IEEE LINK (Local Integrated Network of IEEE Students) is an innovative concept that originated in IEEE Kerala Section, aimed at networking student branches in an effective way, thereby increasing the value in IEEE Student membership. Since its inception in 2005, LINK has achieved tremendous results, causing an exponential increase in student branches and student activities in IEEE Kerala Section. The model of IEEE LINK was adopted by IEEE Region 10 as R10 GINI (Global Integrated Network of IEEE Students).
IEEE LINK shall serve as a body uniting different student branches, and further help in the sustainability of each student branches, thus adding value to IEEE student membership.
Act as a conjunctive body, ensemble the student Branches coming under its geographical span. Spread the value of IEEE throughout its geographical span.
Today IEEE LINK serves as a platform for students to interact and unify, and has generated several productive programs. The five-fold increase in the student membership of IEEE Kerala Section in a span of 5 years, speak volumes of the success of IEEE LINK. The success of IEEE LINK prompted R10 to introduce GINI (Global Integrated Network of IEEE) – an adaptation of IEEE LINK for R10 student branches.
