged networking and collaboration between the Student and Young Professionals in the greater Wellington area and proved extremely useful to the graduate students who wish to seek employment in any of the IEEE fields of practice upon completion of their graduate studies. The event was also aimed at increasing the Student and Young Professional membership count, as it presented an ideal opportunity for those not aware of the IEEE and its practices. 13 students and 7 industry professionals attended the event.
This gathering was fruitful for all the attendees and the IEEE New Zealand Central Young Professionals look forward to organize many more effective programs in this year. Stay tuned!
