IEEE is a leader in engineering and technology education, providing resources for pre-university, university, and continuing professional education. IEEE offers innovative STEM and university education and recognition programs for students and their teachers, facilitates the accreditation of engineering programs at the university level, and offers ongoing continuing professional education for practitioners and engineering faculty through platforms such as the IEEE Learning Network (ILN)

Explore education programs and offerings from IEEE below. 

Continuing professional education

IEEE offers courses on core and emerging technologies, as well as career development from across the institute on the IEEE Learning Network. IEEE member discounts are available. To learn more and begin taking courses, visit ILN today.

Pre-university STEM education resources

IEEE offers STEM education opportunities for pre-university students and teachers across the globe. All pre-university programs are designed to help introduce students to engineering and technology at a young age to help them see themselves in STEM careers, understand career opportunities in engineering and technology, and develop an appreciation for the work that engineers do. Resources are also provided that help teachers bring engaging engineering activities into their classrooms.

Some of these programs include:

  • TryEngineering: IEEE TryEngineering aims to empower pre-university educators to foster the next generation of engineers and technology innovators. The site provides parents, educators, and students with free STEM education content, including lesson plans, games, articles, and other resources that engage and inspire. 
  • TryEngineering Together: A virtual mentoring program that pairs engineers and STEM enthusiasts with students in grades 3–8 in under-resourced school districts. Students learn about engineering through hands-on classroom lessons, readings, and writing about their experiences with their e-mentors.
  • TryEngineering Summer Institute: A two-week, on-campus summer engineering experience for high school students. Students ages 13-17 learn about a variety of engineering disciplines through hands-on design challenges, guest speakers, and field trips.
  • IEEE REACH: Understanding that technology and history are not mutually exclusive subjects, IEEE REACH provides history teachers with free educational resources that situate science, technology, and engineering in their social and humanistic contexts.

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. Programs for universities include:

  • 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.
