IEEEXtreme Hackathon

IEEEXtreme is a global programming competition where teams of IEEE Student members compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems. Students work in teams of 3(grads or undergrads). You must be a national IEEE member to compete, but we can fund your membership with advance notice of interest.

General Body Meetings, Tours, and Social Events

IEEE is proud to host several incredible speakers from companies in all industry sectors to visit the

campus and interact with UIC students. GBMs are where you can learn about internship and full-time opportunities,

get resumes collected, and network. IEEE also hosts social events with other engineering organizations to

help our members de-stress, make new friends, and have fun!

To find out when these events take place, visit our calendar.


IEEE strives to give any and all students the necessary knowledge to begin building and designing projects in different engineering disciplines. We hold workshops throughout the semester that focus on beginner material such as introductions to  Arduino microcontrollers, Raspberry Pi micro-computers, proper soldering techniques, circuit design, and so much more!
