The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world's largest technical professional society. Founded in 1884 by a handful of practitioners of the new electrical engineering discipline, today's Institute is comprised of more than 320,000 members who conduct and participate in its activities in 147 countries. The men and women of the IEEE are the technical and scientific professionals making the revolutionary engineering advances which are reshaping our world today.
The technical objectives of the IEEE focus on advancing the theory and practice of electrical, electronics and computer engineering and computer science. To realize these objectives, the IEEE sponsors technical conferences, symposia and local meetings worldwide: publishes nearly 25% of the world's technical papers in electrical, electronics and computer engineering; provides educational programs to keep its members' knowledge and expertise state-of-the-art. The purpose of all these activities is two fold: (1) to enhance the quality of life for all peoples through improved public awareness of the influences and applications of its technologies; and (2) to advance the standing of the engineering profession and its members.
The IEEE, through its members, provides leadership in areas ranging from aerospace, computers and communications to biomedical technology, electric power and consumer electronics. For the latest research and innovations in the many diverse fields of electrical and electronics engineering, industry and individuals look to the IEEE.
IEEE membership is open to professionals with varying levels of academic accomplishment and work experience. Member, Senior Member and Fellow grades are limited to those who have achieved professional competence and recognition, as demonstrated by the college degrees they have received and/or by their work experience. Associate grade is open to certain technical and nontechnical applicants who may benefit by membership and participation in the IEEE and, also, to those individuals progressing through education and work experience toward Member grade. All members - Associate, Member, Senior Member and Fellow pay the same low membership dues and receive the same IEEE membership benefits and services, although Associates may not vote in IEEE elections or hold volunteer offices for which the grade of Member or higher is required. Student member applications are available upon request. Student members have substantially discounted dues and fees far below what other members pay.
