The Saint Maurice Section was founded in 1954. While officially the smallest Section in the IEEE Eastern Canada Council (ECC), it has been one of the most active.
The Section is affiliated with the "Université du Québec a Trois-Rivières". There have been many joint conferences with the University. Last year alone it held conferences on Computer Network, Nuclear Radiation, Micro-electronics projects, Computer Assisted Engineering and more. An important event for this year was the IEEE-PELS Workshop on Computers in Power Electronics which had participants from 22 countries.
The Student Branch is very active. In 2011, the project "Recycling day" organized by Mr. Sylvain Pratte, will receive the "RAB Rally K. Wilson Regional Student Activity" award at Halifax. The Branch also operates a very successful McNaughton Centre
