History of the SSCET

The Southeast Symposium on Contemporary Engineering Topics was first held in New Orleans in 2009 and setup by the IEEE New Orleans Industry Applications Society Chapter with support from the IEEE New Orleans section and hosted at the University of New Orleans.  The power professors from LSU, MSU, Georgia Tech, and UNO suggested hosting the symposium at the participating universities locations in the Southeast at the dinner following the 1st SSCET. The SSCET began in 2009 with presentations on electrical power engineering with four universities, and the website was hosted on the IEEE New Orleans Section website. In 2011, the SSCET increased to three tracks including Power, Communications, and Electrical and Computer Engineering which was participated in by eight universities and eight companies, and a website domain was obtained for to host the website. In 2012, a Civil and Environmental track was added as well as a student track which was participated in by ten universities, and the website was moved to and maintained by Mississippi State University. In 2013, a Professional Development track, an Engineering Education track, and an Energy Leadership track were added, and Coastal Engineering was added to the Civil and Environmental Engineering track. In 2014, a Naval Engineering track was added, and Controls was added to the Communications track. In 2015, a Chemical and Petroleum Engineering track and a Smart Grid track was added, a STEM round table session was started, and the University of Alabama Huntsville took over maintenance of the SSCET website which is hosted on a server at MSU. In 2016, a Systems Engineering track was added to SSCET.
