Education

IEEE is a leader in engineering and technology education, providing resources for pre-university, university, and continuing professional education.

IEEE continuing education courses


Find courses in the latest technologies and career development skills to help you advance in your career by visiting the IEEE Learning Network (ILN).

Pre-university STEM education programs


IEEE STEM education programs introduce young students to engineering and technology to help them see themselves in STEM careers. They provide resources that help teachers bring engaging engineering activities into their classrooms.

IEEE university education programs


University programs from IEEE offer faculty members resources for pedagogical and career development, while also providing opportunities for university engineering students to excel in their education while serving others.

Virtual IEEE educational events


IEEE offers educational virtual events for practicing professionals, faculty, and students on a variety of engineering topics. Many of these events are offered free of charge and are available for live broadcast or on-demand afterward.

Offer IEEE Certificates at your next event


IEEE certificates, many of which offer PDHs and CEUs, help engineers maintain professional licenses and demonstrate a commitment to professional development. See how to offer IEEE certificates at your organization's next learning event through the IEEE Certificates Program.

Get industry-ready with IEEE IoT and VLSI courses


These industry-reviewed courses are designed to impart skills to help you become an in-demand professional.

University education resources

University programs from IEEE are designed to enhance the quality of university-level engineering programs by ensuring that students have the resources needed to succeed academically, and faculty members have opportunities for pedagogical and career development.

  • ABET Accreditation: Engineering education accreditation provides university engineering programs with a credential that assures that graduates meet the quality standard for the profession and are prepared to practice. By participating in the accreditation of engineering programs through ABET, IEEE and its volunteers have a voice in determining the threshold set of knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for successful entry into engineering, computing, and technology fields.
  • EPICS in IEEE: A signature program of the IEEE Foundation and IEEE Educational Activities that organizes university and high school students to work on engineering-related projects with local community organizations. Students learn to solve problems in communities worldwide through service learning, while at the same time improving the quality of life for the people living there.
  • IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN): IEEE-HKN, the honor society of IEEE, encourages and recognizes individual excellence in education and meritorious work, in professional practice, and in any of the areas within the IEEE-designated fields of interest.
  • IEEE Education Society: The IEEE Education Society (EdSoc) is a worldwide community of professionals dedicated to ensuring high-quality education in science and engineering.
