The very success story of it students as professionals into their respective fields after graduations speaketh of its standards.
IEEE- SJCE now has about 100 members from six fields of engineering: Biotechnology, Computer Science, Electronics & Communication, Electrical & Electronics, Information Science and instrumentation technology. Apart from these many students from various post graduation departments have also subscribed to be the members.
IEEE- SJCE conducts two annual technical fests - TUXEDO, a linux fest during the odd semesters and CYBERIA, the annual technical fest conducted during the even semesters. CYBERIA was instigated 17 years ago and till now it has been organized for 16 years. The events in the fest are so organized as to give students from all branches of engineering, irrespective of them being members or not and irrespective of their branches to show case their talents and abilities.
Apart from these, various other weekly events are conducted such as Speak-o-meter, Interest groups, WIE (Women in Engineering) sessions.Speak-o-meter is a weekly event that is organized to reduce the stage fear of a person. It is done by conducting regular debates, elocution.
In order to make students technically competitive technical tests on C programming microprocessors etc are conducted. Various workshops and crash courses are also organized.
