Ignite is one of the iconic annual flagship events conducted by Women in Engineering (WIE) wing of the IEEE Travancore Hub. It is a renowned event among the IEEE Kerala Section activities, as it focuses purely on the development female student members. Ignite is the opportunity provided by IEEE Travancore Hub to allow their student members to communicate, and interact with other participants, speakers and volunteers.
Ignite introduces students to the variety of opportunities provided by IEEE, in terms of technical skills. The students receive valuable experience and advice from distinguished guests and speakers, who are also women that are accomplished in their respective careers. Along with talks, a series of workshops are also conducted which allows students to improve upon their technical skills, which in turn boosts their self-confidence and thinking abilities. The end goal of Ignite is to provide its student members the chance to interact with like-minded and powerful women who are successful, thereby inspiring and motivating students to follow their lead.Ignite is the annual WIE congress of IEEE Travancore Hub. It is to be conducted as a two day event consisting of women centric events, both technical and general.
IEEE activities in Kerala were formally initiated on 17 February 1975 as a subsection under the then India section. Kerala subsection became part of the Bangalore Section in 1976 upon formation of India Council, and later, it became a full Section in 1983.
From the outset, IEEE Kerala Section has been noted for its vibrant activities. Several innovations from IEEE Kerala Section in organizing activities for students as well as professionals were appreciated and replicated by the global IEEE community. Winner of Region 10 (Asia Pacific) Outstanding Large Section Award in 2004 and 2009, IEEE Kerala Section has been organizing high quality, high impact technical events including several international conferences in the recent past.
Two areas that Kerala Section has been especially noted are Student Activities and Humanitarian Activities. Kerala Section’s interventions in the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami was widely noticed within IEEE circles, and was perhaps a factor in IEEE adopting the new tagline “Advancing Technology for Humanity” in 2009.

"It was a great pleasure for UKF family to be the host of the prestigious event - IEEE WiE Ignite 3.0 last year and it was a cherishing experience indeed to be a speaker. It was a life time opportunity for all the students who were part of it. It was a 240+ vibrant and enthusiastic crowd including a wonderful Group of dedicated volunteers. I definitely felt the program had helped in improving the skill set and creating a Positive vibe of the students. Wishing Ignite 4.0 to keep up the vibe and to be a successful event."
