About IEEE Founder’s Day
The IEEE Founder’s Day is celebrated every year across the globe, usually during the first week of October. Like every student chapter across the globe, the IEEE LUMS celebrates the Founder’s Day annually. This year too, the IEEE LUMS celebrated the day with great zeal, zest and enthusiasm; with the aim of bettering their past events.
Introduction to IEEE Day
The event started off by a brief introduction of the IEEE and its Founder’s Day.
‘3-min Madness’ was the stand-out feature of this event. Each instructor was called on-stage and was asked to give a 3-min talk on their lives: What motivated them to pursue their respective careers, the funny incidents they had come across and their advice to the young audience.
After the 3-min talk of each instructor, questions from the audience were taken. These included both academic and personal questions on their lives. All of them were answered to one’s content and humour.
A delicious and mouth-watering cake was sponsored by: ‘Cake Crust by Bisma Azhar’. The cake was cut by the instructors collectively and distributed among the audience to celebrate the Founder’s Day. The cake was equally liked by both the audience and the instructors.
IEEE Day Photo
Every year, there’s a photographic competition by the IEEE. Student Chapters from across the globe send their group photos on the occasion of IEEE Day. Thus, the event was concluded by a nice group photo of the instructors and the student body.
