Pathways to Academia:
Industry vs. Academia— Finding the Right Fit

One of the most important decisions engineers face is choosing whether to pursue a career in industry or academia.

If you’re struggling with this question— or if you know someone who is— join us for this live session to learn about the key differences.

5G Demystified: Health and Safety of 5G

In a world of propaganda and misinformation about 5G, how are policymakers and the public supposed to make sense of any individual claim? Various internet theories have tied 5G technology to cancer, COVID-19, and airplane risks.

Join us on LinkedIn Live where our experts will discuss the science and standards of human health effects from electromagnetic radio waves in 5G communications.

The Future of Commercial Surveillance and the Internet Economy

With a growing focus on data security and breaches, it should come as no surprise that the Federal Trade Commission recently launched one of the most ambitious rulemaking processes in agency history on commercial surveillance and data security. Hear from our speakers about potential outcomes from this process, as well as how to address lax data security practices.


6-10 Dec 2022

Don’t miss this multi-day event where we’ll share and learn from one another on all things STEM! Topics covered during last year’s discussion include best practices for STEM outreach, assessing the impact of your efforts, inspiring students, educational resources, and more.

A New Fund Helps IEEE-HKN Student Chapters Flourish
Chapters at UC-Berkeley and Columbia have benefited from the grant

University chapters are the lifeblood of IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN), the honor society of IEEE. There are 269 chapters at universities worldwide. Chapters can strengthen the organization while creating a pipeline of engaged members who are prepared and motivated to enhance their volunteer experience throughout their career. However, support provided by universities to chapters varies widely— which can limit activities.

2022 Issue 3: Engineering Space Exploration

Check out the latest issue of THE BRIDGE, IEEE-HKN’s signature publication. Published almost precisely 65 years after the launch of Sputnik I, this issue focuses on how significant advancements in space exploration have driven innovations in engineering. It also includes a feature on the James Webb Space Telescope, which has provided some of the most detailed images of the universe.

Building Satellites to Teach Students About the World

How do you get kids to look at the world differently? For a team of engineers working across Colombia, the answer is to teach them about space. Funded through a US$5,000 grant from EPICS in IEEE, a team affiliated with the IEEE EDS Colombia Chapter is developing satellites that will monitor meteorological and water conditions in the region.

Preparing for Giving Tuesday
29 November 2022

To encourage philanthropy among its members and friends, IEEE is participating in Giving Tuesday. The campaign runs from the 16th to 29th of November.

As Giving Tuesday approaches, consider making a donation to any of the IEEE Educational Activities programs, which are helping to shape the current and future generations of engineers and STEM enthusiasts through grants, scholarships, and more.

Stay Up to Date with the IEEE Teaching Excellence Hub

Hosted by the IEEE Education Society and IEEE Educational Activities, the IEEE Teaching Excellence Hub website provides professional development resources for those teaching engineering, computing, and technology at the university level.
