The IEEE Student Branch heard your prayers. A new edition of the Meet & Play afternoon is arriving soon ! I’m sure you all want to take a fun break with us while forgetting about all the remaining things that you need to do !Continue reading “Meet & Play – March 2019”
The Club Elec is the electronics club of UCLouvain supported by the IEEE Student Branch. Each year, many different activities are proposed to discover and learn electronics, from technical presentations to hands-on projects. Here is a short overview of the projects for 2018-2019:
- Presentation of the useful electronics components for DIY projects.
- Audio amplifier and filter project.
- Introduction to DC motors and chopper circuits for motor control
- Arduino-based guided robot
- Robot track contest (coming soon…)
If you would like to know more, don’t hesitate to contact members of the Club Elec, visit their website (here), or come to room Stevin a.143 any Wednesday between 1pm and 2pm.
Note that it is still time to take part in the ongoing robot project and contest, if you’re interested.

We are happy and proud to announce that yet another student from UCLouvain has been selected for the oral finals of the IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest.
Congratulations to Antoine Paris with his paper entitled “Identifiability Conditions for Multi-Channel Blind Deconvolution with Short Filters“! Next step: Eurocon 2019 Novi Sad, Serbia, where Antoine will represent UCLouvain and defend his paper in front of an international jury.
The IEEE Student Branch is back in 2019 with lots of social activities for ICTEAM researchers. And what better way to start this new series of events than a new edition of the Meet & Play afternoon?
Ho ho ho… Have you behaved well this year? On December 6th, Saint Nicholas and the IEEE Student Branch are coming to reward you with a fun board games afternoon!
The UCL IEEE Student Branch is glad to invite you to the following lecture :
“GNSS: From Telecommunication Signals to Satellites”
given by Xavier Maufroid, who works in the field of satellite telecommunications and is project manager for the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) project at the European Commission. After a brief presentation of his career, the speaker will present his current work within GNSS. Future perspectives in the field of satellite communications and aerospace engineering will also be discussed.
The UCL/ICTEAM IEEE Student Branch along with Prof. Denis Flandre is glad to invite you to the following seminar :
“Physically Compliant CMOS Electronics Enabled Interactive Electronic System”
given by Muhammad Mustafa Hussain, EDS Distinguished Lecturer and professor at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. Continue reading “Lecture: Muhammad Mustafa Hussain “Physically Compliant CMOS Electronics Enabled Interactive Electronic System””
Spring is well and truly here : the temperatures are rising , the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming… and the IEEE Student Branch is back with another edition of the Meet & Play afternoon !
Each year, the UCL IEEE Student Branch, composed of ICTEAM PhD students and supported by both the IEEE and the ICTEAM, organizes a contest for rewarding the best master’s theses in its fields of interest. The goals of the contest are twofold:
- First, to reward outstanding works from both technical and presentation-wise perspectives. To this end, a jury of researchers reads the abstracts, attends the master thesis presentations and interviews the participants. The three best candidates will receive a monetary reward.
- Second, to recommend potential candidates for an international contest: the IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest. IEEE’s Region 8 spans Europe, Africa and the Middle-East. We have had several successes at this Student Paper Contest, reaching the top 3 in previous years. More info can be found here.
For more information about the contest, please check the rules below.
The IEEE R8 Student Paper Contest just took place at Melecon 2018 in Marrakech (Morocco). This year, it was Benjamin Chiêm who had the difficult task of representing UCL. In the end, Benjamin ranked second with his thesis “Structural classification of structural brain networks reveals gender differences“. Congratulations to him and to all other participants !
