The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and its predecessors, the AIEE (American Institute of Electrical Engineers) and the IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers), date to 1884. In 1961, the leadership of both the IRE and the AIEE resolved to seek an end to these difficulties through consolidation. The next year a merger plan was formulated and approved and became effective on 1 January 1963.
Per January 2005 figures IEEE has :
more than 365,000 members in over 150 countries, almost 40 percent of whom are from outside the United States.
over 68,000 student members.
more than 27,000 society affiliates.
307 sections.
1,446 chapters.
more than 1,300 student branches in 80 countries.
over 300 student branch chapters.
more than 147 affinity groups.
39 societies and 3 technical councils.
As of Jan., there were more than 1.1 million documents in the IEEE/IEE Electronic Library. Visit IEEE Xplore(R) for daily totals .
The IEEE publishes a total of 128 transactions, journals and magazines.
The IEEE sponsors more than 300 conferences each year.
The IEEE Standards Association has more than 8,350 individual and almost 60 corporate members.
IEEE Vision
To advance global prosperity by fostering technological innovation, enabling members' careers and promoting community world- wide.
IEEE Mission
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.
The IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) is a worldwide, non-profit association of more than 20,000 individuals engaged in electric power engineering. PES members are involved in the planning, research, development, construction, installation, and operation of equipment and systems for the safe, reliable, and economic generation, transmission, distribution, measurement, and control of electric energy. The Power & Enegy Society provides the world's largest forum for sharing the latest in technological developments in the electric power industry, for developing standards that guide the development and construction of equipment and systems, and for educating members of the industry and the general public. Members of the Power & Energy Society are leaders in this field, and they — and their employers — derive substantial benefits from involvement with this unique and outstanding association.
IEEE Power & Energy Society Mission Statement
To be the leading provider of scientific and engineering information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society, and the preferred professional development source for our members.
