IEEE is the leading global professional organisation in electrical engineering and computer science. The abbreviation stands for “Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers”.

IEEE’s mission is the advancement of technology for humanity. This goal is worked towards in collaboration with members worldwide through conferences, publications, development of technical standards, as well as further professional and educational activities.

To promote interest in technical careers, IEEE supports students at universities and higher educational institutions worldwide.


Subject areas:



The IEEE Xplore Digital Library is the search platform for all IEEE publications and partner content. This ranges from journals, conference proceedings and standards, to e-learning courses and ebooks. Various licence options are available according to your needs – from download-based packages to unlimited access.

IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL): The collection includes all IEEE journals, conference proceedings and standards. Additionally there are english-language VDE conference proceedings, and optional add-on partner content (IBM Journal of Research & Development, Bell Labs Technical Journal). The unlimited access includes a backfile from 1832 onwards.

IEEE eLearning Library is a collection of more than 400 course modules in a wide range of topic areas. Including highly-topical subjects such as cyber security, ethical hacking, internet of things and artificial intelligence.

IEEE-Wiley eBooks is an extensive ebook collection starting in1974, which is continually updated with new content.

IEEE-Wiley Telecommunications eBooks is a further ebook collection with titles in the area of telecommunications, dating back to 2007.

IEEE Standards are available as a complete package, subject collection or for a limited number of downloads. The collection includes current, historic and retracted standards, as well as IEEE draft standards.

IEEE Enterprise is a download-based product tailored to your needs for IEEE publications from the journals, conference proceedings, ebooks and partner content.

25th October 2019 – IEEE ELEARNING – New course released

Two new courses have recently been released on IEEE Xplore: Enterprise Blockchain for Healthcare, IoT, Energy, and Supply Chain (A 5-module course), and the Introduction to IEEE Standard 1547-2018: Connecting Distributed Energy Resources (m6 modules).

The course 5G Networks and Finite Element Method for Photonics will both be released by the end of the year

14. March 2019 – IEEE eLearning – new courses

Over 400 courses in technical disciplines are available. The modules can also be delivered in SCORM format, for the integration in institution Learning Management Systems.

The newest courses address the following current topics:

– Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design is a 2-part programme for those developing artificial intelligence systems with an eye on ethical standards.

There is a growing need for training in Artificial Intelligence and Ethics. This programme was developed to fulfill this need. It is directed at people interested in the integration of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems in business structures and at academic institutions, for research purposes and as a complement to course material.

– Guide to Autonomous Vehicle Technology; automated vehicle technologies are developing quickly and aim to improve driver safety. Although these advanced technologies offter potential advantages for drivers, there remains uncertainty about the efficacy and user friendliness of these systems.

The IEEE Guide to Autonomous Vehicle Technology covers basic and practical applications of autonomous, connected and intelligent vehicle technologies, including an overview of the current state-of-the-art systems, deep learning algorithms and other intelligent approaches which make safe and easy driving possible.

– Introduction to Blockchain: The Blockchain Technologie is considered the most significant development since the internet 30 years ago. Although this technology ist synonymous with Bitcoin financial services and banks, it is also accelerating groundbreaking developments in other areas such as supply chain management, science and health sciences.

In order for companies to be able to successfully exploit these new opportunities with blockchain, it is essential that they develop the technical knowledge about the basis of this technology. IEEE Guide to Blockchain Technology covers basic and practical applications of this revolutionary technology, including case studies that present the abstract possiblities and limits of the blockchain technology.

Further course areas are currently being developed:

– Machine Learning
– Modernizing the Smart Grid
– 5G

Additionally a language course “IEEE English for Engineers” is available. The course modules promote the speaking of technical English, listening and understanding, technical writing and the reading and understanding of scientific literature.
