ATLANTA and WASHINGTON, March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Penton's International Wireless Communication Expo (IWCE) and the Association of Federal Communications Consulting Engineers (AFCCE) are partnering to bring Elaine Khuu, a Virginia Tech undergraduate student, to IWCE 2016, the premier annual event for communications technology professionals, through the AFCCE scholarship program. IWCE 2016 takes place March 21-25, 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Khuu, who is studying communications engineering, is one of four 2016 AFCCE scholarship recipients. The AFCCE offers scholarships to engineering students interested in pursuing careers in telecommunications. IWCE is offering Khuu a travel award as well as a premium package conference registration, which includes IWCE's College of Technology, Short Courses, admission to the Exhibit Hall and networking opportunities with industry leaders.
"With so much technology overlapping, especially with spectrum and interference considerations, we were excited to work with the AFCCE to bring in their members to the event to discuss these issues and many more that affect all organizations in the communications technology industry," said Stacey Orlick, Director of Community and Conference Content, IWCE. "Additionally, by bringing Elaine and other students like her to IWCE we open our industry to new, young talent, while also expanding our audience. We are very pleased to be working with AFCCE."
The goal of the AFCCE scholarships is to provide financial assistance to students majoring in engineering or science and related to the telecommunications field. Since 2006, AFCCE has awarded on average over $20,000 annually in scholarship funds. To learn more about the AFCCE scholarship program, visit: https://afcce.org/scholarships/
