Call for IEEE Program Evaluators for Accreditation Activities

Do you want to contribute to the achievement of high-quality educational standards of engineering and engineering technology programs? Do you want to interact directly with students from which future employees will be recruited? Do you want the opportunity to network and interact with fellow program evaluators, faculty members, and institutional executives?  These are just some of the benefits you will experience as an IEEE Program Evaluator. 

The IEEE Educational Activities Board (EAB) is seeking qualified professionals from industry, government and academic sectors to serve as Program Evaluators to assist in accrediting Engineering and Engineering Technology Programs for the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) and the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, Inc. The deadline for submitting an application is 1 November 2019.  This is strictly a volunteer position.

IEEE learning content at your fingertips
 

IEEE is proud to introduce the IEEE Learning Network (ILN) which now makes it easier for IEEE members and others in the engineering and technical community to find the IEEE online learning content that seek. ILN offers easy access to online learning content from 14 organizational units across IEEE, all in one place. There are more than 800 courses on core and emerging technologies, leadership skills, and engaging technical subjects. Many of these courses offer CEU's and PHDs. This allows engineers to get the credits necessary to maintain their professional licenses and advance their careers.

As an IEEE member, you qualify for discounts on most courses on the ILN at

Continuing its successful multi-year year implementation, the MGA 2019 Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VoLT) is set to launch on 5 September 2019, with a class of 66 volunteers, 63 mentors, 15 sessions and 12+ speakers.

The Members & Geographic Activities (MGA) Board agreed to pilot the program in 2013, with 19 graduates, and later approved its implementation. Since then, the VoLT program continues to thrive, boasting over 250 graduates by end of 2018. VoLT graduates represent all IEEE Regions and over 100 Sections.

“From the start, the purpose of the VoLT program has been to empower volunteers to become more engaged, take positions of leadership within their units and later within the larger IEEE,” said Loretta J Arellano, a senior IEEE Volunteer from Region 6 and the program founder.

You can help recognize the efforts of outstanding volunteers by nominating individuals for one of the prestigious IEEE Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Awards.  Each award has a unique mission and criteria and offers the opportunity to honor distinguished colleagues, inspiring teachers, and corporate leaders. 

If you know someone who has made substantial regional IEEE volunteer contributions through innovative projects, exemplary leadership, service, or by fulfilling the goals as related to transnational activities, consider nominating them for one of the following awards:

MGA Larry K. Wilson Transnational Award

MGA Innovation Award

MGA Leadership Award

MGA Achievement Award

MGA Young Professionals Achievement Award


Please visit the MGA Award nomination web page to 
review the nominator guidelines and eligibility requirements and link to the portal for nominations.


The deadline for nominations is 15 October 2019
 (for completed nomination form and two letters of endorsement).

Please note:  MGA awards are peer-recognized awards; therefore, self-nomination is not permitted.

More than 984 million people have little or no access to electricity, especially in remote areas of the world. Without sufficient access to power, these communities continue a cycle of economic impoverishment.

IEEE Smart Village (ISV) seeks champions to lead fund-raising teams using crowdfunding. The campaign, called “Bring the Light,” allows small groups to establish reasonable fund-raising goals and then contribute on-line with one-time or monthly donations to IEEE Foundation.
