I joined IEEE as a freshman at the University of Dayton, FL, USA in order to learn more about the engineering field and, since then, IEEE has provided opportunities to learn and network through various IEEE publications and local activities as well as participate in technical conferences,” said Jason Fritz, who served as Chapter Chair of IEEE’s Signal Processing Society (SPS).
Fritz has donated to EPICS in IEEE “because of its mission of giving students a platform to work with engineering professionals to develop solutions that transform communities across the globe,” he said. “It’s at the community level where impact really happens and at the student level where IEEE can help foster the ingenuity of the next generation of electrical engineers to benefit humanity by contributing directly. I’m hoping that my donation can provide some resources to directly support student projects and help students see the benefits of the Electrical Engineering field and eventually transition after graduation,” he said.
“While technology holds great promise to help people in developing regions of the world, that technology doesn’t develop itself – it requires men and women from around the world and from all walks of life to contribute, innovate and deliver the technological process that has transformed our planet,” Fritz said. “IEEE plays a central role in developing current and next-generation professionals in order to continue this pursuit, and contributing to IEEE financially and/or by volunteering will help the organization achieve those goals.”
