IEEE History Center

fter 24 years, the IEEE History Center has relocated from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA to the campus of Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA, which will become the new strategic partner for IEEE in the history area.

The mission of the IEEE History Center is to preserve, research and promote the history of electrical, electronic and informational sciences and technologies. The Center maintains many resources for the historian of science or technology, for the educator, and for anyone interested in the development of electrical and computer sciences and engineering and their role in modern society.  The Center is sponsored by IEEE, the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.

Stevens Institute of Technology  is a premier, private research university situated in Hoboken, N.J. overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Founded in 1870, technological innovation has been the hallmark and legacy of Stevens’ education and research programs for more than 140 years.  Within Stevens, the IEEE History Center will be affiliated with the College of Arts and Letters (CAL), the academic unit dedicated to teaching and research at the intersection of science, technology, the humanities, and the arts.  CAL maintains a strong focus on the history of science and technology and on science and technology studies.

The move will enable two organizations at the intersection of history and technoscience to take advantage of synergies and increases strategic opportunities.
