IEEE – Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
The world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE’s highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE creates an environment where members collaborate on world‐changing technologies – from computing and sustainable energy systems, to aerospace, communications, robotics, health care, and more.
IEEE membership is open for any individual, who belongs to an IEEE designated field by education or profession. Engineering, computer science and information technology, physical science, biological and medical science, mathematics, technical communications, education, management and law comes under the hood of IEEE designated fields. This indicates that IEEE no longer serves only for electrical and electronic engineers. Members from ample amount of domains can excel in their studies and careers via IEEE membership.

IEEE’s core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
IEEE will be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere, and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions.
IEEE Societies & Communities
With the members spanning 165 countries across the globe, this world’s largest professional association comprises of a wide variety of groups, each with the objective of catering to different technological purposes.
There are two ways to get involved with IEEE: by area of interest (knowledge groups) or by geographic location (in your area).
IEEE knowledge groups are member- and volunteer-driven communities, providing cutting-edge research and knowledge on various topics. These include, societies, technical councils, technical committees, Standards Association and working groups and virtual networks.
Apart from this categorization IEEE is divided into ten worldwide geographic regions. Within the regions, there are local sections, chapters and affinity groups. Together, these units conduct over 10,000 meetings a year and enable members to network and explore their technical interests as a community.
