"We realized the need to offer our attendees in the Continuing Education Center (CEC) the opportunity to earn credits after completing a few simple steps. Attendees will need to attend two tracks during a semester and attend four of the five courses per track.  In addition, Design News is a community and we encourage our CEC attendees to fully participate in the courses by utilizing the chat function: ask questions, answer questions, etc. In addition, students can earn additional IEEE Professional Development Hours by attending more courses; there are a total of twenty-four new courses for 2014." - Steven Carlisle, Marketing Manager, Design News
