Over 20 master’s-degree students learned more about IEEE and its standardization processes this past June as part of their lecture course on “Strategic Standardization” at TU Berlin. IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Managing Director Konstantinos Karachalios discussed the power of technology standards to transform the world; the global impact of IEEE standards; the importance of standardization for trade; the geopolitical impact of standardization; and the ecosystem of IEEE standards. The lecture was offered through IEEE’s Standards Education program, which educates students about standards and standardization, including their critical role in the workforce and society and as part of the IEEE SA Standards Board outreach activities in Berlin.
