IEEE Industry Unsolved (previously called the IEEE Industry Night) is IEEE’s annual flagship networking event that started back in 2013!
This event is made for so that the electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering students have the opportunity to interact with industry professionals over a 3-course dinner. In the past years IEEE Ryerson has invited various Keynote Speakers and Industry Guests to speak to the students about their career and future prospects.
The professionals invited to Industry Unsolved are currently working in tech companies related to the electrical, computer or biomedical fields, and have first hand experience to help the students in their professional transition. We were honoured to have industry guests from some of the most advanced tech companies in Canada including Google/Zoom.ai, Microsoft, Siemens, AMD, Hydro One, IEEE Toronto, Bombardier, Patriot One, Bionik Labs, Sunnybrook Health Sciences, West Park Healthcare Centre, Alstom, Hatch, Ikos Consulting, and Centre of Urban Energy.
During the event students are engaged in round table conversations with the professionals to learn about the work they do, the paths they have taken, and tips on becoming the engineers of tomorrow. The night ends with door prizes for lucky students and appreciation gifts for the professionals.
The IEEE Industry Unsolved is the biggest event IEEE Ryerson holds each year! The guest are always enthusiastic to answer the students questions or share their own stories on achieving the jobs they have today. We really enjoy holding this event each year, and hope that we can continue to help ease the students’ transition into the professional field!
