The SSCET was first held at the University of New Orleans (UNO) in 2009. It was organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) New Orleans Industry Applications Society Chapter with support from the IEEE New Orleans section. At a dinner following the first SSCET, electrical power professors from Louisiana State University, Mississippi State University, Georgia Tech, and UNO agreed that participating universities in the Southeast would host the symposium going forward. In 2013, UNO recommended that the SSCET host university simultaneously hold a university engineering forum for their students, alumni, and the local engineering community.
