Young Professionals "Boost" Program

The IEEE/OES Young Professionals branch invites you to participate in the leadership of the society by attending the meetings, by being involved in the diverse committees, and by helping with different aspects of the OCEANS conferences.

The IEEE/OES “YP-BOOST” program consists of recruiting 2 new YPs every year, starting on January 1st of the year following the selection, for a total of 4 YPs for a given year when in permanent regime. Those chosen will first attend and participate in OCEANS’19 Marseille, France (June 17-20, 2019).

The duration of this program for each selected candidate is 2 years, corresponding to 4 OCEANS conferences, completely covered financially by OES.

The selected candidates to this program will then develop their relationship with the other professional and student attendees, representing a positive point for your professional career.
