The purpose of the EPICS in IEEE program is to further incorporate EPICS into IEEE worldwide, by empowering student branches and IEEE YP groups to work with high school students on EPICS community service-related engineering projects, and by institutionalizing the program within IEEE.
We aim to:
- establishement a relationship between the student branches in participating sections, a local high school (or schools), and charitable, communal or humanitarian organizations in each venue.
- increase high school student interest in pursuing an engineering-related career path.
- develop of training workshops to train local section champions to establish an EPICS-site in their IEEE sections using local volunteers and resources.
