Benefits of Participating in Your Student Chapter
Meeting other IE students and IIE professional members
Each chapter provides a learning and networking environment. The chapter creates opportunities for establishing contacts with other students, and often with professional members from the local professional chapter. Establishing relationships with other IE students and professionals can build a network that can be invaluable throughout your career.
Programs and Events
Most chapters hold regular meetings that may include speakers, tours, hands-on instruction or social events. Student chapters also participate in an annual University Region Conference, which brings together students from all the colleges and universities in the surrounding region for presentations, a paper competition, and other events.
Developing Leadership Skills
Serving as a chapter officer or participating on a committee is an excellent way to develop and strengthen your leadership and organizational skills. You can improve your skills in delegating, meeting facilitation and motivation, just to name a few.
