IEEE Week 2017: The Convergence of Realities

Mapúa Institute of Technology Student Branch’s (IEEE-MITSB) invites you to experience IEEE Week 2017: The Convergence of Realities. Discover how the convergence of realities play a major role in the advancement of technology and shaping the humanity’s future from June 6 – 10, 2017.

This year, the weeklong festivities aim to share the importance of technological advancements

made by converging virtualization with reality, hence the term mixed realities.

The weeklong event will kick off with the technical seminars on June 6 and 7, which will include a series of talks from experts in fields: Swarm Robotics, Error Resilient Video Coding and Communications, Electrical Grounding Installation, Virtual and Augmented Realities, and Mixed Realities.

On June 8 and 9, the organization will hold its Radio Broadcasting Competition and Quiz Bee: Battle of the Brains, respectively. The Radio Broadcasting Competition is a one-day event to demonstrate the participants’ understanding in Journalism through Radio Broadcasting. The Quiz Bee, on the other hand, aims to test the knowledge of participating students in the field of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering.


On June 10, the organization will host its flagship event, the 14th Annual Project Design Competition. This event aims to showcase prototypes created by participating students, made with their own innovative features and purposes. The competition is deemed to be the forerunner for future research endeavors in the organization, as well as in other IEEE Student Branches.

IEEE Week 2017: The Convergence of Realities will not only conduct technical seminars and events for electrical, electronics, and computer engineering students. The event also aims to be a venue for students to celebrate technology, meet experts in different fields, discuss with co-engineering students, and more.

The event is being held with the full support of the IEEE: Philippines Section, along with other student branches from University of the Philippines, University of Santo Tomas, De La Salle University, and University of the East – Caloocan.
