IEEE Day – 2014 was the fifth time in history, when Engineers worldwide celebrated the anniversary of the first IEEE members gathering to share their technical ideas in 1884.
The IEEE Day team was made up of student volunteers, young professionals and staff. Together, they worked to assure that IEEE Day – 2014 celebration is bigger and more impressive than the last four editions.
