Submit your new course proposals on line here.

The IEEE Boston Section is the largest and most active section of the 350 IEEE sections worldwide. The local IEEE Boston Section supports over 8,000 members and over two hundred volunteers to help develop and implement strategies to accomplish its many goals. The IEEE Boston Section organizes and offers more than 120 free technical chapter talks, over forty short courses and as many as four topical conferences each year.

One of the many goals of the IEEE Boston Section is to provide the local technical community with quality, affordable, state-of-the-art professional development training. The IEEE offers its courses geared to the working professional. The courses should be organized with an applications oriented focus and have specific, immediate benefits to help the attendee perform their job better.

Our courses range from 6 hours (single-day) to as many as 30 hours (multi-evening). Many factors determine the format of the course; the instructor’s schedule, how the subject matter is best learned by the attendees, etc. Also, being a 501 © 3 non-profit, and keeping a close eye on costs, the IEEE can offer its courses at a lower fee than many other associations and almost all for-profit organizations. We do offer an honorarium to those speakers that make a request.

All course proposals are reviewed by the Professional Development & Education Committee for appropriateness, technical merit, and to offer recommendations to help structure and focus the course to be more beneficial to our audience, before being offered as part of our continuing education program. We seek instructors that can provide the technical skill, knowledge and experience in their specific field to benefit the local working professionals.

Once this proposal is received, it will be reviewed by the committee and accepted or rejected for the continuing education program of the IEEE Boston Section. The IEEE Boston Section office will follow up on communications with the organizer or lecturer. The goal of the proposal is to determine if a given course is appropriate for the IEEE Boston Section. This does not need to be a formal proposal.

Questions? Any questions can be directed to the IEEE Boston Section Business Manager, Bob Alongi at, or 781-245-5405.
