Chapter Success Story: NIE IEEE Computer Society Student Branch Chapter

The NIE IEEE Student Branch Chapter of the Computer Society started three years ago with just 15 members and has grown to serve more than 60 students from The National Institute of Engineering, Mysore.

With the mission to create a community of technology enthusiasts on campus, the NIE IEEE Student Branch Chapter serves not only the membership through events and meetups, but also the broader community by providing basic computer education to under-privileged children in collaboration with Divya Deepa Charitable Trust, which provides accommodation, food, clothing, medical care free of cost, and educational opportunities to at-risk children. The student-volunteers worked with the kids (ranging between 6 and 14 years old) to design age- and skill-appropriate activities to teach the use of Microsoft Office.
