within engineering technology.  


[2] Feel more comfortable participating in the standards process in future
academic careers, or as practicing engineers.  


[3] Participate in the IEEE Standards Education Committee programs such as
applying for grants for Student Application Papers Applying Industry


[4] Cultivate an interest in including the role of standards in engineering
in the academic curriculum.  


The day will start with an orientation session of about one hour long.
IEEE-802 University Outreach students and faculty attendees are then free to
observe sessions in progress so long as there is adequate space in the room.
A list of meetings recommended for observation by the Working Groups (a self
guided tour) will be supplied.  The day will end with a closing session to
provide the opportunity for IEEE-802 University Outreach participants to ask
questions about what they have observed.
