About IEEE Day
IEEE Day is celebrating the first time in history when engineers worldwide and IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. Worldwide celebrations demonstrate the ways thousands of IEEE members in local communities join together to collaborate on ideas that leverage technology for a better tomorrow.
Theme
Now engraved in its essence, the IEEE Day’s theme is: “Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow“. While the world benefits from what’s new, IEEE focuses on what’s next.
