IEEE Regional Exemplary Student Branch Award 2022

The IEEE UP Student Branch is once again one of the winners of the IEEE Regional Exemplary Student Branch Award.

Through the many activities they promote, this student group was recognized as having an exemplary performance, offering its members and the community numerous opportunities for development of technical skills and personal development through its various groups: Computer Society, Robotics and Automation Society, Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society and Women in Engineering.

The current President of this group, Manuel Cerqueira da Silva, tells us that “as a member who contributed to the achievement of this award and as current president I feel an enormous pride in seeing our work recognized. Receiving this award is very special because it is proof that with our commitment, even in the most difficult moments, we managed to maintain the level of excellence. Thus, I intend to continue this project, strengthening the connection with other student groups and associations of the University of Porto in order to reach higher levels and contribute to the student community.”

It is also with great pride that Guilherme Barcelos, responsible for the Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, received the news: “When I found out that we received the award for another year in a row I was very happy, but at the same time I felt that this was expected. Our group has always maintained its level of excellence since many years, we went through the pandemic and we are still here strong and full of energy to do even more. So with the work done by the boards, plus the commitment of our members, this award becomes well deserved. As a member for years, I am very happy to see our group shining and bringing the best in all engineering!”
