Start Time

9AM Pacific Time


The objective of the IEEE 802 ® University Outreach Program is to expose both students and faculty members of universities local to IEEE 802 Plenary Session venues to the IEEE-802 standards development process so that they may:


[1]  Increase their understanding of the importance that standards play within engineering technologies;


[2]  Feel more comfortable participating in the standards development process in future academic careers, or as practicing engineers;


[3] Participate in the IEEE Standards Education Committee programs such as applying for grants for Student Application Papers Applying Industry Standards; and


[4] Cultivate an interest in including the role of standards in engineering in the academic curriculum. 


The day will start with an orientation session of about one hour long.  IEEE-802 University Outreach students and faculty attendees are then free to observe sessions in progress so long as there is adequate space in the room.  A list of meetings recommended for observation by the Working Groups (a self guided tour) will be supplied.  The day will end with a closing session to provide the opportunity for IEEE-802 University Outreach participants to ask questions about what they have observed.
