The World's Leading Engineering Magazine

IEEE Spectrum is the flagship magazine and website of the IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization devoted to engineering and the applied sciences.

Our charter is to keep nearly 450,000 members informed about major trends and developments in technology, engineering and science. Our blogs, podcasts, news and feature stories, videos and interactive infographics engage our visitors with clear explanations about emerging concepts and developments with details they can’t get elsewhere.

IEEE Spectrum touches our members on every platform, whether they are reading the print editions, coming to the site directly on their desktop, tablet or smartphone, through email newsletters or our digital facsimile edition, or following us via social networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

IEEE Spectrum is a broad media brand, from both editorial and market coverage points of view, because the curiosity of our audience dives far deeper than competitive vertical EE publications.

Advertise in a winning environment. Written by industry leaders and peers, IEEE Spectrum features content that consistently wins awards in the engineering media category.
