ieee standards education mission
IEEE Standards Education Mission
  • Promote the importance of standards in meeting technical, economic, environmental, and societal challenges.
  • Secure and disseminate learning materials on the application of standards in the design and development aspects of educational programs.
  • Secure and provide short courses about standards needed in the design and development phases of professional practice.
  • Actively promote the integration of standards into academic programs.
importance of standards education
Importance of Standards Education
  • Standards education recognizes the key role standards play within the engineering, technology and computing fields.
  • Knowledge of standards can help facilitate the transition from classroom to professional practice by aligning educational concepts with real-world applications.
    • Facilitate Communication
    • Uniformity for Professional Tasks
    • Foundation/Framework for Innovation
    • Product Quality and Interoperability

ieee standards education grants
IEEE Standards Education Grants
  • Grants for Student Application Papers Applying Industry Standards
    • To support undergraduate and graduate design projects, or development/research projects, in which industry technical standards are applied to complete the project.
    • Students receive US $500
    • Faculty mentors receive US $300 honorariums.
  • Proposal and final report must illustrate how specific standards were applied to a task in the project.
    • Final papers describe how standards impacted the design process.
    • Approved final papers are posted as Student Application Papers.
  • More information and to apply:
