The IEEE Canadian Atlantic Section (R7) works to facilitate relations between Higher Grade members and Student members. The Section's fall Student Branch event is open to all members, and the Section always organizes talks by Higher Grade members on the Engineering profession so Student members can "Meet an Engineer.” IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) held a social event to allow Student members to meet members from industry. Many technical events were held at the University to encourage interaction between Higher Grade members and Student members. The Canadian Atlantic Section is also heavily involved in the Annual Student Paper Competition, where they present awards to the top three presenters before sending the finalist on to the National IEEE Student Paper Competition. At this event, students not only get judged by professional members of IEEE from industry, but also get a chance to interact with the members in an informal session after the competition is over.
