The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) branch at the Coast Guard Academy consists of all members of the Electrical Engineering Major. This student run body typically meets monthly for a lunch meeting where guest speakers have included US Coast Guard Astronaut and CGA EE graduate CAPT Burbank, representatives from the Coast Guard's Command and Control Engineering Center (C2CEN) and other Coast Guard Centers of Excellence, as well as distinguished Professors from other Electrical Engineering Programs. IEEE meetings also function as a meeting place for all EEs at the CGA. Most recently a Robotics group has been started from a small group of the members of IEEE at CGA. This group intends to expand its members and functions to build robots to compete in various National robotics competitions.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology.
IEEE is the leading authority on areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electrical power and consumer electronics.
