Contributing leaders to society
The arrival of man on the moon, the invention of the Intel 4004 Microprocessor, the launch of Telstar I and The first television transmission via satellite were some of the events that marked a very important decade for our society and it was this same one on which our branch was founded.
The lead manager of this work was Professor Kazys Gabriunas, born in Lithuania in 1911, who as first counselor teacher, worked on behalf of the Branch, both in its administrative part and its operative part, encouraging students, led for that was its first president, now engineer Marco GV, to participate in various activities.
At the beginning of the 1980s, the closure of the District University of Bogotá led the Committee members to manage the academy outside the classroom, and continue to operate, despite the closure of the university.
Over fifty years, the branch has worked directly in the formation of new Student Branches (UPTC Sogamoso, Universidad El Bosque, Universidad Sur Colombiana USCO, Escuela Colombiana de Ingeniería, among others) and has remained in force in the context of national and regional IEEE.
