Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers

Founded in 1884, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) was originally a professional organization for electrical and electronics engineering. Now, it just has grown so broad that it covers all kinds of engineering and technical fields. IEEE is the world’s largest technical and professional society and it publishes 30% of the electrical engineering and computer science literature in the world.

IEEE is a worldwide society, and is divided into regions, which is divided into sections, which is further divided into student branches. The U-Idaho student branch is located in the Palouse Section, which is part of Region 6.

Why should you be involved?
IEEE Members at the University of Idaho benefit from opportunities to:
  • Network with other engineers through workshops, conferences and various competitions and contests
  • Access scientific literature and the IEEE Job Database to find interesting job and career opportunities (Free for members)
  • Stay up-to-date on technological advances with the IEEE magazine
  • Purchase technical products and software at special IEEE discounted prices.

Members participate in many activities including guest speakers, awards banquets, technical competitions, professional workshops, and much more.

IEEE Student Leadership:

Neelima Dahal | Student Branch Chair
Electrical Engineering Senior
"I joined IEEE because it was a gateway to getting access to tons of literature and the job database. Networking was another prime factor. Also, I wanted to develop my leadership skills and IEEE being a professional organization in my field of study was just the perfect choice."

Peter Brown | Student Branch Vice Chair
Electrical Engineering Senior
"I joined IEEE not only to fulfill my passion for electrical engineering, but also as an opportunity to meet and work with both students and professionals from other engineering fields. From the resources it offers to the networking opportunities, IEEE is a natural choice!"

Fernando De La Garza | Student Branch Treasurer
Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Senior
"I joined IEEE because I thought it would be an interesting organization to be involved with."

Valarie Barry | Student Branch Secretary
Electrical Engineering Senior
"I joined IEEE because I like the networking opportunity and wanted to develop my professional and leadership skills."

Chris Booth | Student Branch Event Coordinator
Electrical Engineering Junior
"I wanted to become more involved with my department and field of study."

Member Involvement

Who can join?
Anyone in an engineering or technical field. (Undergraduate and Graduate students)

Time Commitment:
IEEE meets once a week, but it is up to each member to decide how much to get involved. The time commitment for officers depends on the number of events that have been planned out for the semester.

How do students join?
Register online at www.ieee.org or talk to one of the officers.
