Drexel University IEEE S-PAC 2010
Drexel IEEE organized Student Professional Awareness Conference (SPAC) on October 28th
and October 29th at the Bossone Atrium.
Engineers must be proficient, professionally astute, and clearly aware of their responsibility to society. Student Professional Awareness Conferences (S-PACs, pronounced "ess-paks") explore the subjects that affect engineers' careers, regardless of how well engineers prepare themselves technically.
First introduced in 1979, S-PACs are an effective vehicle to transmit the professional awareness that enhances the technical education they receive in engineering school. S-PACs permit students to learn from the varied experience of successful engineers.

Events included a presentation on Humanoid Robot by Dr. Youngmoo Kim, a tour of the Drexel Autonomous Systems LAB (DASL), a presentation on the Future of Robotics by Dr. Kosta Daniilidis, and a presentation on EVX Team Hybrid car Competition. The event ended with the several high school students participating in the robotics arm competition.
