IEEE Day is a global event to be held on the first Tuesday of October, annually. It celebrates the anniversary of the first time IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. While the world benefits from what’s new, IEEE focuses on what’s next. IEEE Day 2015 is the 6th edition of the same.
Global celebrations connect thousands of IEEE members who together cooperate and share excitement, ideas and envisions on technologies for the future. Driven by value and passion that IEEE events and activities bring in our professional lives, as volunteers we find opportunities in such gatherings to generate ideas to benefit our communities. This is how IEEEians celebrate!
The IEEE Day team is made up of student volunteers and young professionals. Together, they collaborate and work to bring even greater and more impressive celebrations than the last four editions.
