About IEEE-USA Awards & Recognition

IEEE-USA has authorized the presentation of Awards and Recognition for the purpose of recognizing excellence, outstanding service and contributions in furtherance of its objectives. The awards are administered by IEEE-USA's Awards and Recognition Committee and have been approved by the IEEE Awards Board and the IEEE Board of Directors. IEEE-USA Awards are given to recognize professionalism, technical achievement, and literary contributions to public awareness and understanding of the engineering profession in the United States. In addition to IEEE-USA awards, other forms of recognition are also available, including awards from other entities within IEEE and also outside the organization.

IEEE-USA award recipients are announced each year at a special Awards Ceremony held in conjunction with the IEEE-USA Annual Meeting.

The following listing of IEEE-USA awards includes links to information on each award, its purpose, form, frequency, eligibility, nomination and selection process, and presentation. Please contact David Iams (d.iams@ieee.org, +1 202-530-8374) with any questions or concerns.
