The IEEE and the Education Society A general view and more… Marcelo C. de Castro IEEE Student Member Chair of IEEE EdSoc Students Committee 2005
2001 – UNESP (State University of Sao Paulo) beginning of the course beginning of the course 2002 – First research project semiconductors physics semiconductors physics 2004 – Second research project ways to teach engineering better ways to teach engineering better 2003 beginning of IEEE life… beginning of IEEE life…
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers I E E E 365,000 individual members Present in 150 countries Produces 30% of all EE publications + computer science 900 active standards and 500 under development
Why I started to join IEEE? Fundamental to improve my references (IEEE Xplore) Fundamental to improve my references (IEEE Xplore) Fundamental to expand my friendship (networking) Fundamental to expand my friendship (networking) (IEEE Conferences) Fundamental to find new jobs (IEEE Career) Fundamental to find new jobs (IEEE Career) Fundamental to develop my social work Fundamental to develop my social work (IEEE Volunteer Program)
HAVE AN IDEA! - IEEE Magazines - IEEE Communities
STUDY DEEPER THIS IDEA! - IEEE Xplore - IEEE Specialized Publications - IEEE Communities
DEVELOP THE PROJECT!
WRITE AND PUBLISH YOUR PAPER! - IEEE Publications - IEEE Conferences - IEEE Standards
I do like a very specific area. Does IEEE coverage? IEEE Education Society IEEE Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society IEEE Broadcast Technology Society IEEE Circuits and Systems Society IEEE Communications Society IEEE Components Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society IEEE Computational Intelligence Society IEEE Computer Society IEEE Consumer Electronics Society IEEE Control Systems Society IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society IEEE Education Society IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society IEEE Electron Devices Society IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society IEEE Engineering Management Society IEEE Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society IEEE Industrial Electronics Society IEEE Industry Applications Society IEEE Information Theory Society IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society IEEE Lasers & Electro-Optics Society… and more than 40 societies!

“Study interest frustrated” “Universities full, interest empty” “Companies need better employees” “Universities need better researchers” “Many options, quick decision” “Do I have enough maturity to choose?” “Salaries decreasing” “Failing rates reach more than 90%” “Responsibilities increasing”
IEEE Education Society takes care of it!
Education Research Project - volunteer project - volunteer project - computational simulation programs - computational simulation programs - psychological survey to trace the better approach - psychological survey to trace the better approach - weekly extra-classes - weekly extra-classes going back to 2004… Results Failing students reduction!
- Conferences in Brazil - ICL Conference in Austria IEEE Multidisciplinary Engineering Education Magazine
Education Society News IEEE Resources for Students Technical Overview Historical Overview InterviewsProfilePerspectivesReflectionForumSurveys Peer-Reviewed Papers
What is coming next? Publication launch – predicted to January 2006 International Conference – Fall 2006 Forums Inside Universities – coming soon Global Surveys – coming soon
