Conference Details

What is Illumination?

Illumination is a conference organized by the University of Saskatchewan IEEE Student Branch to educate students about industry and career choices through informational and inspirational speakers, workshops and corporate networking.  Illumination has been running annually since 2003 and has been growing ever since.

The IEEE is the largest professional technical society in the world and its greatest resource is the people graduating tomorrow. Illumination focuses on the interpersonal and soft skills that new graduates need to succeed in industry. These are vital skills, which unfortunately are rarely taught in engineering and technical schools.

The conference also enables students to meet and interact with industry professionals and learn about companies in their area of interest. Illumination is a unique conference that further develops engineering students’ skills and prepares them for life after graduation.

Why should I attend?

The transition from school to industry is a big leap and Illumination can help students get an idea of what to expect and what they can do with their degree after graduating. The conference also gives students the opportunity to meet and converse with students and industry professionals within their degree of study.
