This year, IEEE Members around the world will celebrate IEEE Day for the 11th consecutive year. IEEE Day 2020 is Tuesday, 6 October, but celebrations can be held throughout the week.

Have you considered being a part of this annual, global celebration?

It’s easy to become involved. Here are some ideas.

  • Share your professional experiences by visiting a local elementary school and have a science, technology, engineering, or math presentation or discussion. Communicate why you became an engineer and what makes engineering cool for boys and girls.
  • Collaborate with your local Section and Student Branch to organize an event at a local university. Participate as a technical expert and discuss how IEEE helped you during your career. Consider becoming a mentor.
  • Hold an awareness or fundraising event to benefit an IEEE program supported through the IEEE Foundation’s Realize the Full Potential of IEEE Campaign. More information, please visit
  • Work with your local Section to organize or attend a Senior Member event.
