) is a non-profit student organization for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) students in Europe with 39 branches in 20 countries. EESTEC is a pre-professional organization that empathizes a more general skill-set (e.g. Soft skills
and presentation skills); by comparison the IEEE
is an organization entirely devoted to professional skill development (e.g. RF antenna design, publications).
EESTEC is divided into three tiers. Top-down they are:
- EESTEC International, is the supraorganization assisting and overseeing all LC and Obs. groups.
- Local Committee, or LC, is an EESTEC group that has sponsored at least one event before the yearly report and review period.
- Observer, is an EESTEC group that has not sponsored an during the current yearly report period. Observers are the first step to joining as an LC.
History of EESTEC
The idea of creating a European student organization for electrical engineering students was born in 1958, but preparation meetings started in 1963 in Paris, France.
EURIELEC was founded in Berlin in 1964, with goals such as promoting contacts and practical work between foreign students of electrical engineering, and also exchanging information for study possibilities and excursions with other EE faculties. Official language of... Read More
