IEEE Day 2021


IEEE Day 2021

IEEE Day was celebrated first time in history, when engineers worldwide and IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. The celebration of IEEE Day on 5 October 2021 will be the 12th year celebrating this historic event and marks  the zenith of the realization of the full potential of IEEE. IEEE Day honors the roles IEEE members played in different fields and activities.
