This student community aims to inform fellow students in "Open Source" technologies (indicatively: "Linux Beginners", "Web Developers", "Arduino Developers" etc). This is done through regular seminars and lectures that are being organized.
IEEE University of Piraeus Student Branch (IEEE SB)
The University of Piraeus IEEE Student Branch was officially founded on July the 12th 2004. The formation of this student branch would not have been possible had it not been the 25 undergraduate and 3 doctoral students from the Department of Digital Systems, whom they formed the inaugural functional core along with the scientific counselor of the team Prof. Athanasios Kanatas. The student branch from the first day of its run was actively present and attended several nationwide meetings from similar student groups, as well as in the 1st and 2nd Greek-Turkish meeting which took place at the Democritus University of Thrace in Xanthi and Bogazici University in Istanbul respectively. Its role among others was to organize a significant number of technological and professional speeches and some mini workshops to educate and inform its members on innovative developments in the research and technology fields. Often, it has organized educational trips and visits to companies and institutions engaged in the areas of research and development as well as in the production and distribution of technologically advanced services such as the visit in the Thermopylae Satellite Ground Station owned by the Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE). Finally, the student branch is trying in every way possible to assist and engage its members in activities for conveying knowledge and developing healthy competition through various international competitions organized by the IEEE regularly, in some of which the IEEE SB has participated.
