IEEESTEC Student's Projects Conference is organized by the Electrical Engineering Student's European Association (EESTEC) LC Nis, the IEEE Student Branch Nis, and the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Nis and supported by the IEEE Electron Devices (EDS)/Solid-State Circuits (SSC) Chapter, the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT) Chapter, and the IEEE Serbia and Montenegro Section. The conference was created as a result of the cooperation between IEEE SB Nis and EESTEC LC Nis, which is clearly visible in the name of the conference (IEEE + EESTEC = IEEESTEC).

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE has more than 116000 student members organized in 2354 student branches in more than 160 countries. This is a great scientific potential which can be seen in more than 1300 IEEE sponsored conferences in 80 countries all around the world. It is important to note that one of the main goals of IEEE is corporation with similar associations. As a result IEEE-EESTEC Memorandum of Cooperation on the level of Serbia and Montenegro Section was prepared.

EESTEC is an international student organization which gathers all students from electrical engineering and computer science faculties and all the faculties that award the electronics engineer certificate, and has very similar goals as IEEE. The main goal of EESTEC is to encourage the development of international contacts between students and professionals. Exchange of ideas and experiences between students of electronics and computer sciences is possible through workshops, exchanges, conferences, seminars, meetings and other activities. Currently, there are 50 EESTEC local committees in more than 20 European countries with more than 2700 members. Real cooperation between IEEE SB Nis and EESTEC LC Nis is demonstrated on the example of the organization of the IEEESTEC Conference, where both sides are completely satisfied with partnering.
