Student Branch Chapters

A student branch chapter is a geographically based unit of the SMC Society and the Region. They represent and fulfill the needs of student members at specific universities.

Student branch chapters provide student members with valuable opportunities to meet face to face and host local activities. They operate similar to a regular society Chapter.

Establishing a SMC Society Student Branch Chapter

A SMC Society Student Branch can be established at any location where there’s an IEEE Student Branch. If an IEEE Student Branch doesn’t exist at your university, speak with an adviser to find out how to create one. The process for starting an IEEE Student Branch can be found on IEEE.org.

Recent Activities:

Our three sub-teams (Electronics, Mechanics, and Software) have each been working hard to move though the design process of our autonomous soccer playing robots. These robots are being designed for international competition in the B league of Robocup. Each sub-team has weekly meetings to discuss progress, delegate new tasks, and tackle difficult challenges as a group. Additionally, our outreach team hosted a workshop in May of 2023 for grade 9 and 10 students from the community to learn about robotics and engineering. During this event we introduced the students to Arduino programming with multiple interactive activities.

Future Activities:

In the coming months we hope to prepare our robots and software to a competition ready state. Once our robots are ready to compete we hope to play some matches with other local Robocup teams. After we have had the opportunity to test our systems in a match environment we will focus on qualifying and then competing in an international Robocup competition which are held annually all around the world. In addition to these goals, we also plan on continuing to hold outreach events for grade school students interested in engineering.
