About us

What is IEEE?

IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, is the largest organisation of eletronics engineers and computer scientists in the world with 430,000 members in 160 countries. IEEE hosts conferences, issues professional journals and organizes standard setting working groups for hardware and software.

What is the IEEE Student Branch Passau?

The IEEE Student Branch Passau was officially founded on February 20th 1989. Our purpose is to fill the gaps in the areas of education, information interchange and contacts between students, lecturers, and companies, which the university does not or cannot close.

To achieve this goal, we organize workshops where students help students, we set up contacts to companies via excursions and presentations. In addition, papers, information for freshmen, our IEEE Specials, and the “Professors face-to-face” events are intended to ease the students’ everyday life.

We try to improve our personal skills by organizing workshops and contacting companies. Of course, fun is also a priority, e.g. at our regular meetings or a barbecue.

Whoever wants to participate in our work and other activities is highly welcome!


Further information on the IEEE and our Student Branch can be obtained at a meeting or at one of our events (see the events page) or just contact one of our members (e.g. the executive committee)! Links
