Young Professionals & Women in Engineering Reception

June 9, 2023

Where: Intercontinental Shanghai Expo, Villa 9
When: June 9, 19:00 - 21:00

Introduction: The last few years of student life and the time following graduation can be challenging for young engineers. Employment searches, new jobs, professional growth, career development, and life status changes are common experiences. Going through these challenges can be daunting, but IEEE members never have to go through them alone or uninformed. IEEE Young Professionals (YP) was created in 1996 as a membership program to help students transition to young professionals within the larger IEEE community. IEEE Student Members are automatically added to the YP community as they graduate. YP is a vibrant community of engineers, scientists, and technical experts with members from across the globe and throughout IEEE Societies.
Organizing a YP reception has become a tradition at major IEEE PELS-sponsored conferences. This event provides an excellent opportunity for young graduates and YPs to mingle with peers and learn from big names in power electronics. This year, at IEEE PEDG, we are proud to announce that a YP reception filled with exciting programs is scheduled to be held on the evening of June 9th. Moreover, this year's YP event is also coorganized with Women in Engineering, as a YP & WiE reception. We look forward to seeing many of you on June 9th. We have prepared light meals and drinks FREE OF CHARGE. Due to limited space, registration is required. First come, first served.
