More than 60 IEEE operating units, regions, sections and technical societies celebrated the first-ever IEEE Education Week from 4-8 April 2022 with dozens of live events, virtual resources, special offers and even a daily online quiz that awarded a digital badge for participants who answered correctly.
“Education Week was a chance to show the collective impact IEEE has on lifelong learning and education at every level,” said Managing Director, Educational Activities Jamie Moesch. “From pre-university STEM programs, to university offerings, to continuing professional education courses, tutorials and more, there are so many ways to engage with education from IEEE. This week was about bringing all those resources together in one place and making sure our members know about all of the amazing educational opportunities available to them.”
“Awareness and generous philanthropic support allow IEEE programs such as the PES Scholarship Plus Initiative, IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu, IEEE REACH, Science Kits for Public Libraries – a project of IEEE Region 4 and others to continue to provide resources, scholarships, programming and more for students, young professionals and established professionals around the world, said IEEE Foundation Executive Director Karen Galuchie. Though Education Week came to a close, IEEE Foundation continues to support the pursuit of education throughout the year.
