Welcome to the Southern Minnesota Section website for members of the IEEE. Here you will find important announcements, calendar of events, information on officers, other units, and useful links. Please use the navigation menu on top to browse the pages.

We are responsible for local activities from Mankato, MN to Tomah, Wi, we have a student section at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota, and the Coulee sub-section in LaCrosse, Wisconsin serving our members in Wisconsin.

We have technical chapters in Computer (Ron Jensen, Chair), Control Systems, Signal Processing and Communications (Richard Cui, Chair) and in Engineering in Medicine and Biology (David R Holmes, Chair). Affinity Groups are Consultants Network (Michael Fallenstein, Chair), Young Professionals (Jonathan Trevathan, Chair) and Life Members (Paul D Ulland and Ron Jensen, Chairs).

We typically meet at Mann Hall in Rochester monthly from January through May and September through November; sometimes more depending on speaker availability.

We can always use help from new volunteers to maintain and improve our activities. If you are interested, please contact one of our officers,

We have initiated a program to support members who wish to attend a technical conference. You can download the request form in Word or PDF format.
