Spectrum Talk is a brand new initiative of the SB. The talk is delivered by our own student volunteers after a comprehensive study of the Spectrum Magazine each month.

IEEE GECBH joined hands with IEEE APS Kerala Chapter to conduct a one day Seminar on "Fundamentals of Electromagnetic Engineering and its Application" in association with KEYSIGHT Technologies on October 07, 2017 at our college.
Being a part of the IEEE family was indeed one of the most enriching experiences of my college life and one I will cherish forever.The positions of responsibility at IEEE GECBH SB helped me boost my volunteering,communication and managerial skills and inculcated in me the confidence to take up initiatives.
IEEE will be perhaps the only organisation where there are no members but responsible volunteers. Leading a team of dedicated volunteers for quite a long period of time will always remain as one of my greatest achievements. The IEEE GECBH SB is one of the most active SB in the Kerala Section and will always remain so in the years to come.
