IEEE STUDENT BRANCH SHUMEN

 

Our IEEE SB was established in the former “P. Volov” Artillery and Air Defense Military Academy (AADMA). After Bulgaria obtained full NATO membership the quantity of our cadets was reduced. As a result, the “P. Volov” AADMA and two other military academies were transformed in a new institution, named National Military University. Our former academy was succeeded by the Faculty of Artillery, Air Defense and Communication-Information Systems. Now our IEEE SB consists of two parts. The smaller one are the cadets of the Faculty of Artillery, Air Defense and Communication-Information Systems. The biggest one are the students of the University of Shumen. In the past fifths years these parts worked together very well, because both University of Shumen and the former “P. Volov” AADMA are located in city of Shumen and because they have established a successful cooperation. As a result our SB was stabilized. For instance, during the 2004-2014 academic years the number of the Members of our SB was:

The good news around us are:

1) The new Faculty of Technical Sciences of the University of Shumen, established on 23.02.2006., has over 700 students. In this academic year it obtained accreditation for 6 years from the National Accreditation Agency of the Bulgarian Government. Several new programs have been established.

2) We are developing a successful cooperation with the Faculty of Automatics and Electronics of the University of Rousse “Angel Kanchev”, located in the city of Rousse (105 km from us).

3) During the last academic year members of our SB participated in the Scientific Conferences of the National Military University ‘2009, Naval Academy – Varna ‘2009, Faculty of Artillery, Air-Defense and Communication-Information Systems ‘2009.

4) Three members of our SB have been nominated for National scholarships “Evrica’2010” and one of them has obtained scholarship “Evrica’2010”. (Note that per an academic year only 10 National scholarships “Evrica” are given).

5) Three members of our SB have been nominated for National scholarships “Evrica’2011” and one of them has obtained scholarship “Evrica’2011”.

         We participated in the R8 IEEE SB’ Congress 2010 and intend to participate in all meetings of IEEE Balkan region student branches, IEEE Region 8 and Bulgarian IEEE section.

The primary purpose of our Branch as a student organization is to improve the quality of our members’ scientific and technical preparation, using the information and materials from the IEEE societies and the relationships among other IEEE student branches.
