Today, it is the world’s largest association of technical professionals with more than 420,000 members in over 160 countries around the world. IEEE stands for the “Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers”. The association is chartered under this full legal ieee papers on nanotechnology pdf. IEEE’s membership has long been composed of engineers and scientists.
Allied professionals who are members include computer scientists, software developers, information technology professionals, physicists, and medical doctors, in addition to IEEE’s electrical and electronics engineering core. For this reason the organization no longer goes by the full name, except on legal business documents, and is referred to simply as IEEE. The IEEE is dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence. Society of Wireless and Telegraph Engineers and the Wireless Institute. 1930s, electronics engineers usually became members of the IRE, but the applications of electron tube technology became so extensive that the technical boundaries differentiating the IRE and the AIEE became difficult to distinguish.
After World War II, the two organizations became increasingly competitive, and in 1961, the leadership of both the IRE and the AIEE resolved to consolidate the two organizations. The two organizations formally merged as the IEEE on January 1, 1963. The IEEE includes 39 technical Societies, organized around specialized technical fields, with more than 300 local organizations that hold regular meetings. The IEEE History Center is annexed to Stevens University Hoboken, NJ.
Karen Bartleson is 2017 President and CEO of IEEE. She has over thirty-five years of experience in the semiconductor industry and retired as Senior Director of Corporate Programs and Initiatives at Synopsis, a company that specializes in electronic design automation. Bartleson was President of the IEEE Standards Association in 2013 and 2014 where she led the development of a new strategic plan, among other projects. In addition to journals and conference proceedings, the IEEE also publishes tutorials and standards that are produced by its standardization committees. The IEEE provides learning opportunities within the engineering sciences, research, and technology. The Standards in Education website explains what standards are and the importance of developing and using them.
The site includes tutorial modules and case illustrations to introduce the history of standards, the basic terminology, their applications and impact on products, as well as news related to standards, book reviews and links to other sites that contain information on standards. 1 CEU being equivalent to 10 PDHs. IEEE Expert Now courses will feature in the CPD listing for South Africa. IEEE also sponsors a website designed to help young people better understand engineering, and how an engineering career can be made part of their future. 18, parents, and teachers can explore the site to prepare for an engineering career, ask experts engineering-related questions, play interactive games, explore curriculum links, and review lesson plans. Through the Student Activities Committee, IEEE facilitates partnership between student activities and all other IEEE entities. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers sponsors more than 1,600 annual conferences and meetings worldwide.
IEEE is also highly involved in the technical program development of numerous events including trade events, training workshops, job fairs, and other programs. In 2017, IEEE had over 1100 active standards, with over 600 standards under development. An individual can join the IEEE as a student member, professional member, or associate member. In order to qualify for membership, the individual must fulfill certain academic or professional criteria and abide to the code of ethics and bylaws of the organization. Student membership is available for a reduced fee to those who are enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education as undergraduate or graduate students in technology or engineering.
Graduate Student Membership is discounted but members at this level have greater privileges than do Student Members. An associate membership is available to an individual whose area of expertise falls outside the scope of the IEEE or who does not, at the time of enrollment, meet all the requirements for full membership. Students and Associates have all the privileges of members, except the right to vote and hold certain offices. Society within the IEEE, which allows a limited form of participation in the work of a particular IEEE Society.
