Electronics Engineers TheIEEE and its predecessors, the AIEE
(AmericanInstitute of Electrical Engineers) and the IRE (Institute
ofRadio Engineers), date to 1884. From its earliest origins, the IEEE
has advanced the theoryand application of electrotechnology and allied
sciences, served asa catalyst for technological innovation and
supported the needs ofits members through a wide variety of programs
and services. 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.
- IEEE Computer Society
With nearly 100,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society is the world's leading organization of computer professionals. Founded in 1946, it is the largest of the 37 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
The Computer Society's vision is to be the leading provider of technical information and services to the world's computing professionals.
