The University of South Florida, USA, and the University of Nairobi, Kenya jointly welcome Ms. Kathy Land to discuss Engineering Careers and the power of IEEE.

The IEEE Region 3 Florida West Coast Section (FWCS) student branch at the University of South Florida is building a historic collaboration with the University of Nairobi student branch of the Kenya Section in Region 8.

Student leaders from both universities have been meeting remotely over recent months, with the support of their respective section officers, to develop an agenda that will strengthen and broaden both student groups.

In this video, the student branches and their sections jointly hosted a virtual event. The University of Nairobi and the University of South Florida are pleased to invite students and members from across Region 3 and Region 8 to join them for a presentation by Susan Kathy Land, IEEE Past President.

In an event that demonstrates the impact of IEEE Women in Engineering, student branch chairs and co-hosts Grace Perkins and Mukami Njeru introduce Ms. Land, who discusses engineering careers and the power of IEEE.

In the new semester, after the April event, the student branches are planning for an international collaboration focused on the robotics teams of both schools. Early planning discussions include each team developing controller software that can be shipped to the other team’s hardware for execution. A Discord server has been set up for this collaboration, which also includes students from the University of Cape Town student branch in the South Africa Section.

This student collaboration has broad impacts beyond just the jointly hosted speaking event. Kenya Section members recently participated in the Region 3 Senior Member Roundup, including one Kenya Section member who was successfully nominated and referenced by the Region 3 Senior Member Elevation Committee, and there are early discussions about potential summer visits to Tampa by University of Nairobi students.
