Technical standards are formal documents that establish uniform engineering or technical criteria, methods, processes and practices developed through an accredited consensus process.
Recognizing the important role standards play within the engineering, technology and computing fields, IEEE is providing resources to help introduce and teach undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professors and educators, about technical standards by providing free online tutorials and case studies. Knowledge of standards can help facilitate the transition from classroom to professional practice by aligning educational concepts with real-world applications.
These resources will hopefully be of use in the classroom and help incorporate the teaching of standards into curricula to:
We are actively seeking subject matter experts in various technical areas to create new Tutorials and Case Studies demonstrating the application of standards. IEEE honorariums are now available.

If you are an educator currently teaching technical standards as part of a course and are willing to share your lesson plans, please contact the IEEE Standards Education Committee.
