IEEE R10 Undergraduate Student Project Video Contest


The IEEE Region 10 Student Activities Committee recognizes the importance of communication skills for fresh graduates as throughout their careers, they are constantly called upon to communicate ideas to others. The contest offers IEEE student members an opportunity to exercise and improve both verbal communication and presentation skills in a concise manner suitable for a wider audience. The contest provides students with invaluable early experience in communicating ideas related to their professional field via electronic media.


The R10 UG Project Video Contest aims to improve students’ communication and presentation skills to a wider online viewing community, which may include a technical and non-technical audience. The contest will facilitate the recognition of these skills and encourage other student members to develop similar skills.


There shall be 3 research areas for the competition: (a) Power and Energy, (b) AI and Robotics, and (c) Communications and Signal Processing. The best entry for each of the categories shall be awarded a prize.
