As part of a workshop series at Prairie View A&M University in Prairie View, Texas, entitled “What are Standards?” Professor Sarhan Musa focused the attention of his engineering technology students toward the application and value of technical standards, especially IEEE 515™ and IEEE 802.1aq™. The efforts of Prof. Musa, an IEEE senior member, were aided by the use of IEEE Standards Education materials found online, now incorporated as part of the new IEEE Standards University.
Don Fedyk of HP, an IEEE 802.1™ expert, attended the workshop to speak about his extensive experience with standards development and networking technologies. Students had the opportunity to give presentations on IEEE 802.1aq case study findings in front of Mr. Fedyk, who in turn shared related insights directly with the students.
IEEE Standards Education is committed to disseminating learning materials on the application of standards in educational programs, and to actively promoting the integration of standards into academic programs.
Special thanks to all involved for their support of IEEE Standards Education.
