The IEEE Education Society was founded in 1957 and is one of the oldest technical societies in IEEE. It is a worldwide society of professionals dedicated to ensuring high-quality education in science and engineering. Our members engage students each day, research and propose new theories in learning science, and innovate classroom practice.  

If you are not yet a member of the Education Society, we invite you to explore our website, especially our Society’s overview page, where you can see general information about our society, and our membership page, where you can see our Publications, Conferences, and Educational Activities.

We invite you to join us; a worldwide community of professionals is waiting for you. 

If you are a member of the Education Society, we want to thank you for your contributions to our community. We hope that you continually benefit from the dialogue our Society helps to foster in the world of Engineering Education. Together, we are a dedicated group of skilled professionals working toward the goal of helping our engineering students and academic, government, and industry professionals build bright futures for themselves.
