The IEEE Milestones in Electrical Engineering and Computing program honors significant technical achievements in all areas associated with IEEE. It is a program of the IEEE History Committee, administered through the IEEE History Center. Milestones recognize the technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity found in unique products, services, seminal papers and patents. Milestones are proposed by any IEEE member, and are sponsored by an IEEE Organizational Unit (OU) such as an IEEE section, society, chapter or student branch. Learn more about the IEEE Milestones program.
The Milestones Status Report contains a complete list of all Milestones which are currently in process.
Before submitting a proposal please review the List of all Dedicated Milestones as well as the Milestone Proposals to ensure that a proposal does not already exist. You may also wish to view the List of Achievements suitable for Proposal to give you some ideas.
