IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE MSIT is a Student Branch of IEEE, USA established in the year 2009 to edify technical skills in a dexterous manner among the students of MSIT. The main objective laid down at the very beginning was to promote IEEE amongst the students. IEEE MSIT with its aim of “leading the wave of change” aspires to achieve excellence in all its endeavors. The Student Branch is committed to help young undergraduates evaluate their career goals, polish their technical skill set and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network by providing them a plethora of opportunities.
IEEE MSIT has been significant in organizing workshops, short term project initiatives, scientific excursions, lecture Series and competitions since its beginning. IEEE MSIT has conducted many hands-on workshops on robotics and Arduino, web development, and Android amongst others. In this academic session, IEEE MSIT launched the Short Term Project Initiative where students from 1st and 2nd year worked with the 3rd and 4th year students in the field of machine learning, game development using Python, electronics, and robotics for 2 months to gain practical knowledge in their interest area. The flagship event of IEEE MSIT, “Focal Point” has also been extremely successful with eminent speakers and guests such as Dr. Kiran Bedi, First women IPS officer, Mr. Bharat Sethi, Founder of postergully.com, and Ms. Rashmi Anand, famous author and domestic violence survivor who works with the Delhi Police Crime Against Women Cell.
To promote specialized education and awareness amongst the students, IEEE MSIT has 3 Chapters under it- IEEE MSIT Microwave Theory and Technique Society (MTT-s), IEEE MSIT Power and Energy Society (PES), IEEE MSIT Computer Society (CS). IEEE MSIT MTT-s organizes Summer Grant Program (SGP) every year based on the domains of Radio Astronomy and Astrophysics. As part of the SGP, the students have previously worked on projects like NASA Radio Jove, Sudden Ionospheric Disturbance, Itty Bitty Telescope and Meteor Sky wave Detection. Many excursions like ARIES, Nanital and a trip to Microwave lab in DU have been organized by MTT society of IEEE MSIT. IEEE MSIT PES successfully organized the October Projects Week this year where students were mentored by their seniors and worked on projects like door lock system, solar power lightening, and multimeter using Arduino. This week long event culminated with a competition held on IEEE Day, 6th October 2015, and the winners were awarded with a 2 months subscription of JMoon Labs, giving them a chance to work on their own ideas and explore. IEEE MSIT Computer Society covers all the major areas of computing and information technology. It has organized workshops and seminars on Data mining, Networking, Web Development and Augmented reality. This year it organized CodeStart- a competitive programming competition which saw participation in huge numbers.
IEEE MSIT WIE is an affinity group dedicated to promoting women engineers and scientists. As part of STAR (Students, Teachers and Research), IEEE MSIT WIE has organized interactive sessions in schools to impart knowledge about engineering and the STEM field and inspire young children, especially girls, to join it. It has also organized Breast Cancer Awareness session and Self Defense workshops.
In order to make the benefits of IEEE accessible to maximum student members, IEEE MSIT believes in the concept of Special Interest Groups (SIG’s). The 6 SIG’s that are active this year aim at providing an avenue to people with similar interests, enabling them to come together, explore their fields of interest and learn together. The society regularly manages Special Interest Groups namely C/C++, Android App Development, Canvas (Designing), Embedded and Robotics, Full stack web development using Python, and Java to provide a practical edge to the students in an artful manner
Our student members have represented IEEE MSIT Student Branch at various National and International platforms like the IEEE European Microwave Conference held in Paris, France, R10 (Asia Pacific) Student- WIE- YP Congress 2015, Colombo, Sri Lanka, IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies Europe 2014 (ISGT Europe), and All India Student Congress. The efforts and allegiance of the members of IEEE MSIT has been commended by many. IEEE MSIT won the prestigious Darrel Chong Student Activity Award in 2015 and 2013 for organizing laudable and value driven student activities. Dr. Poonam Bansal, Director, MSIT, Immediate Past Branch Counselor, IEEE MSIT and Dr. Vimal Gaur, Reader, CSE Department, Past Branch Counselor won the R10 Outstanding Branch Counselor award in 2015 and 2012 respectively for exemplifying IEEE’s commitment towards technical and professional development of students and for their constant guidance and support which led to the proliferation of IEEE MSIT Student Branch.
IEEE MSIT Student Branch has bequeathed dedication, passion and ardor to its members and the society shall continue this legacy to serve students and hence the institution with utmost zeal and dedication. The vision of the student branch can be aptly defined by the words of Henry Ford
"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."

We learn only by having the will to enquire!
Technocratz, the technical club of MSIT is an initiative to provide the students an open platform to share, discuss and gain knowledge about all that encapsulates the realm of technology. It beholds the ideology of learning together and growing together.
Technocratz was brought into existence in 2002 by the students in order to increase the computer related knowledge of students and to bring practical approach to the concepts studied. The initial agenda was to conduct regular sessions and workshops in college on various topics related to computer science. Under the guidance and support of the convener Ms. Nishtha Jatana (Assistant Professor, CSE department), the club aspires to bring to the students fresh and amazing opportunities to learn.
We yearn to create a hub for the students to explore the world of technology. We also partake in the noble motive of shining the personality of the students through presentations wherein they can present their talk on any technical topic of their interest. Technocratz provides a distinctive opportunity to interact with eminent people from the field of technology through means of a guest talk in every session. This community also acts as a solution provider to any software and academic problems or doubts placed by the students. We also work with the aim to educate the students about the latest technological developments around the world through the section “NewsByte” and various presentations.
Technocratz plans to conduct monthly meetings for the students to meet and share cross domain knowledge. Apart from these we also have a facebook page http://www.facebook.com/technocratz.msit which the students can use as a platform to interact and enquire.
We look forward to a bright future where the students can learn and grow along with Technocratz with every session.

Prakriti, the eco club of MSIT, was founded on 3rd March ,2010, in the wake of need for a college society that aims at promoting and increasing environmental consciousness, awareness and responsibility amongst the college youth and the populace.
As a non profitable society, Prakriti is committed to the belief that solutions are more effective and enduring when they involve mass local participation in planning and implementing projects.
Prakriti also exists to support and strengthen NGOs (such as Goonj) and rural or urban communities (like Lions’ Club) that work towards betterment of the society.
Through its various programs, Prakriti provides college students opportunities to develop problem-solving, decision-making and leadership skills, which enables them to participate in future community developments as engaged and active citizens.
An important part of our growth and motivation as people , lies in contributing to the greater good; being part of something greater than ourselves. So, take the privilege and join hands with us in an attempt to transform our society’s present ecological scenario.
