The IEEE Buenaventura Meetup Group is the gathering place of the IEEE Buenaventura Section (http://www.ieee-bv.org/) and its ten chapters. We are very active. Our events are open to anyone interested in advances in technology that benefit the well being of humanity, IEEE members or non-members. Our group is a non-profit 401(c)3 organization. Most of our events are free of charge. We organize more than 50 speaker talks each year.
The mission of our IEEE Buenaventura Section is to:
• Align great speakers to make it convenient for engineers/scientists/technical educators from Ventura County to remain relevant about advances in their field. We cover the following engineering areas of expertise: aerospace, communications, biology and medicine, electronic devices, circuitry systems, microwave, robotics, automation process, and photonics/imaging.
• Organize technical literacy events (STEM events) for for middle schools, high schools and colleges in Ventura County
• Present Entrepreneurship workshops to help the technical inventor set up his own startup.
• Create Networking events to align graduates with employers or professionals in transition with potential opportunities.
Note: The IEEE Buenaventura Section is the local volunteer representation of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a large technical society in the world, with over 400,000 members. About 1,000 IEEE members live or work in Ventura County.
