Where Students and Young Professionals
Come to Connect and be Inspired

As the premiere student event within IEEE Region 6, The Rising Stars conference brings together the most promising students and young professionals from within the region to network and be inspired by each other and the top tech companies from around the world. It will be taking place  the first week in January, 2016 at the Excalibur in Las Vegas, Nevada. This conference is in conjunction with Storage Visions as well as the Consumer Electronics Showcase which both occur just after the conference.


“The Rising Stars Conference is a  great opportunity for any young engineer. At this conference, I had a chance to network with a lot of great engineers, both present and future. Talking to all these great engineers allowed me the opportunity to work at Northrop Grumman for a summer internship. Due to that internship, I have a job offer before I even graduate! For any young engineer thinking of attending , I would give them a resounding “Do It!”. I can guarantee that you won’t regret it. ” – Joe Fercho, 2015 Attendee
