Chapter Summary

The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) is a nonprofit organization whose aim is "to advance global prosperity by fostering technical innovation, enabling members' careers and promoting community worldwide". The IEEE was established in 1963, following the merger of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) and the Institute of Radio Engineers. The IEEE also plays a major role in the development of standards for IT, telecommunications, and power generated products and services through its Standards Association. Membership of this organization is open to "individuals who by education or experience give evidence of competence in an IEEE designated field of interest". The IEEE is organized into 319 sections in ten geographical regions. These are further sub-divided into 1676 chapters that bring together local members with similar technical interests, as well as 39 societies and five technical councils. The IEEE raises funds from membership dues, assessments, and fees.
