Ethics Competition

IEEE Region 5 Student Ethics Competition

The Student Ethics Competition is jointly sponsored by IEEE Region 5 and the IEEE Ethics and Member Conduct Committee.  It encourages the study and awareness of professional ethics.  Each team must analyze the ethical situation, prepare a 10 Minute PowerPoint presentation of their analysis of the situation and makes recommendation for actions to be taken based on the IEEE Code of Ethics.  The teams will also defend their analysis and recommendations during a 5 minute Q&A period.

Eligibility: The Student Circuit Design Competition invites the Student Branches and Eta Kappa Nu Chapters at universities throughout the region to send one, two-member undergraduate team to compete in the competition.  The students must register for the IEEE Region 5 Student Conference and must be a current or pending IEEE or IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu membership.  There is no additional cost beyond student conference registration and IEEE membership.  Team substitutions are at the discretion of the competition chair.  Only one team is allowed from each IEEE Student Branch or IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu Chapter due to space limitations.

Space is limited so that competition registration will close when the available space for ten (10) teams is filled. The first team to register from each student branch will have priority unless otherwise designated by the branch counselor. Other teams from the same student branch will be allowed as space permits.
