Student branches are crucial to the growth and development of IEEE Student members. They create a local network of students and give students the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow students, as well as faculty members and professionals in the field.

Student branches offer numerous educational, technical, and professional advantages to IEEE Student members through the special projects, activities, meetings, tours, and field trips. However, these activities and advantages aren’t done without the effort, labor, and diligence of volunteers. The IEEE Italy Section creates the Exemplary Student Award to recognize and reward the efforts of these tireless individuals and teams.
