OPS Applications Are Closed!

IEEE UCI - Open Project Space

OPS is a year-long program held by IEEE geared toward giving undergraduate students an opportunity to get hands-on experience with embedded systems. The program is made up of:

  • 4 projects in the Fall
  • 3 projects in the Winter
  • 1 capstone project in the Spring

These projects cover a wide range of topics, starting from the basics of building a circuit and progressing to working with Arduinos and PCB Design.
