Article II, Section 1 of the Education Society's Constitution —The Education Society's FIELD OF INTEREST shall be:the theory and practice of education and educational technology involved in the effective delivery of domain knowledge of all fields within the scope of interest of IEEE.

This award recognizes an IEEE Education Society Chapter that provides exemplary technical activities, membership services, and societal activities to its members.

This award recognizes an IEEE Education Society member who has, over a sustained period of time, made an exceptional contribution to the Society, which has manifested itself at the Chapter level. Selection is based on leadership roles and leadership quality, which have provided an innovative, inventive, and/or important service/contribution the Ed Soc's Chapter function.

This award recognizes outstanding long-term service to the IEEE Education Society and significant contributions in an IEEE Field of Interest. Recipients must have been members of the Society for at least ten years and are selected for leadership quality, innovative and important contributions, service, dedication, and technical achievements.

To recognize pioneering contributions to the administrative efforts of the IEEE Education Society over a period of years

This award recognizes outstanding faculty women who have made significant contributions to electrical/computer engineering education through excellence in teaching, encouraging and supporting increased participation of women in electrical/computer engineering, demonstrated scholarship/research, development of educational technology which enhances student learning, and/or service to the engineering profession. The recipient must be a tenured or tenure-track woman faculty member in an ABET-accredited engineering program, with teaching and/or research specialization in electrical/computer engineering.

This award recognizes members of the IEEE Education Society who have made outstanding contributions to teaching unusually early in their professional careers, as evidenced by teaching performance, development of new teaching methods, and curricular innovation in fields of interest to the IEEE Education Society. Nominations are evaluated on the basis of the candidate’s statement of teaching philosophy and practice, letters of support from students and peers, and student evaluations.

This award recognizes an exceptional contribution to the Education Society by a person who was an IEEE Graduate Student Member or an IEEE Student Member at the time the exceptional contribution was made.

This award is given to the best paper presented at the annual Frontiers in Education Conference, as demonstrated by technical originality, technical importance and accuracy, quality of oral presentation, and quality of the written paper appearing in the Conference Proceedings.

This award is given for the best special (non-traditional) session at the FIE conference, as demonstrated by originality, session content and presentation including the use of written materials and visual aids, and participation of session attendees.

This award is given to recognize outstanding and continued service to engineering education through contributions to the Frontiers in Education Conference.

IEEE Computer Society's Education/Teaching Awards

The award nomination requires a minimum of 2 endorsements. The award consists of a bronze medal and $5,000 honorarium are awarded for an outstanding record in computer science and engineering education.

Awarded for outstanding contributions to undergraduate education through teaching and service, and for helping to maintain interest in the field and make a statement about the importance with which the IEEE Computer Society views undergraduate education.

 

 

ASEE's Fredrick Emmons Terman Award

The Frederick Emmons Terman Award, which was established in 1969, is awarded by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Division of the American Association of Engineering Education (ASEE). The Terman Award is bestowed annually upon an outstanding young electrical/computer engineering educator in recognition of the educator's contributions to the profession.

IEEE Membership and Geographic Activities Board (MGA) Awards

This award recognizes the accomplishment judged to be the most significant and effective in fulfilling one or more of the transnational goals and objectives of Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) as related to transnational activities. The accomplishments of the candidate(s) should be of "significant performance" and should have made a distinguishing contribution to IEEE. The focus should be on volunteering for IEEE, MGA, or its organizational units; not on professional achievement.

This award is to recognize individuals or a team involved with Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) and/or the Regional network for singular achievement in the development and completion of a project(s) or activity(ies) directed to the fulfillment of one or more of the goals and objectives of MGA. This award is designed to recognize those substantive projects or achievements of a relatively short nature (one to three years), but which have left an undeniable imprint on the fabric of Regional operations. The accomplishments of the candidate should be of "significant performance" and should have made a distinguishing contribution to IEEE. The focus should be on volunteering for IEEE, MGA, or its organizational units; not on professional achievement.
