Technical Presentation Competition

IMPORTANT: As of 2/7/21, this competition has had some changes. Changes were made to the timeline, abstracts are now to be written, and finalists will have to self drive a virtual presentation. This does deviate from the original information on this page but we feel students will prefer the changes we made as they allow more schedule flexibility. The rules have now been posted below.

In the IEEE Region 3 Student Presentation Competition, IEEE undergraduate students will have the opportunity to refine their technical presentation skills. The technical presentation should be able to clearly describe your technical contributions and to convince others about the importance of the technical aspects in the allowed content areas below.

There will be 5 content areas allowed this year:
1) Internship/non-profit project
2) Class research project
3) Personal interest on a technical topic
4) Training/tutorial material
5) Technical pitch for business sponsorship

Teams must submit a written abstract when they register for the competition, by the competition registration deadline. The abstract must be one paragraph description of what your technical presentation will be about and how it fits into one of the content areas above.

All teams will be notified by Sunday, February 28th if they are finalists in the competition. The finalists will have to record their presentation and submit it by Monday March 8th. Teams can be made up of 1-3 students. There is no limit to how many teams each university can submit abstracts, but only one team per university will be chosen as a finalist.
