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

Recognizing the important role standards play within the engineering, technology, and computing fields, IEEE provides resources to help introduce and teach undergraduate and graduate students about technical standards.

Educators resource library

The Educators Resource Library provides educators with information to access standards for the classroom and resources to help teach about standards in engineering courses. Be sure to visit the Case Study and Practical Ideas from Professors Series on teaching about standards.
