Young Professionals Presentation

The IEC Young professionals’ (YPs) programme was started by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 2010, targeting engineers working in industry in the age group early 20s to mid- 30s, with the aim of ensuring the technical work of the IEC would be future-proofed with a growing number of a new generation of technical experts familiar with standardization and the role of the IEC.

Since 2013, the South African National Committee (SANC) of the IEC has been organizing, annually, a competition to selected two candidates to be proposed to the IEC to attend the international IEC young professional programme, co-located with the IEC general meeting. This year these events will be hosted by the National Committee of the Republic of Korea, in Busan, October 2018.

The South African Chapter of IEC Young Professionals on behalf of the South African National Committee of the IEC is offering young professionals the opportunity to participate in the 9th IEC annual workshop for Young Professionals in Busan, Republic of Korea in October 2018, co-located with the IEC General Meeting.
