Faculty Advisor: Dr. Yufang Jin Department of Electrical Engineering University of Texas at San Antonio One UTSA Circle San Antonio, Texas 78249 Phone: 210-458-5944
2008 – 2009 Planned Expenditures Planned Expenditures for Academic Year: 2008 - 2009 ~$9400.00 Parts Bin: ~$1500.00Lab I/Lab II Kits (plus spare parts) ~$400.00IEEE T-shirts Circuit Design Team: ~$500.00 (Includes parts and travel accommodations) Robotics Team: ~$1000.00 (Includes parts and electronics)
2008 – 2009 Planned Expenditures General Meetings: ~$500.00(Refreshments and Snacks offered) Office Supplies: ~$500.00 R5 Competition Trip: ~$3000.00 UTSA IEEE Scholarship: ~$1500.00 Miscellaneous Tours, Fundraisers & Competitions: ~$500.00 Notable Changes: We have decided to increase spending on more educational type resources, such as the tutoring lab, robotics and circuit-design teams as well as more tours mostly to increase interest amongst the student body not only in our organization, but also in the field of Electrical Engineering
2007-08 Summary Meetings Few Guest Speakers Overall attendance increased Officer Elections Region 5 Competition: Received donations from EE Dept. and faculty Robotics Team Scheduled Meetings and practices Attendance increase particularly in underclassmen Placed 2 nd overall Activities: Collaborated with MAES and all other engineering organizations for AT&T Tech Day Hosted IEEE Computer Society Meeting Collaborated with ASCE for paintballing Video game drive for overseas troops $1,000 Scholarship Collaborated with Dr. Chen to start EE Student Council
Region 5 Conference Robotics Team: Restructured, goal oriented, motivated RESULT: Placed 2 nd overall OUTLOOK: A few will be graduated, but we had many underclassman on the team, so they will serve as replacements Circuit Design Team: RESULT: Unable to send a team this year PLAN: Will use same approach based on success of for the Robotics Team. OUTLOOK: We intend to send a team this year Student Paper: RESULT: She was unable to attend last year OUTLOOK: Promote and encourage student body
Fall 2008 Overlook Scheduled General Meetings Monthly Officer Meetings Weekly Circuit Design Meetings Weekly Robotics Meetings Scheduled Status Reports and Practices of participants of paper competition Officer Elections: December 5, 2008
General Meetings Discuss upcoming events: Plan Tours Discuss Competitions Plan and Discuss Possible Fundraisers One guest speaker will be present every other meeting to share their experience with engineering life Provide food and refreshments Open up the floor to hear suggestions from other members.
Upcoming Projects Roadrunner Days Region 5 Conference Robotics Team Circuit Design Team Paper Competition Leadership Conference SPAC Tours Fundraisers/Picnics
Roadrunner Days IEEE will be present at Roadrunner Days; an assembly sponsored by UTSA for incoming underclassmen to allow them to experience college life as well as meet with the different organizations IEEE will use this event with the goal to enhance interest of Electrical Engineering as well as our organization to the new students with the hope of increasing our members both in our IEEE branch as well as membership in our Robotics and Circuit Design Teams We would hand out: fliers, t-shirts, pencils, show them robots and circuits our teams have built, talk about upcoming events, as well as on location registering to IEEE.
EE Student Council/Scholarship First Time for Both EE Student Council Representative for each class including IEEE, HKN, Faculty, and Dr. Chen Scholarship $1500 Must be a EE declared major Our branch will pay their membership fee for first year if aren’t so already
Issues Region 5 Leg Work Budgeting errors Bad Planning Reasons: A lot of us were new officers Transition stuff: office access, band acct. info. Etc OUTLOOK: We will learn from past struggles and move on from there
Conclusion Major success for Robotics Team at R5 More funding will be put toward R5 Competition Continue Scholarship Partake in more collaboration Projects: With other on-campus Engineering Organizations With other IEEE Branches
