BMS College of Engineering had its Inauguration and Induction program for First Year Students, from the 12th of August, 2018 to the 1st of September, 2018. BMSCE IEEE got an opportunity to be a part of the event as well. Making the most of the opportunity at hand, the executive committee gave a talk on BMSCE IEEE, on the 23rd August 2018, to create awareness about IEEE to the incoming batch of students, in the Indoor Stadium.
Over 500 freshers attended the Orientation. The gathering was first addressed by Professor Abhishek Appaji, followed by Shreeguro Shreshti, chairman of BMSCE IEEE who gave a brief presentation about BMSCE IEEE and its various accomplishments. Some of the key events that the Student Branch had previously conducted, including Quiz Competitions, Paper Presentations and Hackathons among others were highlighted. Also, some notable workshops that were conducted were also mentioned.
There was a brief introduction to IEEE’s flagship events and BMSCE IEEE’s most sought after initiatives, the Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The list of SIGs for the coming year, were introduced. BMSCE IEEE ended its presentation with a promise of a surprise event. The new batch was visibly excited and intrigued to know what IEEE had in store for them this year. It was a very rewarding interaction.
