Miguel Piñeiro, E.E. - Electrical Engineer, B.S. from Florida International University Currently I am pursuing a Master’s degree from PUPR in Communications Systems. Since January I have been working as a full time employee at PUPR as the Lab Technician in the Plasma Lab. This August I will begin writing a thesis, focusing in Plasma Research. This past year, I served as vice-president of IEEE where we arranged several field trips, technical seminars, and proposals. As the leader of your branch I will organize many more technical seminars, field trips, and will begin to train students for the engineering industry. I will integrate the professional IEEE chapter with of our branch, and provide many networking opportunities with industry leaders. As your leader I will make sure that each one of you is satisfied with your branch, and its accomplishments. 2011 ANNUAL IEEE ELECTION CANDIDATES

Introduce new ideas and proposals and implement initiatives for new activities within the membership responsibilities.
Develop non-technical IEEE activities in the Region (including contests, awards and promotion programs). Support Region 9 initiatives and inform other IEEE organizational units about them. Show members the technology currently being used in the engineering field through professional visits. For example: Arecibo Observatory and Hewlett Packard, among many others. Provide training and orientations for PUPR members through shared activities and workshops by creating alliances with other societies, such as: SHPE, ASME, CIAPR, PRMA. Bring technical speakers from top engineering industry companies. Incorporate students into research currently being done by professors.
Integrate students in proposals, publishing papers and research projects. Some of which will be presented in international conferences. Re-open the IEEE Computer Society. Participate in activities from the professional chapter, such as: conventions, CIAPR’s event, international and local seminars, and competitions, among others. Generate networking opportunities with industry leaders. Above all, make the chapter work for its members so that everyone can benefit from its success.
