The AESS Short Course Initiative was developed by the AESS to provide the following benefits:
- Training: Many IEEE members are more interested in tutorials or short courses, rather than a single lecture. This is because IEEE members are typically engineers, students, or researchers who prefer to spend a block of time developing skills as part of a training course. Also, local industry is more willing to send their employees for training/tutorial classes rather than a single lecture.
- Income for Chapters: Chapters that are willing to host a Short Course, provide local support, manage logistics, manage attendees, etc. will be able to raise some revenue for future IEEE activities.
- Serving the society membership: The Short Course Initiative will bring together many areas in the society: Membership, Education, Technical Panels, and Industry.
The AESS Short Course Committee prepared a Short Course Program Guide, a comprehensive guide to assist in the organization of an AESS Short Course.
