Professional Activities


Professional Activities Sub-Committee (PASC) is part of IEEE R8 Member Activities. The PASC team is aiming to increase the understanding and acceptance of Professional Activities (PA in short) within Region 8 by providing support and expertise to sections, chapters, societies and student branches within the region.

 

Professional Activities focus on maintaining and enhancing lifelong employability and career maintenance, while providing advice to and collaboration with public bodies, corporations, NGOs and non-profits to benefit the members, their fields of practice, and the general public, while continuing to promote ethical conduct.
