From October 3rd to October 6th, IEEE week 2016 was celebrated for the first time in our faculty. In order to provide the student community with a fruitful and different afternoon, the EMBS and IAS Student Branch Chapters organized a Workshop about Proactivity and Entrepreneurship named “Mexe-te” (“Move Yourself!”).
This workshop was given by André Couceiro, a Partner’s Manager at Inspiring Future (a non-profit association, focused on developing innovative projects in the area of juvenile education).
Aimed at younger students, this workshop with full room was a fun way to discuss how to make the most out of the time we have every day and how to make an impression on someone, among other related subjects. The feedback received from the participants was highly positive, as they agreed they would recommend this workshop to others, and would like to be a part of similar initiatives in the future, since it was a useful and interactive activity.

The first week of this lective year is dedicated to the enrollment process of the new students. We were involved in welcoming those new students to our university by promoting our values and the purpose of our Student Branch and introducing them to what IEEE is and its importance in the engineering world. EMBS contributed actively to show the young students all the different activities that they can participate in. The students had access to tools related to receiving and sending biosignals, being able to control a drone, play videogames with MYO band, only using their EMG signals.
