IEEE VIC Summit @ The Palace in San Francisco, CA
May 25 all-day


Join us for the 1st annual IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit & Honors Ceremony Gala “IEEE VICS” on 25 May 2017 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

Engineers are at the center of innovation. They have improved our quality of life and changed the way we live, work, communicate, and obtain knowledge. Evolutionary changes would not have been possible without the work of engineering and technology pioneers, whose work inspires others to turn today’s impossibilities into tomorrow’s realities.

IEEE is the trusted source of information from research and standards to conferences and education, and we plan to leverage that trust and curate a new event that demonstrates IEEE’s breadth and reach. We have created a one-day event to showcase the breadth of engineering by bringing together innovators, visionaries, and leaders of technology to discuss what is imminent, to explore what is possible, and what will these emerging areas mean for the future. The 2017 IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit (2017 IEEE VIC Summit) will present a unique opportunity to meet, mingle, and network with peers and some of the top technology “Giants” in the world.

The IEEE VIC Summit and Awards will include dynamic speakers in an interactive setting and culminate with the evening’s festivities that will include the celebration of contributions of some of the world’s most revered innovators, leaders, and legends at the Honors Ceremony. The IEEE Honors Ceremony presents IEEE’s highest-level awards for exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions that have made a lasting impact on technology, society, and the engineering profession.

IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.

Cal Poly Pomona. Engineering Symposium and Showcase @ Cal Poly Pomona
Jun 2 @ 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Engineering Project Symposium & Showcase

June 2, 2017

Cal Poly Pomona
3801 W. Temple Ave.
Pomona, CA 91768

Thank you for your interest in attending the 2017 College of Engineering Project Symposium and Showcase. Please register to confirm your attendance at the upcoming event on Friday, June 2, 2017.


Engineering Symposium

More than 400 students will present over 120 projects and exhibits in simultaneous sessions
Time: 7:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Location: Engineering Buildings 9 & 17

Engineering Showcase

The top undergraduate team projects and exhibits from each of the seven engineering departments will present their efforts to solve multidisciplinary challenges.
Time: 2:00-4:30 p.m.
Location: Cal Poly Pomona, Bronco Student Center, Ursa Major


Hands-On Learning
The Engineering Project Symposium provides an opportunity for students across the college to present their projects for review by faculty, industry representatives, other students, and guests. This is a significant learning experience stressing teamwork, organization, and communication – important elements in an engineering career.

Student Presentations
Presentations showcase the results of individual and team-based efforts to solve multidisciplinary technical challenges. Between 400 and 500 undergraduate and graduate students will present dozens of projects and exhibits in approximately 20 simultaneous sessions. Faculty-mentored projects have been undertaken by students and student teams from our engineering departments: Aerospace, Chemical & Materials, Civil, Electrical & Computer, Industrial & Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, and Electromechanical Engineering Technology. Some projects are interdisciplinary, requiring participation by students across the college and the university. Many projects are sponsored and guided by industry. Projects require planning and most often use a research, prototype, test and document strategy. The pedagogical model is greatly enhanced by an opportunity to summarize a project in a public forum.

Showcase of Projects Videos
Teams of undergraduate students representing 7 academic departments present the results of their efforts to solve multi-disciplinary challenges.
