The IEEE Standards Education e-Magazine is a publication for those who learn, teach, use, deploy, develop, and enjoy standards.

Technical standards are formal documents that establish uniform engineering or technical criteria, methods, processes, and practices developed through an accredited consensus process.

Standards are:

  • Developed based on guiding principles of openness, balance, consensus, and due process
  • Established in order to meet technical, safety, regulatory, societal, and market needs
  • Catalysts for technological innovation and global market competition

Knowledge of standards can help facilitate the transition from classroom to professional practice by aligning educational concepts with real-world applications.

IEEE is committed to:

  • Promoting the importance of standards in meeting technical, economic, environmental, and societal challenges
  • Disseminating learning materials on the application of standards in the design and development aspects of educational programs
  • Actively promoting the integration of standards into academic programs
  • Providing short courses about standards needed in the design and development phases of professional practice

Serving the community of students, educators, practitioners, developers, and standards users, IEEE Standards Education e-Magazine is building a community of standards education for the benefit of humanity.
