Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

The roots of the IEEE (pronounced „Eye-triple-E„) go back to 1884 when electricity began to become a major influence in society. This year the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) was founded. In 1912, when the new industry of radio telegraphy emerged, another organization was founded that was called Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). And in 1963 these two societies were merged together in IEEE.

IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.


In 2021 the IEEE had:

  • Over 409,000 members in more than 160 countries, more than 60 percent of whom are from outside the United States
  • More than 125,000 Student members

  • 2,615 Chapters that unite local members with similar technical interests
  • 3,565 Student Branches at colleges and universities in over 100 countries
  • 3,182 Student Branch Chapters of IEEE technical Societies
  • 608 affinity groups; IEEE affinity groups are non-technical sub-units of one or more Sections or a Council. The affinity group patent entities are the IEEE-USA Consultants Network, Young Professionals (YP), Women in Engineering (WIE), Life Members (LM), and IEEE Entrepreneurship
  • 39 technical Societies and seven Technical Councils representing the wide range of IEEE technical interests
  • more than 5 million documents in the IEEE Xplore® digital library, with more than 15 million downloads each month
  • an active portfolio of 1,076 standards and more than 900 projects under development
  • publishes approximately 200 transactions, journals, and magazines
