A yearly electronic design competition hosted by the IEEE that fosters DIY creativity throughout Michigan Tech.
The IEEE lab is a student run work space aimed at tinkerers, builders, and people with a general interest in electronics design. We provide a fully equipped and stocked lab for personal and professional use. We are available for students from any department on campus, as well as local community members.
Our lab is located at room EERC 809. To get to our lab, take the elevators in the EERC to the 8th floor. Exit and turn right. Continue to the end of the hall. If our doors are open, you will have entered the IEEE lab. If they are shut, you will have banged your head pretty hard, and you should get that checked out.
Our primary mission is to provide a usable lab space for the purpose of completing coursework or personal projects to all students of Michigan Technological University, as well as the general community. We keep a fully stocked electronics lab with tools, software, and free common parts to be used by our members. To see what we are capable of, visit Lab Capabilities.
Extra Curricular Design and Projects
We provide extra curricular opportunities for students to improve their design and build skills through lab projects and activities. Enthusiastic and passionate people make the best engineers, and we aim to attract that caliber of person to our lab by providing opportunities to participate in interesting projects that would otherwise be out of reach to the average poor college student. For examples of projects we have completed, see Lab Projects.
Part of our mission is to extend our services and knowledge to the local community. We aim to attract enthusiastic community members to our constituency. We also provide educational services focused on electrical engineering and electronic principals to the general public. To see what we do for the community, see our Community Outreach page.
We also provide a space and services for several student organizations on campus. We are actively involved with the the Robotic Systems Enterprise and provide them floor space and tools for use. We also work with the Husky Amateur Radio Club (HARC). Many of us are active Ham Radio operators, and we provide them with wiki space that they sort of use.
We attract a very high quality of person in our lab, and over the years many of our members have become very talented engineers. Being a regular member in the IEEE and our community provides opportunities for engineering help and advice. We are also nice people, and want to be friends with you. As a member of the IEEE National Society, we also have the ability to send people to conferences and bring in speakers depending on general interest.
You can usually find at least one of the officers in the lab during the day, and usually late into the night. The best way to contact us with comments/suggestions is through email. We also have a phone.
