1 August 2022 – Aerospace Electronic Systems (AES) Chapter for IEEE ACT Section
Congratulations to Dr Lily Qiao from UNSW Canberra for establishing the Aerospace Electronic Systems (AES) Chapter for IEEE ACT Section! Thanks to the members of the Aerospace Electronic Systems Chapter. The AES chapter could not be established without your support.
ACT (Australian Capital Territory) is the driving force behind Australia’s aerospace industry. It has the infrastructure, business, research strengths and education system to support civil, commercial and defence aerospace applications. Given the importance of aerospace to Australia and the work, we do not want to miss the opportunity that appears to ACT.
With the launch of our Aerospace and Electronic Systems chapter, we can have better communication and host more local activities, such as guest speakers, workshops, seminars, and social functions. Forming this chapter provides opportunities for our members to attend technical presentations, local networking for personal and professional growth, share technical, professional and personal interests with others, and make a positive distinction in IEEE members’ jobs and careers.
