In the course of our first meeting on October 10, 2016, we were able to announce some awards the Student Branch received recently.
For the second time we were able to receive the IEEE Region 8 Exemplary Student Branch Award. This honor is awarded to Student Branches that on the one hand act on behalf of the rules of IEEE and on the other hand perform extraordinarily. The figure shows our chairman Stephan Lukasczyk and our vice-chairman Sebastian Böhm with the IEEE Region 8 Exemplary Student branch Award.
For organizing the IEEE Region 8 Student and Young Professional Congress 2016 in Regensburg, which was organized by the Student Branches of Passau and Regensburg, both Student Branches received an award of the German Section of IEEE, which was presented at the meeting of the executive committee of the German Section. The figure shows our chairman Stephan Lukasczyk while presenting the award to our past chairman Thomas Ziegler who was our chairman back then and was participating in the organizing committee.
Additionally to the award for the Student Branch for organizing the IEEE Region 8 Student and Young Professional Congress 2016, the co-chair of the organization committee, Thomas Stieglmaier, received an award by the German Section of IEEE. Stephan Lukasczyk presented this award to Thomas and again thanked him for his work.
