Welcome to the Daytona Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

We cover the Northeast Central Region of Florida,.  This includes the counties of Volusia and Flagler, and stretches North from Marineland to the East at DeBary and as far South as Oak Hill.

From the Daytona Section Chair

This fall we have scheduled several meetings in a variety of formats: interactive presentation, town hall, and an expert panel. In the future we will be conducting more of these and will be looking for more of you to get involved. WIE is growing and student participation is increasing. All that is missing is you. Find out how you can get involved in section events and Women in Engineering. During the next 90 days we will also be holding voting for the Daytona Section’s Executive Committee. Feel free to add your name to the list. Visit the section website for a list of positions. We WILL help you get started and involved!
