IEEE NITK Global View

The IEEE NITK Student Branch is one of the largest student branches in the IEEE Bangalore Section. The IEEE Bangalore Section is governed by the IEEE India Council, which falls under Region 10 of the IEEE Global Organization.

IEEE Bangalore Section


IEEE Bangalore Section was established in 1977 and is one of the most vibrant and dynamic IEEE sections across the globe. Over the years, the strength of the section has grown steadily, and currently, the Section membership stands around 10,000. This membership is spread across various sectors and is a nice blend of Industry, Academia, and Research organizations. Section Conducted 900+ Technical Activities in the year 2018, 1000+ Technical Activities in the year 2019, and 1400+ Technical Activities in the year 2020, with the help of Student branches and society chapters. IEEE Bangalore Section won the prestigious MGA Outstanding Large Section Award (2013 & 2019) and the R10 Distinguished Large Section Award for the year 2013.

IEEE Mangalore Subsection


IEEE Mangalore Subsection (MSS) was established on July 10, 2013, under the aegis of IEEE Bangalore Section. With a membership of over 1750 individuals, of which 80% are students, MSS is dedicated to supporting the knowledge and training needs of its student members. Through regular events such as distinguished lectures, project and paper competitions, workshops, monthly technology series, and various educational activities, MSS strives to empower students with valuable learning opportunities. MSS oversees 19 active student branches and several society chapters/affinity groups, enabling students and professional members to stay updated in their respective domains of interest.
