The IEEE Students and Young Professionals Congress is the largest student event in Jordan. It occurs yearly and gathers both students and young professionals members from all of the Jordan Section. The first edition was held in 2012, and the scale of the event has been growing ever since, attracting more attendees, worldwide known speakers, and more national and international companies and organizations supporting it. The primary goal of the JSYP Congress is to enhance and foster the engineering sense and capabilities through different activities, exchanging experience and knowledge between young professionals and students from different parts of Jordan. The social activities during the Congress are a great networking opportunity to start national collaborations. Another goal is to provide the opportunity for students and the industry to get in touch with each other, so decisions or plans for a career, later on, can be made and guidance and advice for students can be given. Participants can take advantage of the event program tailored to the core goals of IEEE, focusing personal and professional growth altogether expanding their IEEE network of contacts and friendships.
The JSYP 2018 will be hosted by Al-Balqa Applied University , under the patron of Prof. Adel Altwiesi.
