IEEE Young Professionals offers webinars for members on topics related to professional development, humanitarian efforts, and technical knowledge. Young Professional webinars are scheduled quarterly and are recorded for on-demand viewing. Soon the webinars will be available for viewing on the IEEE Young Professionals Channel at IEEE.tv. Please check back as a new series is being developed.
Presented by Sampathkumar Veeraraghavan
This webinar presents insight into the role of engineers in addressing global humanitarian challenges. The author will present the importance of technology-based humanitarian programs and discuss various avenues offered by IEEE to drive technology-based development for addressing challenges in the humanitarian space. The webinar further shares best practices, guidelines, and metrics to be considered while designing a technology-based humanitarian platform. The audience will learn more about the “Brahmam Model” and its successful case studies in developing large-scale computing solutions for focus areas like education, disability, and healthcare.
Presented by Joanna Hill
Joanna was born and raised in Miami, FL, USA. She was educated at Florida Institute of Technology and Georgia Tech, receiving her M.S.E.E. in 1976. Starting her career with Texas Instruments in the suburbs of Houston, TX, USA, she came to the Detroit, MI, USA area to work for Burroughs in 1979 on a single user computer, the B80. After the merger with Sperry, she left the computer industry in 1986 to work for United Technologies Automotive. While working for Burroughs in Plymouth, MI, she audited an antenna design class at the University of Michigan. Along the way she learned about fractional wavelength antennas while designing automotive keyless entry receivers and transmitters. Those little fobs have a fractional wavelength antenna inside them. These small antennas taught her that a fully functional radio link could be obtained with a tiny little bad antenna. She extended the knowledge of fractional wavelength antennas to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and learned to recognize these antenna structures within printed circuit boards and products. This work led to the creation of the 10 Golden Rules of EMC.
This webinar, which was held 24 February 2014 at 2:00 pm ET, highlighted a new offering for IEEE Students. IEEE ResumeLab is an online service that allows IEEE members to develop a resume or curriculum vitae using a wide array of resume templates. Members can also perform mock interviews using over 900 potential interview questions or develop letters, portfolios, and skills assessments to use during the interview process. Best of all, the information developed on IEEE ResumeLab is easily shared with potential employers, mentors, or colleagues via a personalized Web site.
