Educational Activities

Educational Activities Committee‘s charter is to help ensure the growth of skill and knowledge among the technical profession on Long Island and to foster individual commitment to continuing education among IEEE LI members, the engineering and scientific community, and the general public. We will promote EAB (Educational Activity Board) objectives to Long Island IEEE members and voice the concern of IEEE Long Island members in these pursuits whenever relevant.
The IEEE LI Section has many groups that already bring in speakers for the education of our members. The Educational Activities supports these groups by arranging speakers on varied topics such as Power, Embedded Processing, RF, and other areas.
Educational Activities also works with GOLD and local University IEEE student groups to provide a prelude to the Electrical Engineering profession and to bring industry examples of the daily work as Electrical Engineers. At the High School level, Education Activities show that Electrical Engineering is not a poor choice in the new Millennium because of outsourcing. EEs are needed to bring new solutions to the many new challenges facing the new generation.

Sample Summary:

Dr. A of Brookhaven National Labs was a noted international scientist so he was not available on a daily basis. He clearly defined his expectations though to create a connection means from his experiment in MATLAB that would extract sample data and be analyzed in an Access database. I was expected to learn MATLAB and Access in one semester and apply this knowledge to his project; which I did. What I liked about the internship was after extensive research in their library, I found I that I rose to the occasion with self-discipline and self-motivation to develop a viable solution. My takeaway is that even if you are faced with a daunting task with limited direction, be creative, ask questions and persevere. A solution will present itself.


I would recommend wholeheartedly any technical internship opportunity to get the exposure and experience of the real-life workforce. How people influence and contribute to a STEM research project in different ways are evident. Although my part is a small piece of the bigger picture it is none the less impactful to me and a helpful research element to Dr. A. At a place like Brookhaven you experience high level energy and state of the art technology which is not easily taught in the classroom. Relish your internship, meet new people and approach your experiences with a positive attitude and it will take you places.
