Transcript of IEEE Knowledge | IEEE AlexSB

The last quarter of the nineteenth century was marked by a tremendous growth in electrical technology. By the early 1880s,

. Telegraph wires crisscrossed the United States.
. Europe and America were connected by underwater cable.
. Arc lights were in use in several cities.
. Thomas Edison's Pearl Street Station was supplying power for incandescent lights in New York.
There were numerous firms manufacturing electrical equipment. the telephone was growing in importance as a communication tool. AIEE (American Institute of Electrical Engineers) was established in 1884. Focused on telegraphy and electrical power. IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers) was established in 1912. A student Branch from 1959 to 1965 IEEE 1963-1984

Over the decades that followed, with IEEE’s continued leadership, its societal roles of the technologies continued to spread across the world, and reach into more and more areas of people’s lives.

By the time IEEE celebrated its centennial (from the year AIEE was formed) in 1984, it had 250,000 members, 50,000 of whom were outside the United States. Since that time, computers evolved from massive mainframes to desktop appliances to portable devices, all part of a global network connected by satellites and then by fiber optics.

IEEE’s fields of interest expanded well beyond electrical/electronic engineering and computing into areas such as micro- and nanotechnology, ultrasonics, bioengineering, robotics, electronic materials, and many others. Electronics became ubiquitous—from jet cockpits to industrial robots to medical imaging.

As technologies and the industries that developed them increasingly transcended national boundaries, IEEE kept pace, becoming a truly global institution which used the innovations of the practitioners it represented in order to enhance its own excellence in delivering products and services to members, industries, and the public at large. By the early 21st Century, IEEE served its members and their interests with 38 societies; 130 journals, transactions and magazines; more 300 conferences annually; and 900 active standards.

By 2009, IEEE had 380,000 members in 160 countries, with 44.5 percent outside of the country where it was founded a century and a quarter before. Through its worldwide network of geographical units, publications, web services, and conferences, IEEE remains the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology.

IEEE's core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. Vision statement

IEEE will be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere, and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions. IEEE Quick Facts IEEE has:

more than 400,000 members in more than 160 countries; more than 50 percent of whom are from outside the United States;
more than 107,000 student members;
333 sections in 10 geographic regions worldwide;
2,110 chapters that unite local members with similar technical interests;
2,173 student branches at colleges and universities in 80 countries;
585 student branch chapters of IEEE technical societies; and
404 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, Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD), Women in Engineering (WIE) and Life Members (LM).
