Who are IEEE Makers?
IEEE Makers at the University of Houston is an organization that gives students the opportunity to gain hands-on building experience and showcase these skills to the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department. In the upcoming year, we hope to reach out to organizations throughout the engineering, technology, and computer science colleges to increase involvement our Makers’ Showcase and Build-A-Bot competition. These events allow anyone to gain some experience with coding and circuitry. We also are planning to expand this program to many high schools and middle schools to let them get a feel for Electrical Engineering. In addition, IEEE Makers has teams building projects that will be featured in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Head Association (ECEDHA) annual conference. Projects on the current roster are smart lighting, racing drones, autonomous drones, and an assistive robotic arm for use in labs.
