Fighting Canada’s Digital Divide by Young Professionals Southern Alberta
July 21, 2018

IEEE young professionals Southern Alberta section, Canada, organised  ‘Fighting Canada’s Digital Divide’ on 19th April 2018 at the University of Calgary. The purpose of the event was to ignite young IEEE member’s passion for engineering, open their eyes to hands-on experience through humanitarian work and allow like-minded students and professionals to network.

The highlight of the event was the presentation by the self-taught engineer Bruce Buffalo. The inspirational work he’s currently doing to bring connectivity into isolated parts of Canada, motivated the audience to a greater extent which resulted some students including a professor volunteered to help Bruce in his cause and to take it into the next level. This was a great example of how IEEE can support engineering solutions to solve real-world problems which have a positive impact on people’s daily lives. Work of this nature provides invaluable experience to young IEEE members as they transition into the professional world with real, hands-on experience and a genuine ambition for engineering.

The event was a great success as the expected attendance was present and the audience was active and involving.
