Guidelines for Canadian Student Branch Websites

All student branches should have an active web site because the IEEE and others do a lot of business via the internet and your web site is crucial as the information hub to the rest of the world.

The name of your student branch should be CORRECT - some correct examples are: Queen's University IEEE Student Branch, or Niagara College IEEE Student Branch. "IEEE" can be ommitted if a corect IEEE logo is placed beside your branch name, or if the words "Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers" in a small font is placed above or below your branch name.

Overall appearance should be informative while being attractive, graphics and active content (Java, ActiveX, etc.) can be used to enhance appearance but not to cause significant downloading delays (over modem connections) - large graphics (static or dynamic) files - if used - should be placed in pages off the main linking paths.

Information should be current, links should be kept up to date, all pages should contain the date of last revision, the name of the person or entity responsible for the content, and a "mailto" for comments, inquiries, etc.

If you have an IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre, the foundation expects you to also have a distinct Centre site (one or more pages).

Page Content

  • In addition to links and mailtos noted below, content describing your Branch objectives, programs, activities, volunteers, etc. and related department activities are desirable
  • A separate page (or set of pages) describing your McNaughton Centre facilities, programs, history, funding, etc. (including photos) and, under the heading, the phrase "Sponsored by the IEEE Canadian Foundation" with a link to the ICF web site.
  • Examples of innovative ways to communicate with other students locally, within Canada, around the world); or with other people (employers, engineers, and so on) are encouraged. You are urged to create one novel feature or service using Web technology that becomes a centrepiece for your site.
