What is IEEE?

Nearly half a million people are part of it.

By Joao Lima

IEEE is the short version for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a global professional organisation which focus on areas such as electronics, communications, computer engineering and science, IT, and others.

The organisation was created in 1963 following the merger of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the Institute of Radio Engineers.

The IEEE counts with over 430,000 members across the globe and has its main building in Piscataway, New Jersey, US.

The IEEE’s work is very much based on setting industry standards across the IT, electronics and computing landscape.

The organisation is also known for its in-depth publications, educational activities and conferences.

The IEEE has an extensive member hierarchy system including student members, graduate student members, members, society members, senior members, fellow members, honorary members, and finally life senior members or life fellows.

With revenues ascending to $400m, the IEEE is headed by president and CEO Barry L. Shoop.
