The IEEE – Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization, IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. IEEE is the technical professional association of more than 410,000 individual members in 147 countries. The IEEE helps advance global prosperity by promoting the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electrical and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.
The IEEE promotes the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.
From its earliest origins, the IEEE has advanced the theory and application of electrotechnology and allied sciences, served as a catalyst for technological innovation and supported the needs of its members through a wide variety of programs and services.
Through its members, the IEEE is a leading authority in technical areas ranging from computer engineering, biomedical technology and telecommunications, to electric power, aerospace and consumer electronics, among others. Through its technical publishing, conferences and consensus-based standards activities, the IEEE produces 30 percent of the world's published literature in electrical engineering, computers and control technology, holds annually more than 300 major conferences and has more than 800 active standards with 700 under development.
The IEEE has 39 different technical societies, which publish more than 80 transactions, magazines and journals in all fields of electrical, electronics and computer engineering. The IEEE has developed (and revises continually) 900 industrial standards in the fields of electrical, electronics and computer engineering.
In conclusion, IEEE is magnet bringing engineers together.
