Over the years many students have asked us this question, when they come to us for their projects and we thought a article might be for some help to all the student looking for an answer to the question – What is an IEEE project ?

We all know what IEEE stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – as of today IEEE is the foremost technical organization related to electronics, electrical, computer science and all related domains and fields. IEEE’s roles and activities are many but they can be broadly classified into three categories namely

  1. Educational Activities
  2. Standards Development
  3. Publications

Here we are interested in the Publications aspect of IEEE. IEEE organizes many conferences all over the world where the latest technology ideas are presented as papers, and are published in journals and other publications. These papers are collectively called IEEE papers. So essentially each IEEE paper speaks of a new technology innovation / idea / possibility. Since these papers are published by IEEE in its various publications more often than not these papers are of good technical standing. Almost all of these publications are also available online through IEEE Xplore, which is a digital library of IEEE publications.

Coming back to the original question as to what is a IEEE project? – Well any project that derives its core idea from an IEEE paper is generally regarded as a IEEE project. Having said that one must remember that IEEE papers are very often published after years of research and hence it is practically impossible for BE students or even ME students to exactly follow the work done in a IEEE paper for a final year project. In cases like these where the scope of the IEEE paper is beyond the purview of a BE project or a ME project, the student can take up a part of the paper and implement the same. Alternatively sometimes the scope of a single paper might be too small for a worthy final year project, in which case more than one IEEE papers can be taken as base papers.

One more thing that students are generally confused about is the difference between a IEEE base paper and an IEEE reference paper ! Both the terms are self explanatory because an IEEE base paper is a paper on which the fundamental idea of the project is based on. Whereas an reference paper is a additional paper that deals with some smaller aspect of the project. So typically a project has one base paper and possibly many reference papers. Depending on the nature of the IEEE project,  reference papers might be applicable or might not be applicable.

Having know what an IEEE project is and what IEEE base paper and Reference papers are, the next logical question is – How does one go about selecting a IEEE project and a base paper? – We’ll cover that in a separate article.
