LOGAN, Utah – March 16, 2015 – The USU local chapter of IEEE, institute of electrical and electronics engineers,  will have the privilege of hosting the annual Student-Professional Awareness conference, SPAC 2015, on March 28, 2015.

The conference is a catalyst for connecting students with the engineering industry and better preparing them for their future careers.

The overarching goal of SPAC is to increase professional awareness among engineering students.

Last year SPAC had over 170 engineering students and top innovators from various fields of engineering participate in the conference. Sam Mitchell, IEEE Chair, said, “Last year SPAC was a blast. We assisted hundreds of students to become more acquainted with careers in engineering. This year our team has been working around the clock to make SPAC 2015 a meaningful experience.”

The conference will host multiple workshops that will hit key topics including technical discussions by companies and current innovators, Arduino/soldering, python, and MATLAB. Justin Jonas (IEEE SPAC Chair) said, “The workshops will help students become more familiar with industry related programming tools to support academic and future engineering projects and learn the process and practice of innovation. This is a great opportunity to enhance your skills and to network with companies.”

Speakers from Witricity and Space Dynamics Laboratory are scheduled to attend SPAC 2015.

The conference will be hosted from 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on March 28, 2015. All college and high school students are invited to attend.
