Learning Workshops

Over the next few weeks we have several learning workshops planned. Below are the summaries of what they will be teaching. Extra information for times, dates and contact info are on the learning workshops page. Be sure to check it out, as some workshops have extra instructions that need to be completed beforehand!

Git and Github Training Session

This session will cover the basics of using git and GitHub. Git is a version control software that makes saving your old code and reverting changes much easier. GitHub is a remote location to store your code and collaborate with other people through merging and code reviews. The session will cover only command line tools, so familiarity with the command line is helpful. Will be held on Friday, September 30th at 6:00 pm in Physics 223. This is the session for ECE students to attend.

EAGLE Training Session

This training session will cover the basics of EAGLE, an electrical board schematic and layout tool. The training session is split into three parts, that will teach how to create schematics, board layouts, and parts. No prior knowledge is required. The first session will be held this Thursday, in Physics 203 at 6:30 PM.

SolidWorks Training Session

Learn the basics of 3D modeling with one of the most widely utilized software’s in industry, SolidWorks! This introductory series will cover basic parametric modeling with a focus on best practices so that you can create better, more robust models. The training session is split into three parts, with the first session being held this Wednesday, in Physics 022 at 6:30 PM.

CATIA Training Session

This training session will provide a basic overview of CATIA, a CAD software often used in the automotive, aerospace, and other heavy industries. We will delve into the basics of the software, so that members can become familiar with the software and gain a greater understanding of CAD in general. No prior knowledge is necessary. A few take-home projects will be given.

Introduction to Microcontrollers

This training session will go over the basics of microcontrollers. It will go into the basics of writing code to work for Arduinos, what you can and can't do with an Arduino, and how to set up different hardware to connect devices to your Arduino.

What we do

Purdue IEEE

Purdue IEEE is devoted to technical achievements and social events. The Purdue chapter of the IEEE is split into several committees. Each committee is focused on a different goal, but all of them strive to further their technical achievements. In addition to the technical aspects, we are also a social organization. We hold events for our members to meet and greet each other and members of other organizations.

Computer Society

The IEEE Computer Society. They recently reunited with Purdue IEEE. They hold education sessions, do small projects, and provide web services for many different organizations on campus. Their site is at csociety.org. Check there for updates!


The IEEE EMBS (Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society) focuses on the development and application of engineering concepts and methods to provide new solutions to biological, medical, and healthcare problems while also providing its members the ability to learn skills and gain experience beneficial throughout the rest of their careers.


IEEE MTT-S (Microwave Theory & Techniques Society) holds events to further the understanding and applications of microwave circuits. The growth of communications around us relies on the continued development of high-frequency technologies that students here develop.


Purdue Aerial Robotics Team IEEE creates an unmanned aerial system (UAS) to compete in AUVSI SUAS Competition. The end goal is to develop an autonomous system complete with a Ground Control Station (GCS). They are looking for members to help design the airframe, develop autopilot and image processing algorithms, and design electrical hardware such as flight controllers and other PCBs.


ROV (Remotely Operated underwater Vehicle) designs and builds an ROV to compete in the MATE (Marine Advanced Technology Education) International ROV Competition each year. They are looking for members to model designs in 3D, restore old vehicles, and assemble next year's vehicle.


Racing builds an electric go-kart to compete in evGrandPrix at Purdue and at the Indy Motor Speedway. They are looking for members to redesign some systems, help get sponsors for new batteries, further improve safety features, and investigate more efficient motors.
