One of IEEE’s most active student branches has been the Hamdard Institute of Engineering and Technology (HIET) Student Branch, in Karachi, Pakistan. IEEE student branches are established at universities and colleges around the world to engage students with technical, professional, and IEEE-related activities. The Hamdard student branch formed in March 2001 and has received several recognitions over the past few years for its hard work, including the 2014 IEEE Regional and Exemplary Student Branch. One of its members, IEEE Student Member Utam Prem, received the 2014 Best Karachi Section Student Volunteer of the Year award.
