We are thrilled to share the call for IEEE Communications Society (Comsoc) Student Project Competition. This is an incredible opportunity for you to showcase your hard work, creativity, and innovation to the entire academic community. IEEE ComSoc holds this annual student competition with the goal of encouraging communications engineering students to expand their knowledge, test and showcase new skills, and inspire innovation. The winning student (or student team) can earn up to US$2,000. The team leader or individual that wins first prize will be invited to receive the prize at IEEE GLOBECOM 2023.
