Santa Clara Valley Section

The Santa Clara Valley (SCV) Section promotes the aims and objectives of the IEEE as stated in the IEEE Constitution and Bylaws. The Section concerns itself with all IEEE affairs taking place within the area prescribed by the IEEE as the territory of the SCV Section that geographically takes in all the peninsula cities south of Highway 92, plus the counties of Monterey, San Benito, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz. The SCV, more popularly known as Silicon Valley, is one of the largest IEEE Section in the world in terms of membership as well as active chapters. IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section inspires Silicon Valley professionals and students to stay connected and to collaborate by creating and providing leadership programs to educate and to stimulate technological innovation, and engineering excellence.

Together with the San Francisco and Oakland East Bay sections we form the  San Francisco Bay Area Council (SFBAC). Several of our chapters are joint across the Bay Area.  If you want to know more contact us or join any of our events see Event Calendar or subscribe to the eGRID newsletter.

IEEE SCV Receives Community Champion Award

For over forty years the Silicon Valley Chapter of IEEE has supported local science fairs by providing judges and awarding prizes.  This year we sent judges to four county science fairs: Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito.  At these fairs we reviewed over 500 technical exhibits, awarded $2300 dollars in prize, and most importantly, spent time discussing projects with student exhibitors in grade level K through 12.

Of special note this year is our participation for the first time in the 2024 San Benito County STEAM Expo, in which over 200 students exhibited projects.  In recognition of our support the San Benito County Office of Education presented IEEE with their “Community Champion” award.  Charlie Neuhauser accepted this award on behalf of IEEE SCV.

Thank you to the volunteering team:  Ken Doniger, Keith Gudger, Carolyn Koenig, Edward Miller, Charles Neuhauser, Ron Nicholson, Wes Ramirez, John Reagan, Umamahesh Srinivas, Lee Tavrow, Srinivas Vennapureddy, Scott Wakefield, and Bob Wedig.  If you are interested and want to join the team contact Charlie Neuhauser.
