Call for Projects for the ERAU Student Branch

The IEEE Daytona Beach Section is soliciting project ideas to help student members build fundamental engineering skills. We are looking for Section Members to submit project ideas to Rebecca DeMarco, IEEE Daytona Section Student Activities Chair.

  • Short projects to be completed in a few weekends;
  • To include several high level steps;
  • Include enough guidance for students to understand scope of work and required materials;
  • Submission Deadline: February 18, 2022

Sponsorship by a IEEE Daytona Section member is a meaningful way to engage with the ERAU student chapter.  Responsibilities will include to provide the idea, and some loose guidance how to complete the project,  perhaps engaging in mentoring some of the students. ERAU has a LPKF ProtoMat S103 PCB machine; projects specifically focused on using the PCB machine are especially appreciated.
