IEEE Standards Education

IEEE Standards Education helps to create awareness and understanding of the importance of standards and standardization and the critical role they play in industry and society.


As the world’s leading standards developer, IEEE is also a leading source of information and resources on standards, their applications, and their impact on designing new products, processes, and services. Standards Education is driven by the IEEE Standards Education Committee (SEC), joint committee of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Board of Governors and the  IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB).

IEEE is building the IEEE Standards University as part of its commitment to:

  • promote the importance of standards in meeting technical, economic, environmental, and societal challenges;
  • disseminate learning materials on the application of standards in the design and development aspects of educational programs;
  • actively promote the integration of standards into academic programs;
  • provide short courses about standards needed in the design and development phases of professional practice.
