The IEEE South Africa Section, South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE), the National Science and Technology Forum (NSTF) and the University of Pretoria (UP) invite undergraduate and graduate students to submit essays on the topic "5G and Beyond for South Africa and Africa". The submission must show how 5G is relevant to and can be used in South Africa, our continent, and serve its people's needs. It should also consider the availability of skills and other relevant factors.
5G is expected to offer much faster connectivity and be an enabler and accelerator for industry and Internet of Things applications. There will be four categories of winners, i.e. for male/female graduate students and male/female undergraduate students. Based on the current sponsorship commitments pool, we plan to award the winners and runners-up with prizes of R2 000 and R1 000, respectively.
To be eligible, each applicant must:
· be an undergraduate (3-5 years programme), Masters or PhD student enrolled in electrical engineering or a related field at an accredited institution of higher learning, and
· have the endorsement of a university/college faculty member at the student's institution.
Submission deadline is 15 June 2021.
