The Professional Group on Engineering Management was established under the Institute of Radio Engineers in 1951. This group became the Engineering Management Society (EMS) of the IEEE in 1955. In 2007 this became the IEEE Technology Management Council (TMC) and in January 2015 the Technology Engineering and Management Society.

Field of interestEdit

The field of interest encompasses the management sciences and practices required for defining, implementing, and managing engineering and technology.

The society publishes two peer-reviewed journals: the Transactions on Engineering Management and the Engineering Management Review.

Society also publishes a popular newsletter and magazine : IEEE Leader

ConferencesEdit

The society sponsors and co-sponsors a number of internationally-held conferences and events on subjects relevant to its field of interest (the flagship one being TEMSCON).[1][2]
