Society Membership

The IEEE Education Society was founded in 1957 as the Professional Group on Education of the Institute of Radio Engineers. It is a worldwide society of thousands 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, develop new learning technology, and innovate classroom practice.

We welcome your contributions to our community and hope you can benefit from the dialog the society helps to foster. If you are already working as an educator, or if you are a student considering a future as an educator then we encourage you to join us⧉ if you do not already belong to our Society. We hope you will consider us part of your professional network as you progress through your career.
