What does the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management offer Young Professionals?
IEEE TEMS initiated its Young Professional programs in 2015 and in the span of one year we are proud to state that we have built our foundation on our education programs. TEMS provides IEEE members with an opportunity to learn from and engage with professionals in the management side of engineering and technology. We have been working on programs which span from introducing members to Engineering Management concepts such as our MOOC on ‘Project Management for Engineers’ which is due to be launched in 2017 to bi-monthly webinars from industry experts and focused articles by thought leaders aimed at YPs in our Engineering Management Review journal. We aim to build on these programs in the future and provide more value to our members.
We would like to invite Young Professionals to send us suggestions relating to TEMS fields of interest which they would like to see implemented.
