IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology and is a leading authority on areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics among others. Members rely on IEEE as a source of technical and professional information, resources and services. The student chapter of the IEEE at Montana Tech serves as a link to the professional activities of the IEEE and as an effective career management resource. Student members have access to technical and career information compiled by the over 375,000 IEEE members worldwide. Electrical Engineering students at Montana Tech are encouraged to join and be actively involved in the IEEE.
The IEEE club at Tech participates in a variety of activities. Every year they sponsor two or three major field trips to visit national labs and major engineering companies and events within the Northwest US. These trips are sponsored through annual fund raising events.
The UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) club builds, tests, and flies unmanned airplanes. The department maintains a dedicated laboratory for the UAV club and Professor Moon leads students in projects.
