Initiated by 2020 IEEE President Toshio Fukuda and the IEEE 2020 IEEE Board Ad Hoc Committee on Lifelong Learning and Continuing Education, the IEEE Academies are designed to teach in-demand technical concepts in a new way to IEEE members working in industry. The IEEE Academies are a new learning format at IEEE that will help members understand a technical concept without needing a deep background in that technology. This will ensure they understand the fundamental concepts so they can apply them in the context of their general work and technical needs.
- IEEE Academies have been developed primarily for members who work in industry and need to understand new technical trends quickly so they can apply them to their work.
- Concepts are presented in a simple and easy-to-understand manner and won’t require a deep prerequisite knowledge of the subject.
- Learners are guided through a logical continuous learning path that better ties the concepts and materials together.
- At the completion of an IEEE Academy, the learner will be able to demonstrate a new understanding and earn a certificate recognizing the new knowledge.
