About IEEE

IEEE stands for “Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers” which is the largest professional association of engineers in the world. The mission is to “foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity”. The name suggests that the association only consists of electrical engineers but anyone involved in a technical field (engineering) can join.

Headquartered in New York, the members come from all over the globe (regarding nationality or residence). It was formed in the year 1963, merging the Institute of Radio Engineers (1912) and the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (1884).

IEEE produces 30% of world’s literature in electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields.

IEEE also offers educational programs to ensure the growth of knowledge in the electricity-related technical professions. Some of these programs are:

  •     IEEE eLearning Library
  •     Education Partners Program
  •     Standards in Education
  •     Continuing Education Units

In Addition to all of these, the IEEE awards exceptional Student Branches for their notable activities.
