What we're about

Welcome! We are the Princeton / Central Jersey Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE / PCJS). We hold regular meetings on a variety of subjects, covering topics in science and engineering, information technology, and professional development.

This is a group for engineers, Information Technology (IT) folks, students, and anybody interested in pushing the envelope of our modern, tech-driven world. Sponsored by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), our meetings are open to all.

Our meetings are open to the public, and free of charge, unless otherwise noted. You need not be an IEEE member to attend.

Our chapters and groups include:
• Antennas and Propagation / Electronic Devices / MicrowaveTheory and Techniques
• Broadcast Technology
• Circuits and Systems
• Consumer Electronics and Communications
• Computer Society (joint chapter with Princeton ACM (http://princetonacm.acm.org/))
• Engineering in Medicine and Biology
• IEEE Education Society
• Photonics
• Power and Energy Society
• Robotics and Automation
• Signal Processing
• Solid-State Circuits Society
• Professional Activities Committee for Engineers (PACE)
• Young Professionals
• Consultants Network
• Women in Engineering

...and student branches at:
• The College of New Jersey
• Princeton University
• Rutgers University
• DeVry University - North Brunswick
• Middlesex County College
• Pre-University Student Branches

Last year, the IEEE Princeton / Central Jersey Section's Broadcast Technology Chapter received substantial funding for our Make Operating Radio Easier (MORE) Project. The ambitious goals of the 2-year MORE Project are: to train and license 500 new U.S. Radio Amateurs; to examine and explore various types of radio signals, such as by using Software Defined Radio (SDR); and to help our new Hams learn basic communications protocols by observing and participating in HF and VHF operations.

Involvement with Amateur ("Ham") Radio is often credited as leading to a variety of STEM careers, as aspects of each of the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are among the topics that radio operators need to know, not only to obtain their licenses, but also to use (and even design and build) radio-related equipment. Hams enjoy contesting, meeting others on the air, and promoting good-will. They also provide essential weather reporting and other communications services during local and international disasters.

The MORE Project grant covers the initial training, testing and licensing fees for our participating students. Those who successfully license will receive a hand-held 2 Meter (HT) radio and will be assisted in Getting On The Air (GOTA) activities to make radio contacts.

STUDENTS: We are currently accepting students of ALL ages (12+) and genders, but are especially seeking youth (ages 12-18) and non-males, in order to increase their representation in the amateur radio community.

GROUPS: Have your leader contact us to arrange training for STEM clubs, scouting groups, emergency preparedness teams, societies and lodges, senior centers, and other educational or recreational activity organizations.

TRAINERS and VEs: We have an ongoing need for FCC-licensed amateur radio operators, at the General level or above, who are certified as Volunteer Examiners (or would like to earn this certificate), to assist with teaching and testing.

Full details about the MORE Project, and application instructions for all categories, can be found online at http://n2re.org/m-o-r-e-project

APPLY NOW! Registration (see above link) is open.
