2012 was an amazing year for IEEE Portugal Section, ISCTE-IUL and especially for ISTA (ISCTE-IUL School of Technology and Architecture). On the one hand, IEEE Portugal Section was reinforced with the first Portuguese IEEE Student Branch headquartered in the center of Lisbon. On the other hand, ISCTE-IUL now counts with a student branch of the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology. This feeling of achievement and relevance was also expressed by the President of ISTA, Prof. Dr. Francisco Cercas, stating this was an important landmark for the university.
